1) Why do I get 3 more cards even though my last card is a wild card or a color joker?
You can win the game with the wild card or a color joker as a last card. However, you must say “LAST CARD” by clicking on the button in the right lower corner immediately after playing your second to last card. Without clicking on this button with your last card on hand, the system will automatically add 3 cards to your hand.
2) How can I chat with the other players? This feature is currently broken and we are working on correcting it as quickly as possible.
To chat with other players you can click “CHAT” located on top of your picture which is shown on the game board. Please make sure to click the “Chat On” button which is located in the upper right hand side of the game board next to the “Chat history” button. You will only be able to chat while you are playing a game.
3) Is it possible to make the chat pop-up stay on longer than 10 seconds so I can catch up?
No it is not possible to make the chat stay on longer. You can always click the “Chat history” button to view the chat history. This button is located on the upper right hand side.
