If a game has a time-bank then it means that you can go over the normal number of "time out" days by as long as the time bank is before your opponent is able to claim the game for themselves.
For example - If you set up a game with a 3 day time out and no timebank then you do not make a move for three days, your opponent could time you out and claim the win.
But if you set up a three day game with a 7 day timebank then it would be 10 days in total before your opponent could claim the win.
The time bank decreases with every moment that you are over the normal timout limit.
