I have a question.

I started a game with Blood Angel 3 days ago. I created it so he was playing White. I don't think he even knows about the game yet, since he hasn't even moved once. Now his timebank is running down.

If his timebank reaches zero, and he loses due to timeout, would that be an automatic win for me, even though he hasn't yet acknowledged the game?

I think if white doesn't move at all then the game never actually starts.  Nice try though. thumbsup.gif  tongue.gif

I agree, the game hasn't started at all.
But the timebank is counting down.

Perhaps it would be a stalemate. I guess i'll find out what it says if BA doesn't move before the timeout.

I think, if the game hasn't started, it would just be a stalemate...I'd hate to go on holiday for a while, and come back to find a bunch of people had challenged me to short games with low timebanks, just to up their winning score tongue.gif The site will have taken that possibility into account I imagine.
