    i have 5 games going but when i try to start another game it says important notice: it has been reduced to 6 game... on and on and on. any help?

    same conflict as for the old 10 game limit. You can have 6 games going, but you can't start the 6th. You can be challenged, or you can pick up an open invite, but you can't create it. I doubt it'll change.

    Just in case you missed this post, I've qupted it. The problem in creating games when you have 1 space left is an old one & existed back when the limit was 10 games. There are ways around it, such as getting the other person to challenge you (send them a message?).

    I have no idea how much work would be involved to fix this, it may be a lot or very little. But C&R's list of things to do is very long, and ask yourself this: where on that list do you think a problem that only affects non-subscribers will come? Not trying to be mean, but it makes sense to me that it will be pushed below other, broader issues.

    A quick fix would be to declare hat the game limit was 5, and anyone who worked out that they could get around this & have 6 games going would feel that they had gained something instead of feeling he was losing something by not being able to start the 6th so easily.

    I believe message read "get them to challenge you". I can't check, but I've been told this is possible.

    Ok, I know this is a causing some pain - and I expected quite a few more complaints when we switched to the 6 game limit.

    My word to you, I GUARANTEE I will fix this within the next few weeks.

    Hey Russ, maybe you can just bump the limit up to 7 games, then everyone will be able to get their 6 game limit....

    Is your game counter starting at the number 0 or the number 1?

    Just a couple of thoughts,

    Although I hope you work full time (as me 😉 😉 ) on the site here 😀 😀, I hope she does not allow you to get your laptop on your honeymoon...
    BTW: where R U going to?
