I've played a few online games where I get a message saying the game was forfeited because of time running out. I don't think I take too long, 20-30 seconds at the most per turn when there are a lot of cards to look over. WTF??? Anyone else have this happen to them? What am I doing wrong or is this a bug?

The best way to handle this is to pick games with longer periods of time. Playing a game with 7 Days as the time limit means each of you has 168 hours of time to play your side of the game.

The key here is that your turn starts when the other person finishes their turn, not when you start to play your turn. If you play once a day and your opponent plays 1 hour after you, their clock loses one hour and yours loses the other 23 when you don't play until the next day.

In short, play the longer games unless you want a quick game to sit down and play start to finish. For that, a 10-minute game gives that to each side, so it will last less than 20 minutes.

OK, thanks! Wish they could bump it up to 15 minutes. 10 seems a little short based on how many were forfeited. Especially playing with all exp.

When you create a game you can set a longer time limit.

Ooh a little higher, now a bit to the left, a little more, a little more, just a bit more. Oooh yes, that's the spot!

Yep. I always create 28 day games, just in case...
