Have fun in this game! :D It's sad that the game starts shortly after I plan to go to bed. If the time was more convenient for me, I would have joined. Still, I am looking forward to looking back at this game tomorrow morning and seeing what happened. The large amount of NMRs at the start will not spoil the fun.

Having looked at the game, @Caustic is my hero for doing what we have all dreamed of doing: Building an army at Tunis
ubercacher16 (1664 D)
Wed 24 Jun UTC
Caustic didn't do it on purpose, he missed the build phase and the auto build is an army for every center.

Hi All!

So, I have a turn I just missed (I'm a bad person). What surprised me is that the turn processed with all of my units having "hold" orders.

Black Lives Matter
I saw that WebDip has put a little header on their website in support of Black Lives Matter and the protests in the United States. I thought it was a really good way to use their platform for good and I was wondering if Vdip could do something similar?

What is a "turn"?
I was just wondering what counts as a turn, for example for "extend the first X turns". Is "Spring 1901" a turn, or does it count all phases, or does it count the movement and build phases but not retreat?

Suggestion: Close chat option
On large variants, having lots of chats open makes the mobile interface quite cumbersome. It'd be nice if we could close chats, or if chats with dead people closed automatically.
