Finalize Orders

I searched the forums and couldn't find the answer to full answer to this question, but I apologize in advance if I missed it.

As I understand it, I need to hit "finalize orders" prior to the end of the turn. However, can I change my orders once I finalize them? Essentially, I'm concerned I might forget to hit finalize prior to the end of the season and am pretty confident in my current orders, but I also don't want to lock in my orders without being able to change them if some last minute communications demand I change them.

Any thoughts?

Thank you in advance.

Yes, you can change orders after you finalise them.

Do note that if you change orders after a finalisation, you'll need to finalise them again. Changing any order given cancels the "Finalise Order" command given in the past.

You also don't have to hit finalize ever. If the turn expires and you haen't finalized, it'll process the orders you put in anyway. Finalize just allows players (if all agree) to process the orders before the original deadline.

Because I don’t like the hold the whole game up unless I know I’m waiting for an answer I’ll often put in my expected order, hit finalize and see if the clock goes to zero, if so I was the last player to submit, if not I may change an order (even resubmit same order) so that it cancels the finalize and I can see if any more communications come.

Just another possibility for you.

Yep, put your orders in, finalize, and go to bed.

Finalizing is ALWAYS an option. If you input orders and don’t finalize, those orders will be processed just fine. If you finalize then go back later and decide to change an order, you’re free to do so.

Finalizing is purely an option in case everyone on a board is content to move to the next turn, and you should at no point feel pressured to finalize your orders if you feel you need more time.
