Selecting "Snapshots" on the "Main Menu" of the "Game Board" page or the "Stock Market" page will bring up the sub menu shown on the right. This sub menu can be used to take or to display snapshots of the current game. Snapshots can be used to resolve questions about the progress of the game.

Taking a Snapshot

Clicking Take Snapshot on the Snapshots sub menu will cause the Take a Snapshot dialog box to open. It can be used to take a snapshot of the current state of the game. This dialog box is shown to the right. It is recommended that a snapshot be taken every time a new tab is created on the game's spread sheet. For ease of coordination, it is suggested that the snap shot label (which should be placed in the Enter Snapshot Name: field) contain at least the name of the current round.

Looking At Snapshots Of The Current Game

Three BOARD18 pages exist to allow players to make use of existing snapshots. The use of these pages is described below.

Viewing A List Of Snapshots For The Current Game

Selecting "Show Snap List" on the Snapshots sub menu will bring up the board18SnapList page. This page will display a list of all of the snapshots that have been taken for the game so far. This list will be ordered with the most recent snapshots appearing first. And it will become paginated when the number of snapshots becomes large enough. A sample of such a list is shown to the right.

Clicking on the "Snapshot Name" for a snapshot will bring up the board18SnapMap page for this snapshot. You can use this page [and the associated board18SnapMrk page] to resolve questions about the progress of the game.
