2) WHAT IS BOITEAJEUX?
Boiteajeux is a free online games portal. You only need a valid email to get an account.
3) HOW DOES IT WORK?
After you register for an account, you will be able to join games in the waiting room, start new games, and of course play games! The games are played by turns. You take your turn in a game as soon as the other players have finished their turns.
4) HOW TO PLAY?
When you are online, you can start new games by clicking on the section on the left, join games that are about to start, and ask questions about games. For each new game, you can specify a game's name and invite guests. Invitations allow you to play with known players. Guests have 7 days to join in the game; otherwise, the game will become open for anyone to join.
5) How Do Deaf Tournament Play?
DDeaf players will meet weekly in a specific game room announced in the Tournament Scheduled box.
1) DBGC TOURNAMENT PLAYERS?
Only players who are members of DBGC can be in the tournament. Must be 18 years or older.
2) 15 MINUTES TIME SLOT
Every player must be present on Boiteajeux 15 minutes prior the starting time. If you didn't get in on time, the game will start without you. Be on time!
3) TOURNAMENT LOBBY AND CHAT ROOM
The "Lobby" is the web page on which the games are scheduled; i.e., the page with the chat room and list of players. When the tournament begins, dialogue is shown to indicate that the tournament is starting. Anyone who is not in the Lobby when this dialogue appears is disqualified and will lose 100 ELO points.

4) NO WAITING TIME IN TOURNAMENT TABLE
Unlike regular tables where it is necessary for everybody to open the game window to start, there is no such thing in tournaments. Tournament tables start 20 seconds after the "Start Game" button appears.
5) IF YOU LOST - YOUR POINT REMAIN THE SAME
This means that your rank would not change if you win or lose. Read more about ELO points HERE.
