# Re: [Computer-go] Frisbee Go Simulation

```> Would the game end after two unintentional passes?

Good point. In principle I would say so.
To avoid problems with final counting, after 2 passes the game should
be completed in traditional mode (without Frisbee simulation elements).```
```
One might say that such a final should be executed only after
4 (unintentional) passes but I see the problem when playing
on a "normal" server.
