Many of you know that I have a great distaste for elaborate rules. I prefer simplicity with an expectation that sportsmanship and reasonableness will guide us to the right choice when a gray area is encountered. However, I also realize that when players are making a significant commitment to play, it is appropriate to clearly outline rules that will make the process clear and help prevent unfair advantages.
Check out the updated rules listed on the Monthly Tournament and Daily Challenge tabs. Hot topics:
- Who should move first?
- How long do I wait before marking a “No-Show”?
- What if the other player declines my opening move (and it was a bingo)?
- What happens if multiple players go undefeated in the Daily Challenge?
Also, keep in mind that there are important differences between the Daily Challenge and Monthly Tournament, with regard to playing format and rules. So, I encourage you to do a little homework now, as it might spare you some frustration later.
