    ^^ Eheh, very nice.

    I've got a variety. Usually fast-paced smashes, but resort to back hand spinning when critical. How far away from the table do you stand? Rules say approximately 3 feet, but some times I go as far back as 5 feet, or more.

    (Choosing between 'Great', and 'Very Good'.)

    It depends on how good the other player is. If the are good and hit harder shots, I'm going to end up further back.

    ^^ Yeah, that's normally case.

    I'd usually stand 'that' back to ensure rallies go on longer than if I were closer - and could counter more setpiece smashes if delivered from just below table height at that distance.

    Who's good at overarm smashes?

    Wait a damn minute!!!!! Where's the "pitifully awful - I tried once and never dared to again because I'm so uncoordinated, cannot follow the ball, and if I can, I sure as hell cannot hit it" option???

    Spins, defensive, and offensive.

    I was playing last night against a worth opponent, and sadly some of my hits had too much air.

    I love switching the paddle from hand to hand mid-"swing". It's good for developing coordination, and not just for showiness.

    Man, I would still be playing table tennis as much wanted - had it not been for career, such, and such, and such. Now, I'm beginning to wonder if the same skillset works for what I see in criteria to do with anything like ninjutsu.

    ^^ Why, of course. Good idea.

    I'd like to see some particularly astounding setpiece play - such as the first vid. Although, the matrix ping pong is amusing, and may work for some viewers, I'd think we could do with more 'actual' gameplay like the first vid - just to keep things a whole lot real.

    ... I've got one.
