Time seems fine, but I hope you won't do it every 1/2 hour because people get stuck in 1 tourney and you barely get enough for the next one. If I want to spend some time playing tourney, I don't want to feel rushed anyway. Personally, I don't prefer 50 points tourney since it's requires less skill. 1 set of bad cards and you are totally out in 2 sec.



CONSIDER THIS

Yes, I agree with Araleia. Times are fine, but gin is different than backgammon. There really isn't value to tournaments that are run on a 30-minute time frame. First they can only be done with 50 point matches and those are not enjoyable nor challenging skill-wise. Tourneys that are scheduled back to back need to be a minimum of 100 pts and on an hourly basis. Here in gin you can really change up the type of match with so many different options, but please avoid 50 pt. matches. Thanx for the efforts to please us DeDe.

One more observation

1/2 min per move is way way to long especially when some participants may abuse and drag their moves to 1/2 min when they are losing. (Believe me, when they gin, they will click within 1 sec, so I know it's not lagging!) Please admin, listen to our plea and change the time/move to 1/3 min, and you can see more people picking up tourneys again. Thank you!



Default max time per-move is now changed to 20 sec

Stated default times-per-move in newly created tournaments will now be in seconds with default being 20 sec-per-move

At GameColony.com you can play games of skill only -- play for free or play for $prizes!. According to the statutes of most states in the United States, gambling is defined as: "risking something of value upon the outcome of a contest of chance". (Also see No Gambling!).   The skill (as opposed to chance) is predominant in games of skill. Playing games of skill for $prizes, therefore, has nothing to do with gambling as it is not a contest of chance -- the more skillful player will win far more often. The chance element of a 'gamble' is either insignificant or missing. When players compete in tournaments or games of skill for $prizes -- it is "competitive entertainment" rather then "gambling". The more skilled winner will always win more matches, tournaments and $prizes.
