Player has stopped entering the moves. What should I do?

      For a great viewing experience, its important that all moves are accurately entered and the results updated in each game. Once the game is over, you can continue entering the moves on the player's device. Or alternatively, you can set the result in the Player's device and later add the moves from the Org Device - Manage Games screen (see images above)
