XG Semantics User-interface Issues

Even though "Unlimited play" is a perfectly reasonable choice, and also has the advantage of being close to "Unlimited game," terminology that existing users of XG already understand, I think "Individual games" is better. My reason is to simplify the user interface for beginners.

Those who are new to backgammon or XG, should have no problem figuring out a choice between "Individual games" and "Match play." Many, however, will not have a clue what "Unlimited play" means.

Considering that there were a few knowledgable players in this thread who did not fully understand the meaning of "unlimited," you can appreciate that it will completely baffle many beginners.
