Proposal: Simple is Beautiful (by E. F. Schumacher)

Withdrawn. Failed by Brendan.

If it exists, remove “When a player “wins” a game of Tic-Tac-Toe as described in this rule, it does not necessarily mean that they have achieved victory in the game of BlogNomic.”

To the rule “Tic-Tac-Toe Rules”, append the paragraph:

When a player “wins” a game of Tic-Tac-Toe as described in this rule, they have achieved victory in the game of BlogNomic.

I think it’d be neat to have the dynasty revolve around a single game of TTT, but with conditions that seem to make it impossible to complete the game. Think of it as a koan!

okay but if we’re going to go that route we’re going to have to patch up the rest of that rule

(This phrase will not exist in the ruleset if “Draught Bored” passes.)

Thanks, Brendan, I didn’t notice the replacement effect there. Fixed.

@Jumble Yes.

also it’s still unclear how this really connects to “The Grid” and that’s a bigger problem

This looks like it’s going to result in a very short dynasty. Also, I’m about to make a proposal to patch up the Tic-Tac-Toe rule.

also this wincon still seems way too easy yeah

Right! Jumble might be correct in saying it’d be easy. It really depends on how we interpreted “each player takes turns making a move until the game is over”. Is it talking about 2 players? all players? Can anyone “take turns” according to this, or is it merely descriptive?

Hm, I’m gonna say against, just because it’s unclear what the state of the game and board are, so if timing was right, someone could swoop in and win nearly instantly. The idea of having to win a nearly impossible, yet simple, game is appealing though

Brendan: he/him

15-02-2022 05:56:02 UTC

for Because I would like to swoop in and win instantly.
