    I'm currently playing 4 games. I initiated all of them (i.e. I sent invites to other players). One of them apparently is not a public game. I do not remember making any setting choices that should have had any effect on this. So how do I control this? What makes a game a public game? Thanks.

    Is it an unrated game?

    I don't recall that I created it that way. I don't see anything that indicates it is rated or not. I have no reason to suspect that it is not a rated game.

    On your 'My Games' page click INFO next to the game. Should tell you if it's rated or not.

    As far as I was aware, private games was legacy from a previous age in the site, and no longer possible.

    Thanks for the tip, Phlabibit. I clicked on Info and it says it is a rated game. If it is not public, I am wondering why it is not listed among the public games when I search for my own public games. Any thoughts? If private games are a non-functioning feature, then is there a type of game that is neither public nor private? Thanks again.

    Looks like a glitch. Send feedback to the site administrators - link at the bottom of the page. They'll sort it out.

    This is correct. All games are public now.

    You might want to click that player and see if they are playing at all anymore. Some people come, change their mind and vanish. If they don't plan to move, get rid of the game. Not saying you should just blast the game cuz the guy isn't moving right now, but you never know if they vanished.
