    Hi all :hiya:

    well, quite enjoying the single player of this game despite knowing nothing about poker previously. Anyway, all I know so far are the very basics but I'm trying to learn as I go which is always the better way for me.

    Just wondered if there were another 7 newbie poker players out there that would fancy having an online game or few, just for fun?

    If so pop your names down here & we can arange the best time to meet up for some games:)

    List of players including [gamertags]:

    Great, perhaps if anyone can only play between specific times they can pop those times time aswell, then we can arrange as soon as we have a full table:thumbsup:

    Yeah, I saw you just once, tried teleporting over to you but couldn't find you after that. I seem to have a problem with PGR3 and haven't tried NFS:MW online apart from when I tried to join you that time. Don't have any problems joining people for COD2 though which is odd.

    I have a feeling this game shouldn't present any problems though as it's all pretty basic. Guess time will tell.

    I'm pretty versatile on times so can probably manage to play whenever most suits the rest of you.

    Yep, should be able to, we've already got 5 of us(if we can all get online at the same time of course). There must be loads of us that haven't played poker before but claimed the freebie:)

    Well we should all be in the same boat from this thread so will be good practise for us begginers;)

    Hmm, after being unable to join someone from my friends list on this game tonight, I fear I might not be able to join anyone else either:(

    Might be down to my moderate NAT settings which I will attempt(being the key word) to get sorted. Either way I'll keep this thread open with names updated so the rest of you can at least meet up for a few games.

    Hope I can get my joining problems sorted, was really looking forward to playing a few games of this online.

    Well I am pants at this too so I'll glady join in for a comedy game or two! My problem is that availability is variable, so I can't even say "after 9.00pm will be fine" because until it gets closer to the time, I won't know!

    ok, we now have enough for a full table even if one of use can't play. I'm going to try to get a test game with the people from this thread that are already on my friends list later to see if I'm able to join or host(wasn't able to join someone last night for this game).

    If all goes ok I'll add everyone else here(hmm, if I can make space on my already full friends list:rolleyes: ) and maybe arrange here for tomorrow sometime.

    If I discover I'm unable to join people on this game due to my moderate NAT settings, i'll post here again & leave it for the rest of you to arrange a game, really hope I can play though as I've been looking forward to this.

    Lee.

    Ok people here's the next thing, no doubt some of you from this list are already on each others friends lists?

    Tetlee [Tetlee]
    darren eaf [Eaffy]
    C225 [C225]
    Caveman49 [Caveman49]
    isolie [isolie3]
    Shrimp3r [Shrimp3r]
    kevinthekoala [Deputy Dawg uk]
    bilbob [shootNhope]
    runam0k [runam0k]

    If so please let me know who you have? The reason is I only have a couple of spaces on my list so would need to remove people to make space to send invites out, which I don't want to do if I can avoid it. Of course we don't all need to be on each others lists, as long as everyone can receive an invite from one of the players at the table;)

    Anyway, I already have C225 & Shrimp3r on my friends list, if nobody replies to this I'll try to make space for the others listed in this thread.

    Would everyone be up for a monday afternoon or evening game?

    Easiest way is to click on the persons gamertag and once the page is loaded click send request.

    PS if you have forgotten your password just click on where it says forgotten password and you shoud be able to find it out.

    Perfect, if you're happy to send out friends requests to the others on the list then you'll be able to invite them all into the game, solves that problem:thumbsup:

    Seems monday is good then, shall we say 7:00pm UK time to give everyone time for their tea?
