Proposal: a couple of clarifications

In the Dynastic Rules, change the following:

If they were not the last player in the game to do so, either player in a Game may post a Sfida, which a comment that says it is a Sfida. Before either player may make their next Play or post another Sfida, the opponent of the player posting Sfida must respond with a comment specifying whether they accept or reject the Sfida. If they accept, the stakes of the Game are increased by 1, up to a maximum of 3. If they reject, the Game is Closed, and the player posting the Sfida is the Game’s Campione.
When each Player of a Game has made seven Plays in that Game, that Game is Closed, and the Campione of the Game is the player with the highest score. Once a Game has been Closed, no more Plays can be made in it, nor Sfidas posted on its Table.

to:

If they were not the last player in the game to do so, either player in a Game may offer a Sfida by posting a comment that says they are offering a Sfida (or contains only the word ‘Sfida’ and punctuation). Before either player may make their next Play or offer another Sfida, the opponent of the player offering Sfida must respond with a comment specifying whether they accept or reject the Sfida. If they accept, the stakes of the Game are increased by 1, up to a maximum of 3. If they reject, the Game is Closed, and the player offering the Sfida is the Game’s Campione.
When each Player of a Game has made seven Plays in that Game, that Game is Closed, and the Campione of the Game is the player with the highest score. Once a Game has been Closed, no more Plays can be made in it, nor Sfidas offered on its Table.

Additionally, change the following:

A Player’s score for a Play is based on the following patterns of cards (or “Tricks”) in their Pocket. For each Trick which has been claimed in the game in their Pocket they may score the indicated points.

to:

A Player’s score for a Play is based on the following patterns of cards (or “Tricks”) in their Pocket. For each valid and active Trick which they claim in their Play they may score the indicated points.

just a little cleanup. also, changed the language from “posting” a sfida to “offering” one, because saying “i offer sfida” is more natural than “this post is a sfida”. though this also makes stuff like “Sfida.” or “Sfida?” valid too!

aw this is outside of the 2 hour limit sorry I never got around to taking a look at this sooner. Unfortunately, the first bit doesn’t do anything because that paragraph in the rules has already changed.

second bit seems… probably okay. Although separation of tables doesn’t seem to apply to the active status of tricks.

maybe we need to do something like changing “Tricks in a game may only be claimed in reference to cards present at that game’s Table” to “Tricks in a game may only be claimed in reference to cards present at that game’s Table, and only if they are active in that game”
