      I Love the new timer but theres a flaw. if you join a game and the mover with the 1st move never moves, theyre never timed out. twice sat there for several minutes and , out of frustration, i exited out…i was penalized. appreciate your site. thanks

      Hi,
      This is done on purpose, the timer is there mainly to give the quickest player some bunus points in case of draw (which happens a lot in Tic-Tac-Toe). The thing is that in a case of draw, there’s 9 moves in total and it’s not an even number. So, if I start the time once the game starts, the first player would be penalized because he has to do 5 moves against 4 moves of the opponent. This is the reason why.
      Now, the player that don’t play for 40 seconds are automatically kicked out and you get the ELO points as a victory.
      I hope this helps,

      You’re totally right, I’ve never tested this use case. This is very valuable feedback thanks for reporting it.

      I’ll improve this ASAP and will let you know.
