I like to connect with other players and play games on computer, especially dominoes. I can’t host a game or join others. Other player say it might have something to do with my router and the ports, etc. where you have to have IP numbers. I have IP number but still can’t join games

    Apart from what others have to say, do check that your game has the same version as the rest of the players.

    Might be an internet connection issue, or you have outdated games.
