I’m one of those players that resign if it’s clear I can’t win anymore. But a lot of players don’t. They just let me click through all the chains. This isn’t really helping against RSI ;-)
So why do people play on until the end? Are they hoping for a last mistake? Or is resigning considered rude? Or are they unaware of the fact that they’ve already lost?
In Dots and some other games, like Othello, it can be interesting to see the score, not just who wins or loses. That’s why I often don’t resign before the end in those games (unless it is clear long before that I am being thrashed). Also, in Dots one might want to “punish” the winner by forcing him to take lots of boxes in the end. ;-)
