    Is it possible to search for a new game with a criteria of number of games played?? I would like to play new subscribers who have ratings (other than 1200 newcomer) and who have not!!! played 1000 games. I would like to search for say, ratings between 1150 and 1250 and games played < 50. I keep getting games deleted by players who have over 1000 games played (sometimes over 5000 games).

    Any merit to this suggestion?

    I assume you mean moves rather than games. There is only, to my knowledge, one player with more than 5000 games played (Dustnrogers).
    And no it isn't possible at the moment. Just search through the player tables for suitable players I guess.

    EDIT: Cheshire Cat also has over 5000 games it seems. I forgot draws.

    Thanks, but the search gives "top 30 hits" with no way to see next 30, etc. I just looked and the column heading seem to refer to games played, not moves. Smallest number in top 30 (seems to be sorted on games played) was 1100, with top one at 5130.

    Seems like the Find Games search needs one or two more fields and/or the opportunity to see more than 30 hits.

    Do the moderators read these posts??

    That'll give you a page with people rated 1250. If you keep increasing the number at the end you get people with lower ratings.

    Or you could search the find players using a single letter and a rating range. Change the letter.
