What is the "Abort" button for on the playing screen ?

This button enables one to offer, or accept the cancellation of a game.

A cancelled game doesn't count for players ratings.

How to accept a draw offer ?

During a game you can receive or send draw offers. You can send an offer, or accept one, by clicking on "Draw"

A message under the board indicates when your opponent has offerred a draw.

How to play with a friend ?

In the "Player" menu, click on "Choose my opponent". Seek the pseudo of your friend in the list and click on "Challenge".

This other player could accept your proposition by going to the same menu and clicking on "Offers received".

How to find an opponent ?

You can be allocated an opponent automatically, or choose manually. The following options can be found in the "Play" menu.



- Automatic choice of an opponent:
Click on "find me an opponent". The game will begin once the first player who fits your criteria becomes available.

- Manual choice of an opponent:
There are two options:
1. The "choose my opponent" button: a list appears of available players fitting your criteria.
You can offer to play with one or several players. As soon as one of these players accepts your proposition, the game immediately begins.
2. The "Offers received" button: a list appears of players seeking opponents (independant of your criteria). Once you accept an offer the game begins immediately.

I sometimes get disconnected from the play-zone. What are the possible reasons?

Access to the play-zone requires a continuous connection. If you are connected via cellular, check that the quality of the reception is acceptable. Similarly if you are connected by wifi.
