My game timed out as well. I'm not sure how best to deal with the problem. On the one hand, I am sympathetic to time zone differences making it difficult to play, but on the other, the tournament needs to move fast enough that we have a winner in a reasonable amount of time.
I tend to think that we should stick to the rules established at the beginning, rather than change midstream. I know that disadvantages some folks, but any ruling is going to do that unless we remove the time limit entirely, which is not feasible.
How did folks in the league of leaguelets thread resolve this kind of issue?
