... close a Pot?

When the Host closes a pot, no more changes are allowed by players. However, numbers are not drawn until the pot is locked.
 
Unless you have arranged "pre-settlement" Terms (players submit pledges before claiming squares) closing the pot is a good way to put things "on hold" until settlement is completed.
 
NOTE: The system will not close any pot with open squares remaining.
 
To close a pot:
  • Click "Close" - From the list on your Quickview page, click the "Close" link next to the open pot you want to close.
     
    <OR>
     
    With your game board displayed - click the "Close" button from the Choose Action group.)
     

     
    The system displays the game board page with the message, "Pot Closed!" below the game board.
