I have excused myself for more points than the Commitment requires, can I bank my Excuse points for the next Commitment that comes?

Unfortunately not, but we’re sure you fooled your Significant Other stylishly with the perfect Excuse for the Commitment at hand. Some people like to play where they deliberately use higher Excuses than are really needed in order to deter Influence cards being slid their way. However, others find it more useful to play Excuses that only add up to the Commitment total and then play it by ear for any sneaky Influence that might slide in. Regardless of the preference, when that Commitment is passed off to the next player, all points attached to it, be that Excuses or Influence, are sent to the discard pile.
