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.

Hi

I joined a game where one of the nations had surrendered. Now it seems fairly pointless to continue. (Half of the nations seem to have given up anyway so no actual diplomacy) how do you surrender.

And lose the point? I wouldn't.

It's annoying, but I would play on, and see who else is continuing. It makes for a variation of the game.

Hi

Thanks you make a fair point.

I am not to bothered about rankings though, I was more asking for a game mechanics point of view (As it happens people are starting to open up now).
