... lock a Pot?

The Host locks a pot when settlement is satisfied and it is time to draw numbers. No further changes to squares are possible on a locked pot. There is no feature to "unlock" a pot.
 
When a pot is locked, the system immediately assigns random numbers and notifies all players with claimed squares that numbers have been drawn.
 
To lock a pot:
 
  • Click "Lock" - Click the "Lock" link next to any closed pot on your Quickview page.
     
    <OR>
     
    With your game board displayed - click the "Lock" button from the Choose Action group.
     

     
    The system displays the game board page with the message, "Pot Locked!" below the game board. Random numbers are in place for each row and square.
