Add a new rule to the ruleset, entitled Overkill:

Notwithstanding the prohibition in the rule entitled Death and Scorekeeping, if a Gladiator is ever in a position to claim more than one Frag for killing another Gladiator, they may optionally claim an Overkill instead of any Frag they may be entitled to for that death. Claiming an Overkill must be done in the same Turn as the death for which the Overkill is claimed.

A Gladiator who claims an Overkill on another Gladiator shall transfer all of that Gladiator’s Frags to themselves. This transfer is not subject to the Frag claim limitation for a single Death specified in the rule entitled Death and Scorekeeping.

Ways that Overkill can be achieved:

* Passing a stickybomb onto another gladiator then pushing them into acid or shooting them with a harpoon
* Any number of permutations involving the Spring-Mounted Propeller Panel
* Putting two stickybombs onto the same target and having them both go off

against Frags seem simple enough. I don’t see a reason to complicate matters. Let’s just add new ways to gain frags.

against There is no such thing as claiming a frag. I like this rule, but it needs to work.

coppro - the ruleset currently uses both “receive” and “is awarded”, suggesting that there is no keyword for Frag acquisition. In that context, standard usage can be argued to be applicable.

PA: Coppro and I are currently around a week ahead of everyone else in frags. Linear frag progression isn’t going to make the game any more fun to play unless we also have mechanisms for narrowing gaps and upsetting existing orders. (Also, I’m not sure that this qualifies as complicated, but that’s another matter.)

against I don’t like this, seeing as frag generally means kills a single person has acheived

Also note that the last condition listed can’t actually occur since there is but one bomb.
