If “Risk Management” or “Safety Dance” passes, this proposal does nothing.

From the “Build” Atomic Action, delete the bulletpoints starting with “If they do so, and the Material has the..”, “If the Block that was swapped with…” “Spend any amount of Focus…” and “Decrease Building Stability…”
change

So this basically lets us Build forever until someone intentionally Collapses the Building.

It’s a bold move indeed.

I think this would reduce the current luck aspect of the game to just being the player who’s online at the right time to inspect and then collapse?  against

I’m still holding out the possibility of making Stability work for the game, as I think it’s core to the Jenga theme. We’re starting to get more ideas again, and one of them will get us out of being stuck.
