Originally posted by mwmillerBy the time you have done the above someone else has taken the invite.
People really do need to develop a few standard good habits before accepting an open invite. Such as:
-See if the game is rated or not.
-Check the time-out and time bank settings.
-Read the profile of the person offering the open invite. There might be some important information.

Just my opinion,

0 timebank games are so quick and funny to play..........

A timeout is a timeout.period.

Originally posted by flexmorePeople who want to play 1/0 games generally want to finish the same day. Let 'em have their fun..
your words make some sense:
but surely 1/0 can not be preferable to 1/3 to anyone except a fool, a newbie or an abuser.
if they are a fool then let us help them out.
if they are a newbie then let us help them through,
if they are an abuser then let us cut them out.
