"Received the 45s game VERY quickly. I played it for a few hours yesterday. The game play is very realistic - Merrimack Valley Style. The computer players haven't made a questionable move yet ! I gotta meet the characters in the game - what a hoot !"

Q. How does the 4-way game work? Do people have to look away when it's not their turn? Is it just a one-player game? Thanks.

A. Actually the computer plays the hand of your partner and the computer plays the hand of the two opponents. All you have to do is look at your own hand which is displayed face up on the screen.

Q. "Is it possible to customize the game? Lowell Rules - No Kitty and the dealer can take the bid for 5 more points?"

A. Yes, there are options to customize the game but not all the options everyone wants yet. One option we support is the ability to require "Follow off suit" or not. We are looking at adding the ability to change the target score of the game, play "Bidder goes out" if both teams are on the green, have a Kitty or not, allow the dealer to take the bid for an additional 5 points.

Q. My friend and I have a dispute over the "bidder goes out" rule. He claims the following in this scenario. I have 115 points and he has 90 points. He claims that if he overbids me when both people have over 90 points (In the green) that although he make his bid of say 25 and I make the remaining 5 points, another hand will take place because I did not bid. He claims that although I have reached the 120 points to win and he is now at 115, we must play another hand. I told him he is insane and the "bidder goes out rule" is only that if both people are tied at the end with say 110 points, then the person bidding say 15 wins although they would both be tied at 125 if both make 15 points. Can you tell what the correct ruling is so I can email him the answer please. Thank you.

A. Answering a question like this is really outside the goal of our web site since we don't pretend to be experts in the game. But, from my experience with the "Bidder goes out rule", your friends understanding of the rule is correct. Once you are both on the green (90 pts or more) then only the bidder can win. But, you both need to agree to use this rule before reaching the green. Playing this way is an option not a requirement.

A. The game is not available to play for free on the web. But you can buy it for $25.00. That is almost "free" if you consider the enjoyment you will get from it.
