Proposal: Kong sequence

Fewer than a quorum not voting AGAINST. Failed 2-3 by Kevan.

Add a rule called “The End of the World!” with:

When the MGTA reaches a value of 1.5 or higher from a value below 1.5, The Ocean Explodes, Everything Dies Horribly (for Real) and the World Ends. When the World Ends, a Metadynasty begins with no EM as its UNSG, all dynastic rules repealed, no changes to the Active/Inactive state of Special Case Rules, along the following amendments:

“all Energy Minister (abbreviated EM) shall obey it” to “all Survivahs shall obey it” and “known as the UN Secretary-General (abbreviated UNSG).” to “known as the Emprah.”

and EMs renamed to “Survivah” and UNSG to “Emprah” throughout the Ruleset

5 players, at 20 IO would reach 1.5 MGTA in 15 “years” (assuming that is about 30 days) .
5 * 20 * 15 / 1000 = 1.5

And 1500/6*30=8.33 “years”, 16.7 days, another realistic estimate.

But don’t get me wrong, I like the everyone-loses flavor of it!

And a couple of players at 90 (the achievable maximum under current rules) would get us there quicker.

against If there’s a big red “nobody wins” button, it’s tempting for players to reach for it (either by ramping up their IO, or pulling a scam to trigger it) if they’re at a point where somebody else is almost definitely going to win. The button pusher loses either way.

I’m also not much of a fan of metadynasties, it’s always healthier to have an Emperor around to veto and keep people awake.

Maybe we could change it to that pokes wins instead? And we put in Dynastic Distance.

Or perhaps we just vote for someone to have the dynasty if the World Ends.

for I love the flavour, and I agree with Cuddlebeam, the first thing the Survivahs can do is choose the biggest and toughest among them to be da Boss.
