Proposal: Coins and Bonus things(Take 2)

Timed out and failed, 2-3. Josh

In ‘Dynastic Rules’ in section ‘Deeds’,

Add subsection ‘Coins’ with the description:

Each player has a positive integer of Coins, defaulting to 0 and are publicly tracked. As a daily action for a Player that can not be partaken within 48 hours of the of the last time this action has taken by that Player, that Player may reduce their Coins by 20 and then increase their Deeds by 1.


In ‘Dynastic Rules’ in section ‘Deeds’,

Add subsection ‘Bonus Coins Play’ with the description:

While Players are plotting Symbols in Tic Tac Town, Player can build Structures. Structures are defined as “[Name] - [Cost]; [Reward]” and are listed below in this subsection. The ‘Cost’ of the Structure is denoted as the parameters to build it. Once a Player has successfully gotten all the parameters of a give Structure, that player may turn all of their Symbols used for accomplishing the parameters to blanks and apply the ‘Reward’. The ‘Reward’ is denoted as Coins the Player Gains or a bonus action the Player must do, or a combination of both.

> “Each player has a positive integer of Coins, defaulting to 0”

I’m not actually sure what this does. 0 is not a positive integer.

I think technically it might infinitely loop resetting players coins to 0 per “If the rules that define a game variable are amended, and some previously valid values become invalid as a consequence, any existing variables whose current values would become invalid are instead set to their starting value.” There do not appear to be any rules in place that explains what happens when the default/starting value is itself invalid.

Maybe non negative should been a better word….

Pro tip: if you simply say it’s a number, the appendix gives you non-negative and a default (and starting value) of 0 for free:

“If a set of valid values is not specified in their definition, game variables defined to hold numeric values can hold only non-negative integers.”

“If a game variable has neither a default value nor a starting value, then both may be considered to be the nearest legal value to zero that it may take…”
