Bad players

First off, I would like to say, I love this game around the site that you have provided. Thank you very much. On another note, there are players who are abusing The system. If they feel they can’t win the game. They will just let it go for the amount of move time. Vern just before their time runs out, some of them within minutes. They will make a move and start over again with one move. My suggestion is to cut the wait time to 36 hr. The 4 or 5 days is too long. If they can’t play in this amount of time, then they should not play. Thank you.

I can play my friend (developer nerds) who have windows phone

As title states, I can play my Windows phone friends since there's a version for them too. Besides that, it's a nice, simple app. Nothing flashy but it's not needed.

I don't mind the ad at the bottom. They aren't charging a dime so maybe you'll see something of interest and make these people a few bucks.

Nice chess app.

Wait times Ridiculous

This apps competitive ranking system is awesome and so is the ability to play with friends. The only big downside is the 5day move duration as people tend to abuse this feature. You'll have a nicely paced match with someone when all of a sudden they make a mistake and stop playing for 5days only to make a last minute move and try to wear you down like a troll. Move duration should be 24-36hrs max
