  1. In Egypt, the way to play is completely different from yours

  2. I thought estmation can only be played with 4 ?

  3. really great walkthrough. it was more concise than what i have been reading/watching.

  4. My family’s favourite card game! Except we call it ‘blobs’ and keep score simply by the person with the least amount of blobs at the end winning (a blob being an incorrect guess that has been scribbled out)

  5. Here is an interesting thought, I play this game with my family now and then, and something i have noticed is that the player who bids 0 the most often wins the game. We play with a scoring system where if you get exact amount of tricks as bids you get that number plus 10. Then we give 1 point for each trick if you do not meet or underbid. So a bid of 0 and receiving 0 tricks is 10 points. I am curious is there a correlation to the number of 0's bid and your estimated win percentage. In my house we often play with large amounts of people usually like 8 or 9 and we have hand size start at max possible for that number of people then decrease to 1 then backup to max. Would you be interested in potentially finding the solution to this question as it is very peculiar and complicated? (I am not good at statistics so i need help.)

  6. I just bought a pack of authentic playing cards and I just want to learn how to play them….

  7. When playe1 plays 6♦️ why ply 3 did not played ♠️ the trump and he has instead played Q 💔 plz explain

  8. Ah now I know from where the Card Game Wizzars is coming. Its a copy … I haven't understood how many rounds are played in total. When ends the game ?

  10. Million Dollar Potential in Ruvol

    I have invented a Board Game [still unpublished and not yet out in the market] that is guaranteed to be far more challenging and exciting than CHESS. I called it “RUVOL.”

    Over time, Ruvol will surpass chess as the “Number One Board Game in the World.”

    Why am I so sure about this? Because I am an avid chess player myself.

    The weakness of chess is it always starts in fixed positions that the opening moves become “memorizable.” In fact, not a few have so mastered the moves that they can play against their opponents “blindfolded.” It is for this very reason that the great Bobby Fischer introduced his so-called “Fischer Random Chess,” where the starting position of the pieces is “randomized” to make the memorization of openings impracticable. Fortunately, it is also for this reason that I invented Ruvol where “every game” has been calculated to be a challenging one to play.

    HOW IS RUVOL PLAYED?

    Ruvol is played somewhat like chess. It is played by two players. It uses a board that is rectangular in shape but contains more number of squares than chess. It has equal number of pieces on each side of the board, where each type of piece moves in distinct ways. However, if the way to win chess is to checkmate the opponent’s king, the way to win Ruvol is to be able to cross a designated line.

    But there’s one big advantage Ruvol has over chess: The Ruvol pieces are randomly placed at the start of “every game” which makes it impossible for any clever player to memorize the moves.

    A MILLION DOLLAR POTENTIAL IN RUVOL!

    The people who play chess will be the same people who will play Ruvol. In my Google search, I learned there are around 800 million chess players in the world. These 800 million players comprise the “Total Potential Buyers” of Ruvol across the globe. At an average profit of just US$3 per set, the “Global Income Potential” of Ruvol then is US$2.4 billion. Assuming only 1% of it will buy each year, the annual global potential sale of Ruvol is US$24M.

    I AM LOOKING FOR AN INVESTOR!

    For the reason that I don’t have the resources to publish Ruvol on a global scale, you might be interested to have the exclusive right to manufacture and market Ruvol globally under a “licensing agreement.” Or better yet, just “BUY MY COPYRIGHT” and Ruvol is entirely yours.

    Thanks and God bless!

  11. Business Opportunity in Ruvol

    I have invented a Board Game [still unpublished and not yet out in the market] that I believe is guaranteed to be as challenging and exciting as CHESS. I called it “RUVOL.”

    It is my hope that one day Ruvol may surpass chess as the “Number One Board Game in the World.”

    The weakness of chess is it always starts in fixed positions that the opening moves become “memorizable.” In fact, not a few have so mastered the moves that they can play against their opponents “blindfolded.” It is for this very reason that the great Bobby Fischer introduced his so-called “Fischer Random Chess,” where the starting position of the pieces is “randomized” to make the memorization of openings impracticable. Fortunately, it is also for this reason that I invented Ruvol where “every game” has been calculated to be a challenging one to play.

    HOW IS RUVOL PLAYED and HOW YOU CAN MONETIZE IT?

    I detailed everything in my YouTube video. Here is the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jcqth0m3-R0

    BIG MONEY POTENTIAL IN RUVOL!

    It is worthwhile to note that the people who play chess will be the same people who will play Ruvol. In my Google search, I learned there are around 800 million chess players in the world. Even just a small percentage of these 800 million is good enough to earn big money from Ruvol either as an ONLINE GAME BUSINESS or as a PHYSICAL PRODUCT DISTRIBUTOR.
