It would be good to have an option where a player can "forfeit". A polite way of allowing the other player to win acknowledging they would have without just leaving a game. I was just in a game, someone left early on, and just me and them. They on 13 points (14 point game) me 6 or 8. No chance.
Good idea overall but I feel it could be abused to get more karma/elo or whatever fast.
Get 3 friends, start a game, friends forfeit. Repeat x100.
I feel it is still better if the game is properly finished. If the game is at a point where forfeiting seems feasible, you can just make a few fast rolls and let the other player win in the next 1-2 rounds.
I have played many games where the luck turned and the player with 8 points didn't get any points while the other players got from 3 points to 7. Multiple 7s in a row, number blocked at the right time, monopoly stealing all the important resources etc. Never give up.
Yeah, but it's just the reality of life. Some won't use it for the reason u mentioned, others will. Better people having a "polite" option to finish a game if for whatever reason they want to.
