    Hi. Is it possible for a paid subscriber with whom I am playing (in mid-game) delete or cause our game to just disappear off of our playing fields as if it never existed? Is this one of the benefits that paid subscribers have? I thought thought after 3 moves, one could only resign a game, but it could never be deleted after that point. I noticed this just happened to me. Or is it a computer glitch? I did not write down the game I.D. ahead of its disappearance, so cannot research the number to further to look it up.
    Thanks.

    Really?? Then it must be a computer glitch? I play 12 games or less so it's easy to keep track of who I'm playing with. He's a real friendly chatty fellow so know I was definitely playing him, and he knows I was playing him. I wonder what can be done? Thanks for your answer.

    You can send him/her a message asking for further information.

    When you say "three moves", do you mean that one player has moved twice and the other player has moved once? In that case the game can be deleted by either player. To quote the site help:

    " If it is within three moves (remember moves are counted in pairs) you can simply delete the game. You will not be able to claim the win as the game is too immature."

    Three moves in this context means that each player has moved three times.

    It would be extremely unlikely for a game to just disappear.
    Could it have inadvertently been moved to a different folder perhaps?
    On the 'My Games' page, click on the 'All Games' folder box, see if you can find it there.

    It's somebody in this very thread!


    Let's look at the clues:

    paid subscriber
    friendly and chatty type
    and you have this game in progress? Game 12361197

    Case closed, Watson!

    It's not me, actually, although I do know who it is. 🙂

    Nope. It's Gonzo...FINIS..KAPUT--period. As a non-subscriber I am limited to playing only 12 games at a time, and I see all of them I'm currently playing in my Inbox playing field. He and I were well into our game--it was not the beginning. Anyway, it was not a particularly exciting game, so no biggie it got lost somehow by a software glitch. I told him what happened and he verified that he did not delete it either. He challenged me to a new game, and we are moving on. 🙂

    Not going to let this one go.

    What was your opponent's full screen name?

    The evidence just keeps piling up!
    You admit you have started a new game with this mystery opponent and now this game shows up on your list?

    Are you stalking her or me? And by the way, I'm also female. 🙂

    'Stalking?', Inspector Quimby laughed, 'No madam, just using public records to solve a puzzlement. Now, let's see, your name is QP?'

    'Actually, that's Kewpie.'

    'That's what I said, QP. The evidence is looking strong that you are in fact the mystery opponent whose game disappeared. Any statement?'

    'I don't remember any deleted game.'

    'Oh? Perhaps a few years at one of our fine penitentiarys spent shoveling kangaroo poop might jog your memory?'

    A thin bead of sweat appeared on QP's forehead. She had not expected this prank to turn so wrong.
