    The games do not have a time limit. The time out period is the amount of time you have to make a move.

    You can use the 'info' link next to the game (on the 'my games' page) to see the figures for:

    1)Timebank.
    2)Timeout.
    3)Timebank remaining.

    etc.

    On the info part there is a list on the right that includes "move timeout". Timeout is your length of time you can take between between moves.

    Timebank is an exhaustable supply of extra days, you don't have any if it says n/a, so you just have your timeout days to move in. If you fail to move within the timeout control your opponent will be able to claim a win on time.

    What I`m trying to determine is how much time my opponents have to move.I`m currently playing 3 games;#1352228,1352229 and 1352304,and it has been 10 days since any of my opponents have made a move!Where can I find out how much more time is left for each opponent to move before possible timeout???

    You can work it out from the available information. But I understand your frustration. The site has a number of absent features and isn't very good.

    I just looked at your three games.

    None show completion of two moves by each player, so they can be deleted by you without any effect. They will just go away as if they never were started. Your opponents may have just abondoned them and left you hanging.
