Proposal: Not All Stamps are Equal

Times out and passes 2-1. -Bucky

Add the following text to the end of the rule “Stamps”:

A letter’s Rarity Value is 20 minus the number of Visitors that have Stamps associated with it, to a minimum of 1. The Personal Value of a Stamp in a Visitor’s Stamp Collection is equal to its associated letter’s Rarity Value, plus twice the number of other Visitors within their Group who have Stamps with the same associated letter, plus 30 if no Visitor outside their Group has a Stamp with that associated letter.

In the rule “Turns”, change

If the date is on or after December 4th 2022 and a single Group has more Stamps than every other Group (where a Group’s Stamps are the total of all of those in the Stamp Collections of Visitors it controls), then that Group achieves victory. The Group may announce upon declaring victory that a Visitor it controls has become the Heir to the park.


If the date is on or after December 4th 2022 and a single Visitor’s Stamp Collection has a higher total Personal Value than that of any Visitor outside its Group, then the Proprietor shall make a Story Post appointing that Visitor the Heir, upon which the Heir’s Group achieves victory.

Making the group’s heir candidate count more than their supporters, making rarer stamps worth more for the victory calculation, and giving a monopoly bonus for being the only Group to hold a given Stamp.

against Glazing over a bit at the complexity of the equation, as something that will need to be mentally recalculated (or to at least have a private helper script written) several times to find an optimal move.
