Stuck in Traffic

Snisbo and TyGuy idle out after 7 and 8 days of inactivity respectively, having made no posts or comments since the dynasty started.

Question about the idle Groups’ Visitors. Are the Visitors just hidden in the game state or are they actually considered not there? I’m asking because since several Attractions have limits to the number of Visitors, how do the idle Groups’ Visitors get counted (or not) in that maximum number?

I think that the Visitors still exist, they aren’t controlled by anyone, and Front Effects still admit them.

I’d read it as them not, given that the concept is introduced as “Each Group controls a number of Visitors”, but reading it again I think they probably do still exist (but without legal names, because only controlled visitors have names).

I removed Elvis when idling TyGuy, I’ll put him back on the board.

We did take a couple of runs at addressing this kind of idle gamestate generically back in May, but neither took.
