Really slow games

I am a 8 kyu player, but now with my family and all the work on Discourse I am finding it really hard to set time for a game.

I remember back in the day there was an email Go thing, where you can just play a move a day. Does something like this still exist?

Are there any other options out there for people who are really time poor but would still like to play a 19x19 game?


It’s called correspondence. Just set the game speed to that and adjust the time settings according to your needs.

In fact, that’s our number one type of game here at OGS :slight_smile: You can have several games going at once too and just make your moves when you have time kind of thing. We’ll email you when you have a move to make :slight_smile:

I’m a little slow I didn’t catch this first pass - Thanks for your work on Discourse by the way, we’ve really loved it here at OGS!

And welcome to OGS! I encourage you to make some open challenges with the time controls you want, they usually get picked up pretty quickly these days :slight_smile:
