Hi, I found your blog post through a search for "Nerts". It is cool to see others that know about the game. I hope you don't mind but I wanted to let you know about, the site for the National Nertz Association. There is a bunch of interesting Nertz information there and you can also find out how to play Nertz online there. I hope you will check it out. Feel free to join and also let your friends and family know. Thanks
