I'm rather new here on SBW and I would like to know, what means the note "fast player only"?
It's clear, that everyone means with it a different time interval. But approximately, which average time is meant?
Thanks in advance for your answers and please excuses my bad English.

Nice Dice

You are right that everyone has a different interpretation, which is why I will ask for one turn a day, rather than "fast play".

I'd say that "fast play" means that you always take your turn within 24 hours.

I don't know how it got there in the first place. There is a limit on the size, he is welcome to upload a more reasonable sized version.

I'd say that making your move once a day is not fast play, it's really just normal. If a game says fast play, I'd be expecting players who make their moves 2-3 times a day at least.

Which is why it's better to state 2-3 moves a day, if that's what you want Smile
Other people might want the game completed in the same day.

Or perhaps, it doesn't matter how long you take between moves, so long as when you take your turn, you move the mouse really quickly?

I really like your last explanation Laughing. Perhaps that's why some people enjoy playing with fast players: they're more likely to click on the wrong option.

Some times asking for moves/day may not be enough. I make most of my turns at night, so I can make many turns in a day, as long as the game progresses in those hours. I'm probably seen by the Europeans as a slow player, but for those folks on the West of USA and Canada I'd be seen as a fast player.
