Running a single turn is accomplished by left-clicking on the small planet icon in the lower right-hand corner of the main game screen. This screen is the only place where games can be saved.
Note that games can be saved only from the main game screen where you see the diamond-shaped map.
Occasionally, you may have trouble saving the current state of your game. If this happens, you will be unable to select the inactive Save menu item in the File menu. To remedy this, try running another turn before you again select the Save Game option. This will permit the internal processing steps required so that you can save the current state of the game.
After loading a saved game, the mines on the main screen will all appear red and not indicate their true status. There will also be no turn number under the lower-right globe. You must run a turn for the mines to change to the proper status color and for the turn number to update.
