after we surrender or are out, it would be great if the games can get off our list so we can join some new games instead of wait till they are over.

But why would I want to encourage early surrendering? It makes the game less fun for the other players.

your not encouraging it, it is just annoying when you lose first in a game and you cant start another game until a week later when everyone finishes.

Ohh...that's a thought! Say you lost first in the game, without surrendering, and now you're waiting for the game to be finished. Could that not be part of the 5 game limit?

I dunno... I totally disagree with the surrender thing. People would just be surrendering out of games left and right. Heck, I would. I see some possibility with the first-out thing, although then you might see some funny races with people just stretching themselves out all thin in the first turn in a rush to be the first eliminated. Heck, I'd do it.

I think you should just take the surrender option out completly I hate it when someone I'm about to take over surrenders and then I don't get their cards. You should always fight till someone eliminates you it's the honorable thing to do.

I am beginning to think the same thing i.e. get rid of surrender. People surrender too early. Surrender also complicates another problem I am facing - how to not give points for the deadbeats in your game.

Surrender is useful for deadbeats to signal "don't wait for me", so if we get rid of surrender it should be coupled with a quicker auto-kick (now we have to wait 96 hours to get rid of deadbeats)

Anybody have an arguement why surrender is necessary :?:

There is one advantage to surrender, the fact that in a game w/ only two players, if you're obviously going to lose, there's no real point in fighting on. Still, given all the reasons for getting rid of surrendering, I think it might be a good idea. Maybe a poll...
