Proposal: Always Read the Plaque

Times out at 2-3. Failed by pokes.

Adminned at 01 Jul 2020 12:18:08 UTC

In “Plaques”, replace “A Gambler whose Points are greater than the sum of all other Gamblers’ Points, and also greater than the number of Segments on the Wheel, is a High Roller.” with:-

A Gambler is a High Roller if they have more Points than every other Gambler, and more than fifty Points.

We removed deducting payments for Wagers a while ago, without changing the Plaque achievement condition. With scores as they stand, a player has to establish at least a 100-point lead over everyone else, to win a Plaque. This is practically impossible.

against a flat race to 100. Some margin of victory feels better.

Derrick: Do you mean that it should be a flat race to 100, or that needing a LEAD of 100 points or more is fair?

I meant to write 50, not 100. I meant as written this proposal is a simple race to pass 50.

I’d prefer a lead of points, like say 20.

“if they have more Points than every other Gambler” requires some lead in points, I think enough to be an interesting tiebreaker when (as now) multiple players could get there.

It’s certainly an improvement on “nobody can win plaques”. Propose an amendment by all means.

for This is certainly better. If it gets patched that’s fine too.
