Call for Judgment: Its A Wash

Quorum Reached. Enacted 6-0—Clucky

If the CfJ here (https://blognomic.com/archive/honest_mistakes#comments) is pending, fail it

Close and End the 27th game (https://blognomic.com/archive/twenty_seventh_game_raven1207_vs_clucky#comments). Neither participant receives any Pegs or Magistrelli from it, no Moda is changed, no Fine may be made on it, and no bets made on the game may be collected or lost (other than the actions performed when starting the game, it as if the game never happened).

This game was a just a mess. I made a mistake early on playing the wrong six. Currently, the score in the game is 8-8. Raven could in theory score another Il Toro on his last play, but I can Arlecchino another Ace scoring another 4 points.  Furthermore, that 8-8 score ignores the fact that Raven incorrectly tried to score Il Propore, and so really its 8-5 in my favor, which means regardless of what Raven does for his final play I win (Its a bit unclear if the rules actually prevent scoring tricks that aren’t active or if we accidentally deleted that rule but I’d argue we should follow the way we’ve been playing and use ‘active’ to mean ‘active’)

So arguably I’d win. But it feels a bit sketchy to me to not lose a game due to Raven’s good sportsmanship forgiving my honest mistake, but then also win the game off of Raven’s honest mistake. So while I don’t think we should just go with “rescore everything as if Raven had scored everything completely proper” I think the fairest thing to do is just call the game a wash and move on like it never happened, hopefully having learned from our mistakes.

(obviously if Raven turns out a magic play to score like 8 points that I’m missing I’ll vote against this)

I’ll be holding off to see how Raven votes.
