    A game I was playing timed out (I won) yet my opponent has plenty of time left in his timebank - 2.74 days to be exact.
    How did this happen?
    Game 2100802

    I've experienced the same thing but the explanation is simple:
    When a game is timed out, the 'time left' note is not trustworthy anymore.
    Is it a bug or a feature? No one knows.

    Yeah, it's a bug. Once someone is timed out, their timebank often jumps back up to a random level. Russ knows about this and I'm sure it's somewhere on his 'to-do' list.

    Thanks for the explanation.
    Strange that I didn't notice the timeout - it was an auto one.
