Proposal: Hands Off!

Withdrawn. Failed by Kevan.

Adminned at 02 Apr 2023 11:11:57 UTC

In “The Building”, after the bulleted list of building contents, or after the subrule “Building Contents” if it exists, add the following:

If no action has been taken in the past 24 hours that has changed the Building Contents, and the Building is not Collapsed, then the Building is Stable.  Otherwise, it is not Stable.

and change any instances of the rulestext “If the building has collapsed, then any Engineer can Move On.” and “While the Building is Collapsed, any Engineer can Move On.” to

While the Building is Collapsed or Stable, any Engineer can Move On.

Giving an escape hatch if nobody wants to mess with the Building.

It feels like this would take all the incentive out of “playing Jenga” in the first place. Who would bother with Build when they could just Move On instead?

There needs to be a reward for doing a Build, or a penalty for doing a Move On, preferably the former since we probably want a no-penalty use of Move On once the Building is Collapsed.

Yeah, there should be a reward for taking Build actions, but that feels outside the scope of the proposal

against  I believe a reward for messing with the building can come first and then we can look at this again later.

against 24 hours seems a bit short when there’s not currently any incentive to Build, would be a shame if a little gameplay happened and then the stack reset.
