Do you play bridge, or is that last one just some trivia that you happen to know?

knowing how vs playing
i know the basic rules for chicago, as well as standard contract, and played doubles one summer. the beer card was just my favorite thing about the game. i don't have the patience for it these days, though it is pretty goddamn intricate.

Re: knowing how vs playing
I'm not really a very good player either. When I was in high school, some of my friends and I took it up together, so we sort of learned at our own pace. I know how to play standard contract, but I'm not up on a lot of the bidding conventions. But I really enjoyed playing the game, and I have often thought about trying to get some of my friends out here to pick it up.

Re: adult bridge
I can't remember ever trying to play when I was really off of my face, but it's good to play with cigars and scotch.

Also, when I used to play with my friends we didn't establish a "very reserved environment." There was plenty of table-talk and other such nonsense.

"i did say i was in an obnoxious mood."

one topic alone that can send you off into a juggernaut-knowledge-cock frenzy.....BEOWULF!

nerd points
unfortunately, like in elementary school, nerd points are only exchangeable for beatings by non-nerds, or hatred from other nerds.
