I am unable to find an opponent.

There could be times when you won't be able to find a match as not many players may be online. Keep trying and you will be matched with someone eventually. We have a strict 'no bot' policy, so you will never find a fake or non-human playing against you!

What happens if I get disconnected in the middle of the game?

If you get disconnected, we will try to reconnect you provided the app is active and the internet connectivity is good. However, in case we aren't able to get you back within a few seconds, the game would end and, your opponent would be declared as the winner.

What if I get a call while playing the game?

We recommend you cut the call instantly rather than answering it. If the app is kept minimised or in the background for more than 5 seconds, then in most likelyhood the game will end and your opponent will be declared as the winner.
