NOTICE: Short service outage on Monday morning

We have received notice from our host that will be offline
for (probably) some or (perhaps) all of the 6 hours between
1:00 AM and 7:00 AM EST on Monday, Nov 19. (7:00 AM and 1:00 PM CET).

Please plan accordingly.

New feature: Match sequencing

For spectators joining a table, or for players themselves for that matter, it is no longer necessary to ask "Is this the first game?" or similar questions.

That information will be displayed as part of the the game description on the scoreboard and the upper corner of the game screen as players play a sequence of games.

The count resets if they go to a new table, or the player mix changes.
