"Four-on-One" Shuffle and Deal

This class is a one-hour supervised play (AKA "Shuffle and Deal"). It's a little different from face-to-face Shuffle and Deal games in that you will not be sharing me with a lot of other tables. There is only one table in play, so you have exclusive access to me during play. I will answer questions as they come up, and can also critique your bidding and play and talk about the deal after it's played if warranted.

SIGNUP INSTRUCTIONS
Because of high demand and the difficulties in scheduling, I will no longer accept signups from solo players or pairs. My apologies, but the process is just too difficult trying to mesh everyone together. Please sign up as a group of four.
