That game isn't worth playing Thistle.



Don't give up so easily Snake, there's still plenty mileage in this game and it could still go either way.

I just want to add - please feel free to take any and all timeouts that come up, participants who regularly time out in their games will end up being removed from the tournament anyway.

If you do take a time out, it does count as a win for you, so you can post it up on the scoreboard as usual, although if that participant does end up being removed, then all their scores will be discounted.

Unfortunately this is the only way to keep things moving along without making the scoring unfair in the process.

That kind of defeats the purpose of the game, to me at least. I'd rather try and earn the win. original.gif

If you give them infinite time to play, odds are you wont finish all your games before the tourney ends. Plus, the win is useless anyway if they're disqualified for timing out too much, so that'll be a hard game won, useless.
Best to just take the win.

Sorry, my fault  tongue.gif

One space open, someone challenge me, please.

There is no time limit on a game which is running and both players are moving on a regular basis, the limit applies when one player doesn't move for days on end.

When this happens, the timebank bar will slowly drop until the other player can claim the win by default. The other player will have to have not moved for over a week in order for this to happen, or will have to have been inactive for periods of time totalling to over a week.
