Any bridge players here, either face to face or online? The top bridge club on the planet is BridgeBase Online, founded by a Canadian now in Las Vegas: Fred Gitelman. Bill Gates put money in it and both Gates and Buffett play there.
It's called BridgeBaseOnline, BBO for short.
I play there under a "handle." Great fun! Oh, and it's free!
It's always been a game I had interest in learning.
My downtime is spent on yahoo euchre.

When I moved to BC from Toronto, I couldn't believe that none of the locals had ever heard of Euchre. Then again, they were equally shocked that I had never heard of Big Two.

Euchre is just bridge with training wheels.
What's Big Two?

Big2 is a card game for 2, 3, or 4 players.
Each player receives 13 cards and the objective is to be the first player to discard all your cards.
The player holding the lowest ranked card starts by discarding a card set that includes the lowest ranked card (eg. in a 4-player game, the lowest ranked card is 3). Each player, in turn, plays a higher card set or passes. This continues until 3 players pass. The remaining player then starts a new round with any card set. Passing doesn't prevent you from playing subsequent hands in the same round.

Big Two is basically Asshole with the added twist of poker hands. Both of these card-shedding-style games seem to have originated in Asia.
