    When playing a game and your opponent dips into their timebank, what do you do? Do you message them as soon as the little icon comes up, or do you wait a couple days? I waited a while. I'm just curious to see if there is a general take on when is a good time.

    I wouldn't bother. Players don't forget.

    I have a game right now that the timebank has run out for my opponent.

    I just wanted to know if there is a general outlook on whether or not its "rude" to claim the win after the time bank is gone.

    When a game is started both players agrees about the time. Both players knows the time in hand. If the time runs out then it is equally agreed that the other can claim a win.

    But if the vacation flag is set and the player informs what date he is coming back - then it is rude to claim a win. Is this the case in your game?

    How do you do when the time runs out in a game over the board? Do you tell him to make a move or do you claim a win then? Of course you'll claim the win, everybody does that. The same answer apply here.

    No vacation flag.

    Fortunately, in my 3 years of league play back in high school, I never ran into that situation. That is why I'm asking.

    I ignore it until I see the little skull. Then I CLICK IT.
