Hi Kotoba Ignore whatever I said for now about settings.In the previous version of this game there is a way to change and personalize settings. I assumed it would be the same way here but unless it is hiding somewhere I do not see it. Just enjoy the games. Sorry, my mistake
The Handicap Game Facility would only be appropriate when the two players know each other and hence their relative strengths. It would be particularly useful for helping keen players to introduce their children (or indeed their own parents!) to the game.
Thought I would relate the events tonight when I decided to play the bots not just match. Assumed I would just start playing once I invited. Did not work that way. Earlier, I did not go through all the set up rules to get to the start of the game. Tonight, when I got thru all the gobbedly gook, and got to the match board the bots did not respond. So my apologies Algor should have known it would not be so simple.
