There should be a quicker game time than 24 hours but more than 5 minutes.

10, and 12 hr moves may be fine, but with the others, thered be too many missed turns because people sleep.

Ya, I have a 15 hour period where I'm not on the computer.

3 or 6 is retarted. Do you not sleep? You sleep for 9 hours and all of a sudden you dead beat?

i would never consider anything other than 24h or 5 mins, any in between would literally take a whole day and would probably lead to at least half the players deadbeating.........

definately think this should never be done.

anything less than 24 hours and more than 10 mins is just not good.

first off, like others have said for the 3h/6h/12h/etc when would you sleep? i leave home at 6:45 am and dont get back home until 6:30 pm unless i have a meet then i get home after 10 pm.

also wouldnt you hate it if a player decides that because he or she is losing that they will wait out and play their turns at the very last moment, hoping that you leave so they can get you to deadbeat? seriously, i aint gonna sit at the monitor for even 10 mins refreshing and pulling hair outta my head

i have mixed feeling about saying 10 mins even, 5 mins is a good amount for speed games since you cant really drag it out whereas with 10 mins you can drag out just 6 turns into over an hour easily (10mins x 6turns + opponents turns or just 10x6 for freestyle)

im sorry theres just so many holes in this
