Carnie: this game is setup with 1 day *total* time - for the *whole game*, not per move. You get 1 additional hour for each move made, but the original day does not get 'refilled' otherwise. You probably had not the whole day left.

How are the number of points added or subtracted to a BKR determined after a game is over? If I think I'm losing in backgammon, is it better to get as far as possible or just resign?

Carnie I sent you a game invite for hyper backgammon. I play my games daily and often check in when i have a free moment to make moves. Also as a pawn, I do not have hundreds or even over a 1000 games to get through to get your game with me.

Onderwerp: Re:
Carnie: I typically avoid multi-game matches in most cases. They take too long. Some people in tournaments drag their feet and we have had tournaments that have gone on for years and are still going on. In a some cases a few players no longer play here or they have died waiting for these tournaments to play out. Like you said the way things are going Brainking will be gone before you finish the 10 wins match.

I hate to play with slow people. I never join a tournament with time more than 3 days. It's not a problem when we are a rook but I understand it's a real problem for pawns, bishops or knights with limited moves.

5. maart 2017, 01:44:15
Brian1971 
When I was a rook, I played hundreds of games at a time and rarely ended a day without moving on each game at least once Now i am a pawn and carry 20 games, I find the games tend to move too slow for me I also play at bug cafe but unless you pay, you only get 15 moves per day. However a month long membership is only 5 dollars USD. A year is 30 USD. You can also do 3 month and 6 month memberships. If you like word games that is a great place for you and they have other games that brainking doesnt have like cribbage and canasta.

Carnie: There could. There could be all kind of such rules, and they have been discussed before (about once a year... scroll down.)
In a nutshell, it is not that easy. There are people that have 800 games running, and play all of them multiple times a days. And there are people who have five games and play each one after 30 days once. In other words, the count is not a good predictor of playing speed.

The only solution currently is that you make your own list of 'slow' players, and don't play with them anymore.

P.S.: My preferred idea is that the system shows at each players profile his 'average time to move' for the last 60 days; and that you can chose to 'hide all games and tournaments' where this number is greater than a number you decide.

Backgammon (robtoo vs. Carnie)

Could there be a rule against people putting and accepting games on the waiting games list when they have hundreds of games going already? We started playing in November and haven't finished our first game. I've started blocking people only because I don't want them to see my games and I check to see how many they have going before I accept a game. Can it be removed from my games please?

purchasing brainking makes to me only sense, if getting first the possibility to look into the accounting of the last years. Followed by a deal which includes a handing over to a new programmer. If a group comes together than I don't see a problem on who gonna decide what, cause for every serious organisation you gonna define the rules for every member since beginning.... for a group to take over I think the only issue could be to get together and deals done, so it sounds time consuming.... maybe better if only a few people comes together from a country, where programmer doesn't cost too much per hour... here in switzerland regular programmer asks between 80 to 200 euro for each hour of work...or some thousands euro a month if it's gonna be a full time job, which probably doesn't make sense....
