Proposal: Because Really, We Should Have Implemented This By Now (Take 3)

Change the text of paragraph 2 of the rule “Pie Quota” to the following:

If performing some action results in at least one Baker having more than 20 Pies, then those Bakers must immediately lose Empty pies—or, if the Baker has no Empty pies, pies of the flavor they own that comes first in alphabetical order—one by one until their total is exactly 20.  Once the total reaches 20, these automatic losses stop.  To clarify: due to the rule of “Empty pies first, then alphabetical order,” Bakers have no choice in which pies will be trashed in this way.

My next take on a trashing mechanic, which dodges the problem that Clucky pointed out last time.  The automatic nature of this one prevents us from holding up the whole game until someone decides which pies to trash when they breach 20 (and it simulates what they would probably choose anyway).

Performing a trade with Bucky might result in Grey having 28 Pies, so Grey must lose 8 empties.
