Proposal: Nothing Up My Sleeves

Reached quorum 4 votes to 0. Enacted by Kevan.

Adminned at 09 Nov 2015 11:18:16 UTC

Repeal the rule “Sleeves”.

Remove “Add the Card that was Removed from the Spread (i.e. the first card from the previous Spread) to their Discard pile.” from the rule “Drawing”.

After the first paragraph of “Discards”, add:-

If they have not done so since the most recent Drawing of a card, a Reader may Lift a card. Upon doing so, they may choose to either:-

  • Add an Unrevealed card of rank zero to their Discard pile.
  • Replace a card in their Discard pile with an Unrevealed card which is exactly one rank higher than it.

Remove all cards from all Readers’ Discard piles.

Detaching Discard piles from being a matter of being lucky or awake enough to take that morning’s Draw action, and/or lucky enough to get a good Sleeve draw.

for This removes all cards from Discard piles but not from Sleeves—I take it that column just ceases to exist?

Yes, I can’t see that there are any rules that would be upset by it just disappearing; the rule is just tracking the name of a card, and making that card Revealed. When the rule goes, the cards default back to being Unrevealed.
