|Hover over the game panel and then click your mouse to be seated at a table|
Suppose you want to play with a particular player. You can open the "list of tables" to see if this player is currently at a table with an open seat. In the next screenshot, I'm looking to play a game of Double Deck Pinochle with a friend whose username is "Mr Pinochle". The list of tables link is in the lower left corner of the home page. I've clicked that, and the list of tables panel is open.
|All tables that have open seats are shown in the list of tables|
Certain games have special Options which might show up in the list of tables, too:
- Pinochle - "pbo" means the "Bidder Out" rule applies (this is the default)
- Hearts - "afth" means the "Allow First Turn Hearts" rule applies
- Euchre - "std" means the "Stick the Dealer" rule applies (this is the default)
- Twenty-Nine - "sct" means the "Seventh Card" rule applies, and "drt" means the "Double Redouble" rule applies (this is the default)
- Spades - "nbps" means the "No Bag Penalty" rule applies
Getting back to the screenshot above: all that I have to do to play with my friend, who shows as a yellow star, is to click on his table in the list of tables. If I hover over the middle open square shown in the screenshot, and click there, I will be seated opposite him as his partner.
Note that I would not have seen my friend unless they had shared the name of their private table with me.... We agreed upon this name in advance, and I set it as one of my private table names. Private table names are discussed here.
If my friend is playing at any public table that has an open seat, then I will see them right away in the list of tables, too. You don't need a private table to play with someone that you like at World of Card Games. Just use the list of tables to look for the yellow stars which indicate people you have liked.
