I just DQ'ed in hotseat (my 2nd dq in over 6 months). I know in Spady they have a one free pass type of rule for Roulette. Is there any way we could discuss inacting that rule in Hotseat and maybe Solo Flier and any other game that could be skipped through if there's a misplay?
In the case of Hotseat, all that needs to happen is for the partner of the person in the hotseat to order up and the game can continue and then the team has a warning, and if they do it again, there's a DQ.
In Solo Flier, a player may miss the alone button and it can be skipped through to the nest hand and they have a team warning as well (I would argue there should be no "free pass" if you're the dealer and forget to go alone because you could be doing it on purpose to get out of getting set on your deal, but then again, one free pass could be part of the strategy).
Anyway, my point is that i know there are quite a few people that DONT play the special rules games because of dq's, and most of us play those games because they are different and fun, and no one has fun when there's a DQ. I just think this would be an easy way to get more participation in special rules games and keep them from ending quickly.
I'm interested in other thoughts....
