Yeah I find quite often later in games turns start to time out a bit. I figure its a syncing thing. Though maybe I may lose sync easier than say two people playing in North America. But yeah Ived landed in games (and really my game normally loads pretty quick) where the timers almost out. I kinda assume that is a lag on the game placement in the lobby.
Strange, because when I loaded in it was only a couple seconds before it gave me the timer. And Im sure you moved I tried to make my next move faster to make up from what seemed like it might have been too slow for you.
