1. How can I join the online games?

To join the online games one has to log in first. Choose the option Log In in the main menu on the left hand side below the header Online Games. In the next screen one has to fill in Name and Password. If you have not already got a name and password, please press 'Nieuwe loginnaam aanmelden'. At the next screen you can enter your name. This may be your real name, but of course you can also make up a name.
Here your e-mail address is required as well. We use the e-mail address to send you your password and a notification if it is your turn (one can put that option off on your user profile) or when the game has finished.

Now you can log in (press button login) with your name and the password Cycloop has sent you. The next screen is the main screen of online games. On the left of the screen you see some additional menu options to change your user profile. There you can change your password, the download speed and so on.

To play a game one chooses either New game to open a game or one enters one of the already open games mentioned above the Current Games by pressing <player x>, where x determines the sequence of play. In that case the open game moves from Open Games to Current Games.

In all current games where your name and the number of the game are coloured white it is your move. To do your move you press the number of the game and the gameboard opens. On the top right you can find the rules of the game by pressing a white . To lay track, just click on the line on the grid where you want to lay your track.

Sometimes you find an open game with players in all positions. In that case one of the names is coloured orange. This player has not made a move in 28 days. If that is the case this player is replaced if the other players kick him out by pressing. The replacement can decide for him or herself whether he or she wants to let the results count for his or her own ranking or for the ranking of the replaced player.
