Proposal: Did I win yet?

With only 6 Crewmembers not voting AGAINST, cannot pass. Failed by Brendan.

Add a new rule to the ruleset.  Call it “Victory Tokens” and give it the following text:

Victory Tokens are a resource tracked privately by the Ship Computer.  New Crewmembers start with no Victory Tokens.

When the Ship Computer determines that a Crewmember has three Victory Tokens, it shall make a blog post saying so and identifying that Crewmember; when it does, that Crewmember achieves victory.

Destroy all existing Victory Tokens.

This means win conditions can involve hidden information that the winning player doesn’t know.

I expect Victory Tokens to be awarded in blocs of three, but I’m leaving it frangible just in case.

A good direction for replacing the “DoV but get corrected” mechanism, but I don’t know why this doesn’t attempt to actually replace it.

More concerningly, this proposal fails to state how many victory tokens existing players start with, and goes onto imply that they might already exist, which seems a strange way to go about it.

against for being a victory-related proposal that does odd things.

Kevan: Then how would you word this proposal to get the clear effect of ‘nobody has any Victory Tokens yet’?

“Set the Victory Tokens of all Crewmembers to 0” would be conventional, I think.
