... open a Pot for play?

After creating a pot (including its Rules and Terms) the Host must open the pot before players can claim any squares.
 
    A pot is not open until "Play Here" appears in each of the squares and the "Choose Your Icon" function appears below the board.

 
To open a pot:
  • Click "Open" - Click the "Open" button in the "Choose Action" group, below the board.
     

     
    NOTE: Some hosts open the pot only after "pre-settlement," in which all players submit pledges for a certain number of squares in advance of opening the pot. See: Terms
