Thanks for the great job !
Wish you could authorize to play from the same place since with COVID-19 we are stuck and don’t have money to pay for premium.

Good luck. I specifically got a premium account to provide some financial support, and I encourage some of these thousands of users who might not be paying for a premium account to do the same.
I did the same thing ! Its the least I can do after enjoying this place for 3 or so years

Thanks, new user from Italy here. Thank you for what you're doing for us, getting a Premium account was the minimum to thank you.
To all the former player base, sorry for creating a bottleneck in the site's service. Please bear with us newcomers while we learn the ropes and the situation becomes more stable. :)

UPDATE:

Since 2 days we are now able to handle 15.000 players at peak hours (it was 6.000 players one week ago, and 9.000 players 3 days ago).

Today's maintenance goal is to be able to go higher than 15.000.

Thanks for your patience.

Note: we're sorry for all players who are playing outside peak hours, and who are suffering for very frequent maintenances these days. This is very unusual an temporary, but these days we have to perform a lot of heavy maintenance operation to increase service capacity and we cannot do it at peak hours.

You are providing a great service at this time. I've encouraged others to get premium. It's such a good price for the year you easily get your money's worth!

I am already a Premium Member.
Is there a way I can make an additional donation to say 'Thanks' for all that you do?

Thanks for your support! :)

We don't have a donation system and our focus is not on this at the moment as you can imagine BUT a friend remarked that there is the possibility to offer a premium account to someone (last link on the premium page). So she offered one premium year to a friend of hers.

You can definitely do that if you want, in addition to helping us you'll make someone happy :D

Thank you so much for your efforts! This is a great resource for those of us that love board games. I joined a few years ago so I could continue to play games with my nephew who moved to Finland. Much thanks and Congatulations on increasing the server capacity so greatly in such a short amount of time.
