Forget by E-MAIL, it would be too slow. We COULD do it
in a chat room quite easily, with instant messages
flying back and forth between the dealer and the
players (and even between players). 

Unfortunately, some of the fun would be diminished
since so much depends on INTERPLAY and teasing
(especially with The Minstrel Card), but I'd be up for
it. I think we'd need to set up either an AOL chat
with instant messaging on the side, or yahoo chat with
instant messsaging on the side.

Anyone who wants to add me to their buddy listrs, just
punch in "mrgrooism" for either/both AOL/YAHOO.

One benefit is that those who own the game but don't
know how to play could watch, lay out the cards and go
from there! yup, EVEN MARK!!!

What do you say Aaron, I leave the time/place up to
you since it was your basic idea!
