Proposal: First to make a joke about pegging

In the rule Tricks, change the description of L’Aria to read as follows:

The sum of the Hefts of the cards your Pocket is higher than the sum of the Hefts in your opponent’s Pocket; can only be claimed when the Pockets of all players in the current game contain at least two cards. Points: 1

Add a subrule to the rule The Game, called The Magistrelli System:

High-level Giolitti still uses the Magistrelli ranking system to determine the relative skills of players.

Each Player has a Magistrelli score, which is an integer that defaults to 10. Every time a Player gains a peg they gain 1 Magistrelli, unless their opponent had a higher Magistrelli than them at the start of the game, in which case they gain half of the difference between their own Magistrelli and that of their opponent at the start of the game, rounded up.

For each Player, once add their current number of pegs to their Magistrelli score.

Uses ‘their opponent’ again which isn’t clearly defined.  Also, there should be a gamestate change that increases every player’s Magistreli by the amount of pegs they currently have.

Say, maybe there should be an “Opponent” keyword

I don’t see the problem with the word “opponent” clearly meaning “the other person in this two-player game we’re playing”. I cannot see a single other defensible interpretation.

I’m adverse to keywords for the sake of keywords; the determined marginal interpretation of otherwise clear natural language to problematise the ruleset just results in the ruleset ending up needlessly dense and technical.

Gamestate change sounds good; I’ll add that in.

doesn’t two cards still give an advantage to the first player? should be easier for their third card to get a 3 sum bigger than their 2 sum

but certainly progress for
