    Important Notice Due to a huge increase in activity on the 'Red Hot Pawn' site, we have regrettably had to limit the number of concurrent active games for non-pawnstars to 10. We feel that this is a large enough number of games for the majority of players and hope that this does not cause too much inconvenience.

    To remove this limit, please consider becoming a Pawn Star.

    I have nine games going. This does this every time I try to start a game. Can someone tell me why this is?

    (I plan to become a pawnstar soon anyway.)

    It's a secret. Only pawnstars are allowed to know the answer. Become a pawnstar and you'll know too. 🙄

    It fixed itself 😀. I'll become a pawnstar when I get a job.

    There's a small bug for non-members that I don't think RHP knows about. If you have 9 games going you can't create an open invite, but if you directly challenge someone or accept a game you can start a 10th game. .. I got around that by becoming a member. 😵

    I considered it, rejected the idea, but the limit still exists. Bug?

    Be practical, royalchicken; you never know when "companies" like these will go belly up so just promise with the hand on your heart you'll become a member at the end of your first year (effectively paying for the *past* year) and pretend you're already a member. 😉

    This is a known problem - but it does rectify itself if you just wait a couple of hours.

    We maintain a current game count against each user, sometimes it drifts by one. This problem will need to be fixed, as we are considering lowering the number of 'free' games at some point, probably to 6.

    But fear not, for the time being, and until this problem is solved, it will remain at 10 (give or take 1 😳)

    The problem rectifies itself a few time a day. So if ever you can't start the full 10 games, you just need to wait a while...
