In hearts, eliminate the 3 minute per move feature. Use a clock, as in chess, were each player gets 3 minutes plus 5 seconds per card played
The clock I suggest would eliminate the stalling that is so pervasive. I am aware that yahoo is in it for profit, but the stalling is causing you to lose clients. When I started on yahoo about a decade ago, two rooms of advanced were always full. Now you have 40 to 125 players. Eliminate the people who use time as a weapon, and increase players, and make more money.
With the exception of Pool, Poker and Bingo, which already have new versions available, all Yahoo Parlor games will be completely shut down on March 31st, including their chat rooms, leagues and ratings. Please note, while Pool, Poker and Bingo do have newer version, the older versions are also being shut down on the 31st.
The new versions are also available in the app stores for Android and iOS versions. We will have a wide variety of games released throughout 2014, please watch for announcements on our Games homepage, on Facebook and in the news.
In hearts, eliminate the tram button.
