Proposal: The Way The Wind’s Blowing

Enact a new rule, “Peer Pressure”:-

As a Weekly Action, a Councillor may change the Party allegiance of one Block to that of a new Party, if and only if a clear numerical majority of the Blocks orthogonally or diagonally adjacent to that Block support that new Party.

 

(i.e., in the case of the 64 non-peripheral Blocks of Auld Anchorage, a minimum of 5 orthogonally or diagonally adjacent Blocks would need to support a Party for the Councillor to be able to strongarm them into changing allegiance to that Party.)

Ah, every new player does this - proposals have to be put in the “proposal” category (so that the blog can detect them and put them in the sidebar) rather than just having “Proposal:” in the title.

Fifteen minutes have passed so you’re not allowed to edit this post’s category at this point, but you’re welcome to resubmit this proposal with the category box ticked. Seems good otherwise.

I would question the use of “new party” - “other existing” would be better, as they’re technically not “new”.

Note that the Door to Door proposal (which seems popular so far) is already doing a fairly similar thing to this one.
