I have officially learnt rook!

I undertook some horrific research on the rules, and after undergoing gruelling trial sessions, I played my first game of rook...and dominated! With my partner of course.

 :D

Hey, I'm learning too. I read all of that wiki article earlier. And I've played a couple of games.
See you there Bakster  :P

Actually, it's nice game :) It took me some time to learn basic tactics to not ruin partner's play, but then it's fun.

It wasn't really horrific research, just sarcasm :P

The rules are quite simple. I won a few games last night.

Once I passed 1000 for cyber battles, I decided to learn rook too, and I'm pretty good at it now :D

Anytime you guys want to play, I'm up for it.  I'll show you the Americans can beat the Brits in more ways than one ;D
I am a firm believer that the integral of e^x = f(u)^n, or, in mathematical notation: sex = fun.

luck has a lot to do with it...just like any other card game...but its not 100% luck...ask any rooker and they will tell you it takes some skill too...
