Proposal: Inactive Jams

Times out and passes 3-2. -Bucky

In the rule “Jam”, replace the text

When a Driver Drives a Jam Route, that Driver earns 2 Cash. Immediately after Driving a Jam Route, the traffic jam spreads

with:

When a Driver Drives a Jam Route, that Driver earns 2 Cash, and the traffic jam spreads

Subrule “Jam” specifies events that happen *after* Driving a Route, so technically these events are not restricted by “Subrules of this rule may specify events that happen upon Driving a route, but those effects do not happen unless the route was Active before it was driven.”

against As I read it, Driving an Inactive Jam Route spreads the Jam without making Cash. This mechanic potentially interesting and not obviously broken.

against Creates a race condition based on when the effect happens in relation to movign the jam to be back of the list

Clucky: This objection could be made for ANY Route, except for CASH Routes because they don’t have any effect besides earning their Driver some Cash.
However, the action of Driving consists in marking the route inactive and moving in to the bottom of the list, as per rule “Routes”, so anything that happens “upon Driving” necessarily takes place after that has been done.
