Re: Giving out to players who "don't know the tactics"

Honestly, I can't stand to play Hanabi here. It's as you say: There is a specific, optimized, tactic of cluing that all the players here expect all the other players here to use, and if you are not doing it, you're not doing it right. I think playing this way... you might as well just play by yourse...

Re: Automatic post to game forum when announcement made to game player group.

Or maybe those group posts could show up in a more obvious place? like summaries on the 'games you are currently playing page'? or maybe show the latest post under each game alongside the 'how to play' and rankings tabs? I don't know how typical we are, but, like eoc, I never visit that main page. I...

Re: Disable option to abandon games in Hanabi or other coop games

Maybe a % of game complete rule? Like in Hanabi, if they abandon after, say, 50% of the game is complete, that counts as a loss?

Although, that might encourage people to quit at 49% if it doesn't look like it's going well... It's a pickle.

Re: We need a "No second place mode" please

That's a personal opinion about how people do and should play games, though, not a universal truth. I think in most natural boardgame situations (ones without ELO, like at a real table with friends) there will be some people willing to take the big risk that might win or lose, and some who would rat...

Re: Disable option to abandon games in Hanabi or other coop games

I agree. a collective abandon of a co-operative game should count as a loss. It should not count as a 'quit', but it should essentially be logged as a forfeit for everyone involved.

Re: Notification if user is actively at your turn based game

Also, the color of their status icon is an indicator. If it's grey , they are offline. If it's green , they are at this table right now. If it's cyan , they are online, but not at this table. I'm not sure how accurate it is, or how often it updates, though. Green just means they are online, not nec...

Re: Remember what chat has been read

Agreed. I also usually just don't chat on turn-based tables because I don't want to create the pop-ups every turn.

It may have been mentioned in the announcement for the expansion?

Re: Playing with original card set only?

This game will automatically set up depending on player number. If you have 2-4 players, you get the original cards only. If you have 5-8 players, you get the expansion also.
