Elliot61 and I just had a game with 129 moves. Anyone know what the record is?
The highest number of moves i've seen was a game between Kleese and Lieven with 185 moves. ««
lol…For 185 moves, they only used 17 words.
Two months, just to do the bidding (the #219603 game). I try to avoid playing against people who drag the bidding that long.
Abigail – You and I had a game that reached 171 moves last month. Most of it was bidding, but I don't recall that the bidding took that long. I think we'd both spotted the same 162 point opening word, and set our autobid limits to about the same limits.
Spoke too soon! Chris ran out of time and lost on default before the game reached 200 moves. Still, I think it is a record.
Tom, I don't mind if the bidding takes 150 moves or more. I do mind when it takes a month or two before the bidding ends. With autobidding, 150 moves can be done in seconds. What I'm referring to is certain people (you know who you are), who game after game wait days before making the first bid, and then one bid every day and a half, dragging out the bidding for weeks.
