... clear a player's squares?

A player might claim and lock squares, but later ask to withdraw from one or more squares.
 
If the Host agrees, any or all of a player's squares can be freed again for play - until the game is locked.
 
To unlock a player's square(s):
  1. Click "Clear." - On the Hosts view of the playing board, click the "Clear" button in the "Choose Action" group of buttons below the game board.
     


  2.  
  3. Choose a player. - The system displays the "Remove Player/Clear Squares" function.
     

     
    Locate the player in the list of players with currently locked squares.

  4.  
  5. Choose a number of squares. - Use the drop-down list to select the number of squares you want to clear.

  6.  
  7. Clear the player's squares. - With the correct number of squares selected for the appropriate player, click the "Clear number of squares" button. The system unlocks that number of squares for that player, then displays the game board.
     
    NOTE: Even if all of a player's squares are cleared, that player may still claim squares. If this presents a problem, consider removing that player from the invitation lists of future pots.
