Proposal: Testify to Diversify

Quorum Reached. Passes 8-0—Clucky

In the rule “motifs” replace

* A ‘’‘Pennant’‘’ is 2x2 square of Tiles where the top left and top right Tiles are two different colors, and the bottom left and bottom right tiles are those same two colors reversed. Its Benediction is: gain 5 Guilders.
* A ‘’‘Flower’‘’ is a gold Tile where all Tiles adjacent to it are the same color, and that color is not Green or Gold. Its Benediction is: gain 10 Guilders.

* A ‘’‘Pennant’‘’ is 2x2 square of Tiles where the top left and top right Tiles are two different colors, and the bottom left and bottom right tiles are those same two colors reversed. Its Benediction is: gain 5 Guilders minus one Guilder for each other Instance of a Pennant which that uses the same set of colors which appears on the Mosaic, to a minimum of 1 Guilder.
* A ‘’‘Flower’‘’ is a gold Tile where all Tiles adjacent to it (its petals) are the same color, and that color is not Green or Gold. Its Benediction is: gain 10 Guilders minus two guilders for each other Instance of a Flower whose petals the same color are the same color as the given instance which appears on the Mosaic, to a minimum of 2 Guilders.

Hope I worded these right.

Basic idea is that if there is already another flower with red petals on the board, you only get 8 guilders. If there are three of them, you only get four guilders. Likewise if there is already a bunch of green/yellow pennants on the board on only get one guilder for adding a new one.

Hopefully this stops the same pattern from getting spammed over and over.

I like it.

I’m not sure I like basing the limitations on colors.  There is no issue creating the same pattern in two completely different places of the board;  the issue is when the completion of one motif is used too bootstrap the creation of the next one.  is it possible to frame a limit on the guilders gained based on this aspect, whether the created motif is using tiles which were already part of the same/similar motif already?

I feel like that likely over complicates things. While sure, there isn’t any real issue with allowing another yellow green checkerboard on the other side of the board… why not just form a different checkerboard pattern instead?
