Forum rules
In addition to the general Forum Guidelines (see here: ... 30&t=15441), there are additional rules for posting in this forum.
1. Members should not refer directly to a specific situation in an active game. It is usually possible to provide an example of a similar situation elsewhere on the board.
2. It follows that links, images, game name and/or number should not be added to a post if the game is active.
3. Questions should only request rules be clarified and not request advice about how to resolve a situation.
4. When answering a question, members should restrict themselves to answering the question and not give advice on how to get around the situation.
Posts which break these rules will be subject to editing or removal; see here: ... 13&t=42845

I've 3 home centers, all unnocupied, but am being offered 4 builds, 1 of which obviously continually gets rejected. How can I progress my game?

You build fewer than 4 units now, then in the next game-year you can "settle up" the build(s) you are owed.

It’s one of the rare occasions where finalising won’t move the game along. You have to wait until the build phase is over.

why wouldn't it move the game along? The system clearly knows the difference as it colors the order in orange rather than red
