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.

Dear All,

I'm new to this website relatively.... is there a way to pause a game for a long weekend?

In the "status" drop box on the game map page, you can put in a pause request. Any deadline that falls during the pause will be pushed out until after the pause period. NB: if all players finalize, a phase will still process during a pause.

Also, the pause has to be unanimously agreed upon.

And remember its based on server time

Also, games can be set up as "No Weekend" games when they are created. Too late after the game has started obviously, that's where the pause comes in.
