This would be great, but failure to let us know caused my 1 minute speed game to freeze up. I couldn't access it, and lost accordingly.

I don't think you're in the target demographic :)

My understanding is that it's more of a way to let people play some quick games on simple maps. So new users will be more interested in this than us seasoned vets :D

OK, I don't know what's going on. But I did NOT start this game. I didn't even know it was going until I logged into CC and noticed it was up. No one has hijacked my account.

Game 13360871

Coupled with THIS game, these updates are annoying.

Game 13360847 —> I couldn't access my turns on this game, and it was the same time as these updates getting rolled out.

Yep... they're all over the place. Looks like it's going to be a nightmare to fix over the next few days.

here's another: Game 13153181

EDIT: Also, it's screwing the points all up. :shock:

sassbot has played 9 and won 1.
I wonder who that sap was? :lol:
On a serious note, the bot was clueless. No concept of taking/breaking bonuses. Left singles everywhere and generally had no idea what it was doing
