No T-Stamp for “four or more Visitors from the same Group have the Front Effect of a Queue applied to them in the same Turn” (Katelyn, Lucrezia, Nigel, Cornelius)?

Oh! Now I understand all of your issues with this stamp. You’re reading the rule of “a queue” as “any queue”, whereas I (and I think Bucky) was reading it as “the same queue”.

Oh, huh. My issues with the T-Stamp are there either way: players in the most auspicious timezones will be able to submit orders at the very end of every turn, after seeing which queues have been left open.

The Stamp’s creator (Habanero) has since idled, but I’d say the intention was clearly about having multiple visitors reach the fronts of different queues at the same time. Its talk of “impressive coordination” doesn’t really describe crowding into a single large-Admission Queue. The Stamp also entirely pre-dates the Gift Shop; the ruleset at the time of its enactment didn’t have any queues with an Admission above 3. Nobody remarked at the time that it would be impossible to collect the Stamp.

That like a CfJ controversy rather than a matter of Proprietor’s discretion.

I was asking first in case it was just an oversight. Since that sounds like it wasn’t, I’ll put a CfJ up.
