Proposal: So I guess we never actually fixed this, huh

Failing for s/k. ~lilomar

In the rule entitled “Locked Stations”, remove Mornington Crescent from the list, and add the following to the end of that rule:

Additionally, Mornington Crescent is Sealed. Sealed stations are subject to the same movement restrictions as Locked stations.

While we’re arguing over what the victory condition should look like, let’s put MC safely over here, out of the way.

The word “movement” is a bit open to interpretation, there.

@Kevan - it would be a slightly tenuous interpretation if it resolved differently to the way that “move” is currently defined in rule 2.6, I think.

I was more concerned about Rule 2.5, really, but it looks okay on closer inspection, as it also uses the verb “move”. It does leave us open to a later Oddity or piece-relocation mechanic that happens to use a different sentence structure, though. Your new rule effectively says that the “A player may never place their piece on a locked station.” sentence of Rule 2.10 does not apply to Sealed Stations.

against CoV. As Josh points out here, “subject to the same movement restrictions as Locked stations” can be read as only applying to the Stations, not the Pieces. (So it’s just saying that Mornington Crescent’ isn’t allowed to move itself.)

against s/k, then. Kevan, your vote here would seem to be consistent with an s/k on your own proposal? Not that it does anything now, admittedly.

In the meanwhile, MC is still vulnerable to a single unlock, so if someone with slots wants to propose a seal that works then that would probably be a good idea…

This is self-killed, guys, you can stop voting on it.
