Thanks for the suggestion. Tried it, didn't work. As soon as I get that error message it's curtains for me, no matter what I do. Think I'll have to play elsewhere to spare my opponents the frustration of games terminated in the middle. It was fun while it lasted.

Unfortunately hitting refresh gets me the "Match terminated or cancelled" message every time. It's better for me to confirm/troubleshoot my internet connection and hope the game recognizes I'm still here. On Board Game Arena players are temporarily disconnected and rejoin the game all the time. I don't know why the time out margins are so harsh here. It's a great site in other ways.

Every time I've hit refresh I've gotten the "Match terminated" message, so maybe I'm not hitting it fast enough. Thanks for the tip, Stuart! Although with Cartographers that connection light is waaay down the screen. You'd have to do some serious scrolling to keep an eye on it.

Were you getting a disconnect error message? Unfortunately when there's a problem with the internet connection it can look like your opponent's clock is running out when you are the one disconnected, or there's a server error or something. It has happened to me, and watching that clock run down when I know I am connected but the game has probably already timed me out is depressing.

This happened to me with a player who skipped so far past the starting card they left me almost the entire circle. I couldn't think of what to say and still be polite. I didn't want to come across as condescending/sarcastic/gloating/insulting to someone who was probably just new to the game. Tone is so important.
