As you might have noticed, we have recently introduced the auto pass feature for backgammon games. When a player accepts a game invitation, he can choose if he agrees to play with auto pass or not. However, this system doesn't work with Stairs because there are no invitations to accept/reject. There are two possible solutions of the problem:
All Stairs games will be played with auto pass by default. Who joins Stairs, must accept this rule.
Players will be able to specify whether they want to play Stairs games with the auto pass or not. Then, when a new Stairs game is created, it will use the auto pass feature only if both players have this option set to "accept".
