Forum rules
In addition to the general Forum Guidelines (see here: viewtopic.php?f=130&t=15441), there are additional rules for posting in this forum.
1. Members should not refer directly to a specific situation in an active game. It is usually possible to provide an example of a similar situation elsewhere on the board.
2. It follows that links, images, game name and/or number should not be added to a post if the game is active.
3. Questions should only request rules be clarified and not request advice about how to resolve a situation.
4. When answering a question, members should restrict themselves to answering the question and not give advice on how to get around the situation.

How early can a Draw be proposed?

Postby Shyvve » 21 Apr 2017, 03:37

I have a simple question regarding when Draws are permitted to be proposed.

In this locked thread from Aug 2014, super_dipsy states that:
"1. Draws cannot be proposed until Spring 1905 (or the equivalent number of turns in other variants), and cannot be made at all if the game is solo-only"

It seems that I've also read in more recent threads that Draws can be proposed earlier though (perhaps as a solution to massive first turn surrenders/NMR's, not sure the reason why now).

Plus the "Status" tab would lead one to think that Draws can be proposed earlier than S05.

Anyone have a quick answer? Thank you in advance.

Draws can be offered any time. This change was announced here.
