    How long do I have to claim a skull?

    The skull will remain until one of these things happen:
    1. You click on it.
    2. Your opponent resigns.
    3. Your opponent makes a move.
    4. Russ does one of his housekeeping chores and wipes out any game in which neither party has moved for a long time.

    I didn't know an opponent could make a move after his/her time ran out. The time clock starts all over again?

    A timeout game remains valid until the win is claimed. (In OTB games, if your opponent doesn't notice that you're out of time you can move again.) On this site I believe tournament or clan games may be timed out automatically but I don't know how long that takes.

    If you don't claim the skull, your opponent can still move and the time clock restarts.
    However,time bank is lost in that game for ever.
    I think it's just tournaments where the auto timeout applies.
