This was a newish player; perhaps he didn't understand the etiquette. The second example, though, was with an experienced player who, once our game started to go badly, wanted to agree to quit; since I think it's more honorable to play the game out, I tried to argue we should keep going — and, again, once I was in time trouble, he kicked me out. Certainly he knew that I wasn't abandoning the game or anything, and presumably he knew the reputation hit this would cause me — but he ruthlessly did it anyway.
Now I quite understand that timely play is a virtue, and doubtless I deserve some censure for the fact that I let my time become negative; but looking at my reputation it states that I irresponsibly QUIT two recent games, which is simply not the case.
So here are my questions—
1) Shouldn't this wording be more accurate? (I did not quit.)
2) Hanabi is a cooperative game, and its incentives should encourage good-faith cooperation. But isn't playing 'gotcha' with the timer is the opposite of that?
3) Similarly, what should one do once in time trouble — play hastily, thus hurting EVERYBODY (it's a cooperative game, remember), or play carefully, thus putting ourselves at risk of a ruthless every-man-for-himselfer? It's a prisoner's dilemma.
