This game was in my hands until...................................................... My mouse slippedĀ

I was playing a game against a lower rated player and my mouse clearly dropped the move in the wrong square. I immediately told the player by chat and he made a move that allowed me to position the piece in the correct square.

Now that was a real gentleman. The game proceeded and I won the game. It was a group match and we became friends! . . .

Well the guy I was playing just said "too bad."

That's un-sportsman like.

I had a similar experience. I wasn't winning, but mouse slipped my bishop. Told him that was a mouse slip. He didn't take my bishop and played a different move. I played the actual move I was going to play last turn. Still I lost. But still, you'd rarely see a person like that.

Even if I knew it wasn't a mouse slip I would still let them move back, because cheaters still never win.

Paraguay once declared war on Brazil and Argentina at the same time. That makes your blunder look very mild by comparisonĀ

Mouse slips are tricky. In general I never ask for a take back, and almost never give them if the opponent asks. The only exception is on an extremely obvious mouse slip. If it's clear that the opponent would never, ever make that move, I'will give a take back, But it has to be really obvious, otherwise it's touch-move and too bad
