    Currently waiting for an opponent to move.....that's fine not a problem....they have over 1000 games in progress which is quite a to do list !
    I just wonder at what point it becomes a chore and not just fun. 1000,1500,2000+ ? ( about 10 for me)

    It has been done by quite a few users here, most have encountered a massive wave of time-outs. Even if you are not online one day the number of waiting games become immense...

    I think I strike the line around 100. (I have a skull collection, which I take after about one year).

    every now and then i feel like a mere two games is too much too bear...
    my brain gets all fuzzy and thoughts are hardly ever finished, the complex interactions of chess pieces reminds me of the days in the orphanage when i was required to clean the toilets while being beaten with leather straps...
    ah, such good times...

    Were the leather straps solid like my remembrances of the strap at school (ouch) or were they limp like those of a bullwhip (ouch too)?

    i think i've had as many as 40 games going at a time...
    the random chaos of my universe declares that crazy stuff will happen if i try to engage in any more than that...

    i have enough crazy stuff happening already...
