Q. Will someone call the Director on me?

Happy New Year!

A. Our Directors are there to ensure that the game runs smoothly and that fairness and decorum are maintained. When anything unusual happens – during the bidding or play – the director should be called to restore equity or inform the players of their rights in the given situation. Having the director called on you is not an accusation of wrong doing – it’s the appropriate response to alert the director of an unusual occurrence. Unusual situations happen all the time – insufficient bids, leads out of turn, revokes – to name a few and the Director should be called each and every time. Whenever a player feels as though unauthorized information has been shared, the Director should be called. If players are being disruptive or unpleasant in any way, the Director should be notified so they can address and remedy the situation.
