Proposal: House of Plaques

Reached quorum 9 votes to 0 with 1 DEF. Enacted by Kevan.

Adminned at 14 Jul 2020 09:19:31 UTC

In “Plaques”, replace “A Gambler whose Points are greater than the sum of all other Gamblers’ Points, and also greater than the number of Segments on the Wheel, is a High Roller.” with:-

A Gambler is a High Roller if they have more than 50 Points, and at least 20 Points more than each other Gambler.

Reproposal of Always Read the Plaque from a couple of weeks ago, adding the 20 point lead that Derrick requested.

As it stands, there’s no way to gain Plaques or end the current gambling round, as “greater than the sum of all other Gamblers’ Points” is practically impossible given the player scores right now (you need to reach a score above 285, and by the time you’ve got that far other players’ scores will likely also have risen, increasing that target score more quickly than your own score can increase). It made sense under the original betting system which resulted in scores fluctuating above and below zero, but not under this one.

[FamilyMan] Note that because we’re playing a (rare) dynasty without an Emperor, voting DEF is essentially an abstention - your vote won’t count either way. (Normally a DEF vote would be converted to match the Emperor’s vote.)
