What I care about is left and right. My problem... and actually I don't think I'm the one with the problem... is that I look at the "table" setup and I still know which way is left and right for me, but the game is made as though I don't.
If I got up from the table and walked away from it somewhere, I could still look at my spot at the table and know which way is left and which way is right. I know which direction is which going around the table. I could look at the person across the table from me and still know which way is going left and which is going right (even though it's backwards from my point of view). But I still know which direction is which. Otherwise how could I tell which way people are passing cards? I know which direction the cards should be going, even for the player across the table from me. I can still manage to teach that person the game and know which way is which. The game interface is set up as though I'm the one across the table, but as though I can't figure that out for someone across the table.
So I feel the game screws me over a bit because I actually have the visual ability to know my directions regardless of the view. I have to reorient my brain to think of the other players as being behind me, so that the "left" player is to the back left over my left shoulder. That's a pretty awkward way to play. I would never, ever have my back to the other players like that. I should be facing into the middle, and from that point of view, the arrows are backwards. You'll also never convince me otherwise.
Which is why I won't even play the thing, which is rather disappointing.
