You can open an existing game whenever it is your turn.
To open a saved game:
If you are already playing a game, Four Winds asks whether you wish to save changes to the current game before opening a new one.
Note: Four Winds 2 supports the file format of Four Winds 1.x so you can open old games, as well. However, some of the new features (e.g., game history), are not available when a 1.x version game is opened (unless you restart the game).
Tip: You can let Four Winds automatically open the last saved game on program startup by checking the Open last saved game on start-up check box. Notice that this works only if you close the program right after having saved the game.
