Playing Turn-based Games
Playing turn-based games is a great alternative to playing live games.
Some players prefer to play these games for a variety of reasons. Here are a few
reasons I like turn-based games.
- You can choose to play whenever you like, if you only have a few minutes a day
you can log in and see what games are ready for you to make a move.
- You can play a very good game, since you and your opponent have lots of time
to analyze each move (if you want!)
- You can play players who are in different time zones easier. If you and your
opponent are on opposite sides of the globe, it can be difficult to find a good
time for both of you to get on and play a live game.
You can start a turn-based game in a few different ways:
Rated turn-based games at Pente.org have one big difference from live games. Rated turn-based
games must be played in a "set" of 2 games, one game you play as player 1, and one game you
play as player 2. In order for you to "win" you must win both games. If you and your
opponent each win one game the set is a draw and no rating change is made.
- Click "Waiting Games" from the main page to see games that other players have
posted, click the Game name and then click "Accept".
- Create a new game by clicking "Play Turn-based" from the main
page, then "Start a new game". You can then invite a specific player or choose
to post your game to the Waiting games area for anyone to accept.
- Invite a specific player to a game from that players profile
