Rewinding the Game?

Hi there and sorry in advance if this isn't the right place to post my question.

In a running game among friends (#86677), four of the seven players missed their turn for different reasons (deadline was half an hour ago). This is affecting the outcome greatly and we would like to undo that last turn. Is there any way to do this on this site? E. g. could an admin reset the game for us to, say, five hours ago?

Thanks,
Bonifratz

I do not believe this is possible.

I'm afraid the only way to unwind a game is for me to manually unexecute it which means zapping a load of databases and crossing my fingers in the hope that nothing has been forgotten. Basically, we hardly ever do it; the only times I do try is when a system problem has screwed the game up. Sorry to sound unhelpful, but if your friends are missing turns then to be frank it will probably happen again, particularly if they think they can just ask for the game to be unwound :(

Having said that, if it was for example a Build phase and some players just couldn't get their builds in, or if it was a Retreat phase and some units did not have retreat orders, I might be able to do something. But if it was an orders phase there is no chance.

Alright, thanks a lot for the answers. I completely understand. We might undo the moves "manually" - still discussing it.

Thanks and happy stabbing
