MWR & Spades
When I was without internet back at Fort Hood, I used the USO facilities on post to keep in touch with you all. But out here, we use the MWR much more, which stands for Morale, Welfare, and Recreation. We have a small MWR operated by our company with computers and internet phones to use.
The one plus side of this curtailed internet access is more platoon-bonding in the evenings instead of retiring to our personal computers. The chief for of evening entertainment is playing cards, a variation of the game Spades specifically. I'm pretty decent at it, but I haven't developed the ability to read my opponents or partner the way some guys can. I just use the logic of the game and let the cards fall how they will.
