I've been playing Yahoo Spades for a long time, probably since it came out. I tend to play in spurts, so I'll go through a period when I play several games a day, then I'll go months without playing a single game. I've played literally thousands of games.

Over the years the game has really gone downhill. Or rather, the maturity level of the players has gone downhill. I feel like I'm dealing with children. I have to deal with temper tantrums, foul langauge, know-it-alls, and stalling (anyone had to sit through a "three minute" game??).

Let's not even talk about the non-stop porn spamming in the chat room by bots. Yahoo has given up trying to stop that stuff.

Anyway, end of rant.

I use to play blackjack and texas hold'em on their a little bit. For a while I started playing spades, but being a beginner on their is hard. You constantly have people yelling at you for doing something wrong or this or that... I decided really fast not to play on their anymore and instead started playing Texas Hold'em on True Poker. I dont even play spades anymore because of the members on Yahoo.

I've never played Yahoo! games, but I know what you mean about the chatrooms there in general. I used to go there all the time, years ago. Once apon a time you could actually meet 'real' people and have interesting conversations. I met quite a few decent email pals and IM buddies there. The Yahoo! folks seem to have thrown up their hands and handed Chat over to the pornbots and trolls, rendering it useless. I don't know why they even bother keeping it up. They shut down the private rooms because pervs were using them to lure kids. What a mess!
