Does the 12 hours for retreats still take place when they are no retreats?

Prefer finalization so the moves, retreats, moves, builds, are predictable.

I created 12 games, but want to make some changes. Is that possible since the game has not started yet? If yes, how?
If not, is it possible to delete a game? If yes, how?

No, thus the impossibility to have completely predictable phase deadlines.

No.

Send a PM to the "HELP!" group, informing them of the game numbers of the games you want deleted.
Or,
leave them be and they will get automatically deleted after a month.

Actually, we may have recently added a new feature to delete games that you've created... I forget if that happened or not.

If you create a game and there are no players in it yet, there is a delete button visible when you display the game. This can be used to delete it.

Hello

I figured out the game number and entered 7 student usernames (already had entered usernames and passwords), but got this message:

"Seven unique student names that you have created must be specified to use the Fast Track game setup service"

What do I still need to do?

Sincerely,

Mike

I have PMed Mike. In case anyone else read this, the error message comes up if any of the following are true:
- There is at least one duplicate student name in the list
- There is a username in the list that is not one of the teacher's student names
- There are less than 7 usernames provided

Click on it, then hit retreat and then the space you are retreating to (or hit disband.)
