Re: The turn 3 bug

The 'Turn 3' Bug is a disconnecting of the host in a game just before, during, or shortly after turn three.
The bug complicates things further as the following turn has orders missing from many dictators. Some people get to move and develop, but most lose a turn.
The game-playing solution to this bug is to leave the game immediately after this has happened to the host, but seeing that because everybody will leave the game one-by-one and quickly rejoin the game, the host position is passed on; essentially, by 'passing the buck' someone is going to lose a turn.
Therefore, the best thing to do is start a new game with a different host.
Most of the times, this doesn't happen to me when I host, but it has happened. It is the same as when we had that era of disconnections during just about every game: keep an eye out for who can host games efficiently.
