Proposal: A fix to map guessing

Self-killed. -Bucky

Append the following to the rule [MAP] Map Guess:

This method of scoring is legal and valid regardless of any Rule that states otherwise. Addidionally, this rule takes precedence over the rule Grading.

Grading isn’t provisional, before someone says so.

Note: seems maybe simpler to remove the only-this-way clause from Grading?

Note: Probably, now that you mention it. I think I have a habit of over complicating things. I think I was thinking that new scoring methods could be introduced too easily if that was the case.

Note: The thing is, the only-this-way clause isn’t the only problem. Grading says a rule only lets a player score if that rule has a 3 letter code (none of them do), that that code can’t be used more than once, which would make Map scoring a one time thing, and that when a Scribe scores they gain a Project based on said 3 letter code. (and that Projects are only rewarded this way) Finally, I just noticed this final clause at the end of the rule. “This Rule takes precedence over other dynastic rules for the purpose of determining when or whether a Scribe Scores.” This method might actually be the simplest fix that doesn’t involve removing the rule Grading entirely.

Note: Ah right [MAP] does have a code. Most of my points still stand though.


17-07-2016 17:35:20 UTC

Note: with your fix, I could guess over and over again. ANY rule that states otherwise? Including this one?

Note: The method of scoring itself specifies that the Rule used couldn’t have been guessed at before.

So, that’s not really a loophole.

But I’m with Brendan.

against Self kill. Going to have to put a lot more thought into this.

You leagaly could have edited it, all Note: comments.

I’m aware.

I don’t think this is necessary.  Grading explicitly lets other (qualified) rules cause Scoring.  The clause you’re worried about bars (e.g.) Scoring by CfJ or Proposal.
