I see your point about those two; they have the most penalty-points.don't know, where you got the "Queen of Hearts" in Reversi from ... I know only about Jack of hearts and the Ace of Diamonds.
I was getting Queen of Hearts as paired with Jack of Hearts as both being called "quinola". Here is the quote from Wikipedia:
I really don't understand what these "pools" are, attached to the "quinolas". The Queen of Hearts seems to have minimal special point-value, so in that sense you are right. But it is still some sort of special card, called "quinola", whatever that means in the game.The little quinola pool, consisting of 13 chips and it is attached to the Queen of Hearts, called the “little quinola”. It should be renewed in the same manner, in proportion as the other. The “little quinola” cannot be put to the discard, unless there are 3 stakes, or 50 chips in the pool.
That's just New York. Other places are less formal. Chicago only has numbers going east-west and south of the center. Where I live, the numbered streets go one way, north and south, and named streets go the other way, east and west. They still tried to be practical, however; they thought of 23 or so "founding fathers" of the city each beginning with a different letter of the alphabet, and put them onto the east-west streets in alphabetical order, going north. Wikipedia writes (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northwest_ ... nd,_Oregon):ell, in Germany and in other European countries we still have names for streets.US-America - more modern - prefers mostly numbers, which is practical, if streets are organised like a chess-board.
They seem to have run out either of names or of Portland when they got to X, Y, and Z. I think after Wilson there used to be a very polluted lake. They drained the lake and added Yeon Street, but it is a little out of place. They had more than 23 east-west streets. They used other "founding fathers" south of Ankeny. And when Portland expanded onto the east side of the river, they only used the alphabetical names as far as Irving. So really my town is a little less than half like Europe.Several characters in Portland native Matt Groening's television show The Simpsons have names based on the alphabetically named streets in the Northwest District: Ned Flanders, the bully Kearney, Reverend Lovejoy, Mayor Quimby, Milhouse Van Houten (actually in North Portland), and possibly C. Montgomery Burns[ide] (also named for the large neon Montgomery Park, formerly Montgomery Ward, sign).
