|How do I choose the time limit per move for a game?
You can only choose time limits per move for non-tournament games. Tournament game time limits are set by the type of tournament. Information on tournaments is here.
In non-tournament games, players choose the time limit per move before the game starts. The options for time limits are, in numbers of days: 3, 7, 14, 21, 30, and 45. Remember that there are no holidays or weekends from non-tournament time limits, so please take these into account when choosing a time limit. Be sure you only agree to play games that will give you enough time to make each move. ItsYourTurn.com will not restore non-tournaments games that end because somebody did not make a move on time.
There are several different ways that you can begin a game. Here is how the time limit is chosen for each:
- Start Game: If you click 'Start new game' in the left-side menu column, you will see a page where you choose the game you want to play. After you choose the game, on the next page you will see a picture of the game board. At the top of the game board is a drop-down menu where you will select the time limit per move.
- Invite User to Play: If you invite another player on ItsYourTurn.com to a game by clicking 'Invite user to play' in the left-side menu column, you will see a page where you choose the game. At the bottom of this page, you also choose the time limit per move.
- Waiting Room: If you go to the Waiting Room to join a game, you see the time limit chosen by the person who created that game. You should only join a game if you are sure you can make each move within the time limit.
- Receive Invitation: If you receive an invitation to play a game, the time limit will be specified in that message. Again, you should only accept an invitation to play a game if the time limit is agreeable to you. If it is not, you should decline the invitation. But you might want to send another invitation to the player who invited you, offering to play a game with a different time limit.
