# Continuing or creating again timed out games...

• #1

I mean:

A friend of mine and I have been playing an exciting game for a couple of weeks. For some reason -out of discussion :-) - he couldn't move in time so, the game timed out.

Is there any way to continue the game despite it's gone out of time?

Is there any way to create a new game starting with the same distribution of pieces than the timed out game?

I'll appreciate your help...

Thank you!

No. But for the future, you could change your settings so that you don't AUTOMATICALLY claim a win after a timeout. (This would apply to ALL your games though).

No, other than playing through the game from the start. If you both use Conditional Moves, you could reach the previous halting point fairly quickly.
