Help: Play Game  

[Help Contents]

This page is where you play a game! The game is shown in the center of the page. To see help specific to the game you're playing, click the "[Rules/Instructions]" link at the top of the page. That's where you'll find the most useful information about the game itself. This help page gives general information about the Play Game page.

Above the game board, there are three links (four if it's a tournament game):

  • [Rules/Instructions]
    Click this link for game rules, how to play the game here at Pocket-Monkey, etc.

    Clicking this link takes you to the next game on your Current Games page where it's your turn, or takes you back to the Current Games page if there aren't any more.
  • (Tournament Link)
    If the game you're looking at is in a tournament, a link to the tournament is shown above the game board.
