What do you like to do away from the computer?

How did you learn about Eliters and when did you join?

I was playing a game of Pino in Yahoo under a different name, "King of Aces." Had a high rating so I could only play in certain lobbys, but always ran into the typical BAD ATTITUDES and became a stress just to relax and have a fun game. An Eliter was in there and in my game and said---Hey come and check us out-- we have a bunch of fun... and SOOOOOOO I did.


How did you pick your Eliters' Name? Is this your one and only?

NUCK stands for Pinochle as in like double nucks (Don't ask me why i spelled it that way), and I have no idea why I put master on it. I have had two or three other names -- Wizard_of_Nuck and King of Aces, to name two of em.


What is your preferred play site? and Why?

Well, Pino is great for me. I can play other games such as Euchre or Spades or Bowling and probably learn the others, just am limited on time.


What made you keep coming back to Eliters?

(Editor's note: Thanks Nuck, I saw that! For a man, you aren't a bad student! Chicks rule!!!)


In your opinion, what makes Eliters different from other leagues?

We have a very well organized set of rules and procedures, and focus is placed on providing a fun place to be. I don't think other leagues are as well organized and don't place the emphasis on enjoyment and relaxation as much as Eliters.

(Editor's Note: The funniest thing is yet to happen! Be afraid, be veryyyyy afraid!
