Removal of Blue at GameColony
Whether you are an experienced Internet player or new to "our world," here is a little insight into how the ACC tournaments at Game Colony will work:
a. Players will be placed into brackets, to the nearest power of 2 (e.g., 8, 16, 32, 64, 128). Assignments will be made by bracket, at least initially. (If you don't understand how brackets work, you can see the NCAA men's basketball brackets at http://sports.espn.go.com/ncb/ncaatourney06/bracket for a sample). Please be patient with the TD as you will not receive an assignment until your opponent has been determined and is ready to play.
b. All assignments will be in the "lobby" area. The first person listed will be responsible for "opening" the table. NOTE: The TD will not be able to notify you individually of your assignment so you must keep an eye on the lobby.
a.Please be patient with your opponents and the TDs as they "learn" their way around Game Colony tournaments.
b. Remember to leave the Sign-up and posting table as soon as you have been acknowledged as you may not be able to join another table if you are at that table.
The default setting at Gamecolony.com is not to allow changing discards to the crib. To allow changing your discards, following the following steps: 1. Start the table; 2. Click on Preferences; 3. Click on the Undo from Crib until it has a check mark in it. Note: Every time you have to close, then reconnect, you should do this.
Occasionally, your table might freeze up. It is usually easy to correct and just takes a few seconds to correct. There are two solutions, always try the first suggestion.
A. Try this first!
B. If 'A' does not work, then try this!

It takes a little practice to get use to manual scoring on GameColony.com. When it is time to score points, a manual scoring pull-down appears. This happens during play and when it is time to count the hand an crib.
To score, click on the pull-down arrow, then select the score to highlight it.Now take a deep breath and review your score. Once you are satisfied with the score, click on the SCORE button.
When you are the dealer, the score button is under the crib, make sure to score both the hand and crib before clicking on the SCORE button.
When scoring scoring play, do NOT include the count for last card or go, this is still handled automatically.
