But I want to avoid having them pile up, and I don't want to just default on a game I'm obligated to play.
How is this happening?
Most players like playing newcomers. You will get challenged and you either accept or decline. Since you are not a paying member you will be able to carry a maximum of six concurrent games. Like the other responder said, if you click on the trashcan icon the game is deleted. This has to happen within three plays or you have to play on. Once the trashcan icon is gone the only way is to play on, resign, checkmate or get checkmated. Also, you can also find players, challenge and these can accept, decline in the same manner. It is good form to message opponent and offer a greeting through the message board on the game board or PM opponent if you start as black.
