I know, i'm also increasingly frustrated at the lack of moves being made.
I have 6 games. A big thankyou to kratos for playing with me all day. 1 other one has a pretty active mover, thank you talon. The other 4, two of them were started by me and have 1 day timebank thingies, so the opponents are moving once every 24 hours. The others were started by other people and have 3 day timeout bank things and they're moving once every THREE DAYS. Argh.

The rules quite clearly state that timeouts should be set to 1 day, it's so frustrating waiting 3 days for a single move.  If you get any more challenges with a 3 day limit I'd refuse them, delete the game and restart it yourself with the correct limit.

Basic rule is always look at where you put peices. Ask are they under attack? Are they covered? Could they be under attacked if something else moved?

Burnside, PLEASE accept the draw. I don't want to chase you all over the board for the next few days. Knowing my luck I'll end up getting checkmated myself.

I saw it, but then I went and looked at the game and it is actually a draw. Each individual has 1 pass pawn, but can't stop the other's king taking it within the next two moves. The only officer remaining on the board is a bishop, and a bishop and a king can't checkmate, its impossible. So Snake_6024 right its a draw, the only thing he's wrong about is the getting checkmated himself part.... unless one of them wants to do something stupid like let the other one Queen.
