Is it bad manners to resign? [Aug. 23rd, 2007|05:17 pm]

I've been playing Scrabulous (requires facebook login; it's a Scrabble® clone) a fair bit today. I've just offered a table to random passers-by, and found myself in a game with someone I don't know.

We've had six moves each, the score is 84 to 295, and he's resigned. I'm quite disappointed.

The last two words played were "EXIT" (22) and "BAbYISH" (108).

Ah well.

See my comment to davidcook, above, where my expectations arise from my background.

wow, thats serious stuff. I can understand that situation, but a game online for the fun of it, I revert back to my default response.

You need to look for an online Scrabble site that uses match play scoring systems. I'm sure there must be one.
