And the game is afoot.

No complaints about people's response times.

For some reason I am unable to give orders from my phone. It worked fine last time.

Hmmm, I was able to do orders on my phone still. Temporary glitch hopefully? You aren't trying to submit orders from the "Press" page, of course?

No, I wasn't. The developers of Backstabbr tweeted that they pushed an update last night that resulted in several glitches. They rolled back the update a bit ago, and now I can play.

Oh, good to hear. Or at least... good to hear they rolled back the breaking change.

It occurred to me to put in a plug to the new players (if they are checking the forums?) about the sandbox mode available on this website we're using. You can create a sandbox from the current game state and then play out your orders, as well as submit orders for the other players.

I have a very good grasp on the rules, and I still used it every single turn last game to make sure I wasn't making some bonehead mistake. (The interface WILL allow you to issue invalid orders.) Sometimes it's useful for pointing out things you may not have thought about, like where people are going to be able to retreat to, or just exactly what the board might look like after a turn is over.

Anyway, I think it's a great tool to take advantage of.

I only used the sandbox once last game, but it was a godsend. I'll be using it more this time. I'll also be paying more attention to the retreat rules, lest I find an unwanted shrimp on the barbie.
