In Response To: Chouette Etiquette question (David Levy)
What a simple, beautiful, and elegant response! And if you play legal counts, by implication if the group agrees on a count and cube action ensues, and then it is determined that the count was off, the players should be allowed, as gentlemen who employ the Legal Moves concept, to reconsider their cube action.
This also implies the attitude that one should not attempt to knowingly take advantage of others because of false information provided.
Yes, like Legal Moves it is not entirely enforceable and you are going in with a presumption that all in the game will be fair and honest. What a lovely assumption to have to make when you are playing a gentleman's game with friends! (Even if there is a friendly wager involved.)
And when you do identify someone who you feel does not live up to the gentleman's code, you can make your own decisions about whether to play with this person or how to conduct yourself when he is in the game.
Thanks, David. I love it!
And I believe that once everyone in the game agrees that this is the proper mode of conduct, we will rarely have a problem in this area. The problem arises because it has been a gray area that some people simply did not know was part of the proper etiquette of the game.
