Tips & Tricks

Pace & Etiquette

For everyone's enjoyment, please respect the pace requests! If someone wants a fast game, don't join if you can only play one move per day.

👥 Live
Let your opponents know if you're going away! If you need to resume the game another day, arrange a time when you can all continue, or agree to continue playing at a different pace.
🏁 Fast
Turn on notifications so you can take your turns promptly. If you see that your opponent is online (the dot next to their name is filled in) then stay in the game for a while and perhaps you can play live for a bit.
🐌 Slow
If you create a game and know you can not play more than one move per day, please pick this option to set the appropriate expectations.
Anything goes. Read the game notice and adapt!
