    How many games can you have as a non-subcriber? I looked in the faq but couldn't find anything. Please help!

    Six games at the same time is the maximum number of games for non-subscribers.
    But as long you don't exceed six simultanuous games you can have as many as you wish.

    6 games. Which, considering how complicated a game of chess can be, is more than enough for alot of people.

    What? You mean if we subscribe you'll tell us how many games we can play as non-subscribers?

    Ok, so I can't have more than 6 games at the same time. But there is not a limit to the amount of chess games that I can play before having to subscribe to play more, correct?

    yes, start 6, finish one... then start another, finish 1 more.. start one more...

    but would will eventually realize what a great deal the membership is and probably join...

    the 6-game limit becomes a bit of a bind when one of your opponents has an exam, another has left the site and not said anything, and a third puts up a vacation flag - then you have 3 games going and at the moment it isn't your move ... that's about the time when you decide to pay up and get rid of the problem (and those pesky ads).

    Yup, I've seen players with 1700+ games running. Although quite how they manage that is beyond me. (actually, he didn't and after trying to hold it with vacation flags, his rating bombed from about 1600-800 but he's built it back up since).

    Personally, I play fairly fast and find about 10 games the most I can sensibly manage. If you've got the mind for it and take time to analyze, you can run more, each to their own.

    Subscribe....instead of looking like a shadow you can be an avatar. No ads–cool. But, appreciation for a place to play and learn chess is best shown by forking over the frog skins. it also brings further improvements to the site.
