Oh, turn 7! Maybe it lasts until turn 12 then. I thought it made sense to keep it available for a fair while, but eventually take it away so that some crazed admin didn't "unstart" a game on turn 40.

I'll keep an eye on the new game I started last night and let you know when the option disappears (or this game of course, depending on which one goes quickest)

And Un-starting a game on turn 50 in a rage fit has to be the new "in" thing I reckon as rage quitting simply because you were attacked is just so last season

Time itself writhes like a serpent, in cunning mimicry of the horrific tortures you will all endure.

Boy, what a mess. But very well handled Dimaz. (And Calahan for a record-speed map-conversion.)

I did strangely (besides a number of rollback notifications and the expected new turn 1) get an email from the Llamaserver with the subject line: "Andalusian sun, Turn 5 received...", in the email itself it told me: "Hello! Please find the attached turn file - Hinnom turn 71 for the game cyberrand4." While in effect the mail itself did not contain any attachment at all.

As I said, I did get a correct turn 1, so I suppose I can just ignore it, but thought I'd mention the weird behaviour anyway.

Weird... Ossa himself mentioned no-diplomacy when signing up, so it wasn't even that he didn't read the OP and knew from the start. The mind boggles...

@ All

I forgot to mention that for the revised map, I re-connected 44-28 (like on the original Riverlands map). Since one of the main reasons I removed it for the first map was to help with fitting the starts in. But with one less Land nation in the game for the re-start, this was no longer necessary.

Thought I'd mention it just in case (and because I mentioned removing it in my previous posts about the map, so want to be clear that the connection had been put back)

Just to speak up for myself here:
Sorry for causing this mess again.

I actually truly did forget about the specific rules while doing my term. I'm a bit stressed in RL (job + 10w old daughter) right now and obviously I do not pay enough attention to the specific rules of the game I'm playing.

This not only happened here, but also in another game which I played for 100+ turns now

So, sorry again for this mess, and if I happen to enlist to a game with specific rules you are in - plz drop me a line that it might not be the best idea.

I'm, truly sorry again for your wasted time on these 5 turns.

Ossa, thank you for the explanation. I admit I was puzzled, to say the least, by all this.

You should probably make a habit of writing down any specific game rules on a note or something, or just stay clear of games with house rules.

Good luck on your second job as a father, it's plenty and stressful but well worth it
