When I play at home, I sometimes get a little tired. Is there such thing as time outs? If there is, how does it work?

Hi Michael,

There are timeouts.  Both players get one timeout per match.  The timeout lasts for 1 minute.

The player that calls the timeout can end the timeout any time during the 1 minute and then the other player has to return to play as well.

So, if it was during my timeout, and I ended it. No matter what they are doing, my opponent has to continue playing.

Is that how it works?

Yes that is right.  They need to come straight back to the table and continue.
