Need some help with understanding the 'extends due to missed turns' mechanism
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.
What I would have expected is that the "next turn" countdown would reset, and I would've lost a number from my "delays left."

I did see my "delays left" go down by one, to be clear, from 4 to 3 - but the turn still processed with all my units having "held." No message popped up in chat saying "the game has been extended..."

Notably, another country also entirely held a week or two ago - but the trouble is that we're in an anonymous game, so I can't just ask whether it happened to them, or check if their "delays left" counter went down - nor can I bring up this issue now, because I'll give away who I am.

So is there something in the rules I may be missing that might explain this? Let me know if there's any context that could help.

We did have a lack of orders extend the game back in May, further confusing me. Message was:

> Spring, 1995: GameMaster: Game was extended due to at least 1 member failing to enter orders and having an excused missed turn available. This has un-readied all orders.

It's totally possible this is also a PEBKAC somehow, but I don't even remember looking at the board yesterday.

The rules for the game are '4 excused NMR / regain after 5 turn(s) / extend the first 3 turn(s)'; it's a ten-player Europe variant.

If this isn't the right spot to ask, my apologies! Thanks!

So the rules are 4 excused NMR / regain after 5 turn(s) / extend the first 3 turn(s)

The 'extend the first 3 turns' portion means that any excused NMRs will extend the game, but only for the first three turns. After the first 3 turns, the game progresses, with your NMR as an 'all holding' situation. The excused NMR portion only serves to not affect your reliability rating in this case.

Perhaps 'delays' would be more clear as 'excuses', but that's basically the jist.
Ah, thanks! That explains it. Now I gotta figure out if there's a way to bring that up in chat without blowing my cover...
(to be clear, because based on a chat a few days ago where I said 'wow it's great we haven't missed a turn in a long time,' followed by everyone agreeing, I'm pretty sure no one else knows that)'

Sometimes just being silent in chat about something is a good idea. ;-)
Heh, yeah, hopefully it doesn't bite anyone else. Thanks again!

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.
