The best way to avoid the download blues is to download the game client once to your hard disk, and then view it within your browser, or better yet run it stand-alone. If you have a high speed link (at work?) then you can run it from this web site.
You can also obtain the rules from here!
This is recommended, and requires you to download approx 200K of game client only. You will require the Java Runtime , currently the supported platforms are Windows NT/2000/XP, some flavours of Mac, and Solaris/Linux (as per the Java Runtime Environment).
Before downloading you must agree to the following license agreement, if you agree then click on the agree button!
