More builds than national centers

Question about the rules of the game? Experienced Diplomacy veterans will help you! There is also a Common Questions section.
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.
Posts which break these rules will be subject to editing or removal; see here: viewtopic.php?f=13&t=42845

More builds than national centers

Postby VisaForAnfisa » 12 Aug 2018, 16:27

Hello.

In one of my games, I have three builds but only two national centers to make new units.
I can't finalize orders, and I'm at risk of NMR. What can I do?

It's possible to finalize orders.

It will just say that you still have orders to do, but you have actually finalized it.
The adjudication: You did not use one of your builds.

But you will NOT NMR.

Builds never count as NMRs ... finalize or not...you're fine

Congrats on getting more builds than you have spaces.

Wow, I wish I shared your build phase problems.

Mine are usually more along the lines of what to do when I have more destroys than units ;)

You realize it probably just means she doesn’t have one of her home centers open?

Yep, that's the only thing it could be.
And that isn't even relevant to what they said :P.
