I apologize, as I am sure this has been asked before, but I don't know how to scan these questions like I do for the games sections.

I have started several multi-player games of Ticket to Ride Pocket and Tigris and Euphrates on my iPhone and the games have appeared in Game Center. Every game I have started or joined ends up being terminated at some point in the future. At first I thought maybe the game had to be completed in one sitting as after being away from the phone awhile the games had disappeared. Then I thought maybe others were cancelling the games from their end.

Yesterday everything seemed to be going great as I would make a move every few hours and the games were not being cancelled or timed out. Unfortunately, this morning - all the games are again missing.

Just curious if these games and Game Center should work similar to Yucata (or Words With Friends for that matter) where the games are stored and played at your leisure. Not very useful otherwise. Any insight would be appreciated.

I wonder if it is like Ascension that has a game clock on it for forfeiture. I've yet to play them so I'm not sure if they are listed on the interface. At least with Words with Friends its a couple of days of idle. A few hours or overnight does not sound right for Gamecenter.

I'm going to bur T2R tonight and can see how it reacts to me.

I've not had any such problem with TTR Pocket. Send me your game center ID and I'll try it out with you to be sure.

T&E has a feature where your opponent can delete the game if you haven't moved for 72 hours.

But I think your issues is just that Game Center is flaking out on you. Try power-cycling your phone.

Re: iPhone Game Center Question - Leaving and Coming Back to Games
Think I have it figured out now. Either user error on my part (most likely) or people were quitting games and I didn't realize it. Have managed to complete a few games of TTP and T&E. I resisted the iPhone for a long time, but am loving it. Now I don't have to read a book or speak with anyone ever again!
