Players have to participate in a minimum of nine out of…

Wilf’s Life Advice





My father has given me two pieces of life advice that I can remember. He likely only gave two because he knew that I wouldn’t be able to remember much more than one and a half of them. If you count his furrowed brow every time I do something he disapproves of, or his head tilted back to let out a sinister laugh every time I do something stupid, then he has given me four pieces of… Continue

Apparently Crokinole and Drinking Don't Mix

Applying the rule to the last game of a playoff accomplishes my goal, however it could be used in each game of a playoff. It's use…

Re: Wimbledon Tiebreaker.
