Proposal: A sliver of victory

Timed out and failed, 2-4.  Brendan

Add a new Subrule to Rule 2.4.  Call it “VictoryTokens” and give it the following text:

A VictoryToken is 1% of a victory.  Whenever a Corporation has 100 VictoryTokens, e has achieved victory.

The Production Rights for VictoryTokens initially belong to the Government, who may sell copies of the Production Rights as e sees fit.

against Too blankly mathy, involves no direct competition, and givs an obvious advantage to people who invested in Factories first.

for Seems okay to me - it’s good to have a direction early on.

And if the production rights turn out to be being sold for $50M, there’s no “obvious advantage” in having spent all your money on factories.

against There is no guarantee of an impartial government. Set a price to purchase production rights and I would vote for it.

I will use an auction mechanism to sell the Production Rights.  There will be direct competition and de facto impartiality.  It also allows those with Cash to outbid those with factories.  Happy?
