    Will it be possible to view all the groups on one page rather than each having their own folder?

    There will be too many groups to view all at once. Your browser won't like it, and neither will our servers.

    So am I right in assuming this is basically a 0/60 tourney?

    With 0 day timeout? How does that work?




    Edit: Actually it says Timeout: n/a So is that 0 day timeout or no timeout at all?

    It means you have to make all your moves in 60 days - which is a pretty long time actually, most games are over well before the time limit is ever reached.

    hmmmm, okay, that makes more sense really

    Sorry if this seems dumb, but brand new... If there is a 0 Timeout with a 60 day timebank. Does that mean you must make a move every day or do you have the entire 60 days to finish the game regardless of move schedule. And does that mean 60 days per game...

    Hi there, Imagine you are playing otb with 60 days on the clock, you make your move and your opponents clock starts running down from 60 days, he makes his move and then your clock starts running down. you must make all your moves before "your flag" falls. At least that is how i understand it. hope this helps

    The most exciting bit is the draw - it's all downhill from there

    This will certainly break the 1000 barrier. MAMA
