Stalling Players

 

 

 

 

 

 

Players are stalling when they do not take their turn within a reasonable time. Multiplayer games on MSN Games include features to help deal with stalling players.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Send a Reminder

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If a player seems to be stalling, first use Chat to remind them it is their turn.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Forfeit and Removal for Stalling Players

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If a player ignores a reminder and continues to stall, they may be removed from the game or forfeit turns or games. Forfeit and removal options vary between multiplayer games.

1. Click Player Info, select the Stalling Player. Under Remove Player from the Game? select Yes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. The Stalling Player then has a limited time in which to play. If the Stalling Player fails to take their turn within that time, they will be removed from the game and replaced by a Computer Player.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Forfeit Turn

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If the Stalling Player does not take their turn before the timer expires, they forfeit their turn.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Forfeit Game – Autoplay

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Each player has a limited time in which to take their turn. If the Player stalls and the timer runs out, a card will be automatically played for them. If a Player stalls three times in a game, the player will forfeit the game.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Forfeit Game - Timer

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If the Stalling Player does not take their turn before the timer expires, they forfeit the game. You may choose to either wait for the timer to run out to take a win, or quit the game and take a loss.
