Proposal: Too musty

At 1-8, cannot pass. Failed by Brendan.

Replace “When it is an Island’s Turn, they must carry out the following atomic action:” with “When it is an Island’s Turn, they may carry out the following atomic action, called Taking a Turn:”.

At the end of “Turns”, but before “Delayed Rules”, add the paragraph

If it has been an Island’s Turn for 48 consecutive hours, that Island is Dormant. If there is a Dormant Island, the most recent Island to have Taken a Turn may Take a Turn as if they were that Dormant Island.

Taking someone else’s turn for them seems a bit much, when that turn could include potentially big optional actions like “set Pressure to zero”.

It also still leaves the game blocked if the “most recent Island to have Taken a Turn” also times out, or has idled. Blanking the Turn Timer of a Dormant Island would be simpler, wouldn’t it?

That makes it a pretty good impetus to take one’s turn. 48 hours plus a blog post is sufficient notice for a game moving sequentially. Now I’m thinking that it’s not strong enough, that the better response for not going for too long is something that moves someone out of the queue permanently, effectively disqualified for the rest of the dynasty.

I think that might be a bit too spicy for me.

Yeah, the flip-side to any punishment mechanic is that some players will just leave and not come back. That’s bad for the game.

Moving someone out of the queue until they put themselves back into it (set their Timer to “?”, allow players to set their own timer from “?” to “-”) would be fine.

against I think we should just skip them. Allowing people to go later would probably be too advantageous.
