    An opponent made comments on a game I had played with another opponent. How does one go about checking games played by others with opponents other than oneself? Lise

    Click on their name....left hand side is "person's public games"...click and browse.

    You can post games using the game ID number in this format:

    [gid]xxxxxxx[/gid]

    Here's one of yours:

    Game 4990845

    Thanks MontyMoose. I am not computer-savvy; where do I type [gid] game number [/gid]?

    You use that format if you wish to include a game in a post you are making to the forums, perhaps to discuss something or ask for advice. However never post or discuss a game that has not finished, a big no-no here at RHP.

    In the red bar above..click "help", then "FAQ". A lot of good information there and it shows the proper format if you wish to post games, threads, and other things to the forums. Oh and look again at the example in my first post..when you use these formats there are NO spaces between the brackets and the numbers.

    Go to the "Public Games" page.

    If you know both players, or only one, then give the name(s) in the input field(s) and you'll see the games found.
    If you know the game number of the game, then give that number into the approriate field.
