So I've been playing Stacko some.. I find it really kinda annoying when, having won the 1st round, and set it up so I ahve enough point to have no chance of losing the game in round 2, the darn thing drags on for another 8-10 turns... is there some sort of etiquette/feature or something where one can let your opponent know the game is over?

Alternatively, if runs-as-bonus-points were added, it wouldn't be an issue.

I'd like a way to avoid this too. It's frustrating on both sides. I don't want to continue playing if I have no hope of winning.

My preferred option is simply that the game ends as soon as one player has an unbeatable score.

In my opinion, I think two rounds is much too short for this game. I think a game should be four, six, or even eight rounds.

Unless later rounds are worth double or triple points, you could have entire rounds that are meaningless.

Back to the original question, can we get a response as to why the game does not end when one player clearly has enough points that they have won? Also, just out of curiosity i find a lot of opponents continue to play the 2nd round even if they go into it with a score of 5 from the first round.. why?? lol it just wastes both players times & takes so long to end. Plse considering resigning if you have a score of 5 after the first round Laughing Laughing

It's intentional. We also do not do this with other games.
