I've found the boardgaming-online and I am eager to try it. TTA is one of my favorite games. I own a copy but lack of time means I seldom have the chance to play it.

I checked the site's forum but it doesn't seem to have lots of activity nor was the FAQ there very useful. So these are my questions:

- Is it possible to play games asynch at boardgaming-online?
- How do I signal to other potential players that I can only play asynch? I really don't want to ruin the game for people who want to play live.
- Does "private" games mean that you can only join by invitation?

Sorry if these questions have been asked before or if this is not the appropriate place to ask.

When joining a game, don't join the ones called "live something". It's not unusual to just play 1 or 2 moves a day. When creating a game, call it "not live something".

Yes, with password.

Why for this life there's no man smart enough, life's too short for learning every trick and bluff.

You can describe conditions for the game you create. I think most people assume the game will be async unless you say otherwise, but it won't hurt to mention it.
Private does what it says - only players who know the password can join. You can also choose opponents on game creation (i.e., invite specific players).
