I'm Just Me - a little insight to Joker
Posted by Joker (moderator) 14 Nov 2019 8:28pm


I've been a player and host here for almost 20 years. Seen lots come and go. Here we are a family loosely but a real family.

Here I want to post about, with your help, your problems and fears, your laughter and tears. I will post about all kinds of issues both game related and not game related. Not only what is on my mind but on yours also. Will comment. not always but as the need arises and I extend the offer to each and everyone of you to do also. Come join me in this so we can share life together.

Last but must be said. Peg or PEGASUS, the prior moderator was my mentor. She took me through the loops with many struggles and helped me become the Tournament Director I am today. Peg I salute you and thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I remain. AND Always will be, the JOKER ♥

Hey Joker, Iíve been considering doing this thru Skype or something, Iím in total agreement, family extends beyond cards or Gin.

When we make friends, we should be able to live and touch each in ones own way. I know there have been times when a prayer list would have sure helped, since we canít really be there under the confidentiality circumstances.

As Iíve said before, need me call me, 704-575-5595

Family indeed!

I agree wholeheartedly Joker. I have been on the site for almost 12 years, and it is like home to me. I even met my husband playing cribbage here, leading to my emigration to the US from the UK. We celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary in December!

just me

Jan (Spider) was my mentor when I became a TD. I had been playing a lot of tourneys in crib, when Spider sent me a pm, she wrote "Rocky I need you" I was flattered because....well (blush). Then she told me she wanted me to be a TD for crib. I accepted and hosted (off and on, for some years. I don't play crib in any other website (although I have, but none = g/c)

Is this still a thing

Wondering where Joker is. See nothing has been posted since 2019. I like the concept and think it needs to be brought back.

Ronnie, unfortunately, Joker passed away after a long hard fought battle.

At you can play games of skill only -- play for free or play for $prizes!. According to the statutes of most states in the United States, gambling is defined as: "risking something of value upon the outcome of a contest of chance". (Also see No Gambling!).   The skill (as opposed to chance) is predominant in games of skill. Playing games of skill for $prizes, therefore, has nothing to do with gambling as it is not a contest of chance -- the more skillful player will win far more often. The chance element of a 'gamble' is either insignificant or missing. When players compete in tournaments or games of skill for $prizes -- it is "competitive entertainment" rather then "gambling". The more skilled winner will always win more matches, tournaments and $prizes.
