new player info
- The position of "the admin" is held by me (Joel Ricker, email@example.com)
- The admin is responsible for maintaining and publishing: a history of player submissions and their moves; the status of the board and the dice; and the ruleset and its consequences.
- The admin owns and rolls two fair six-sided dice.
- The admin may edit player's submissions to make them suitable for publishing as long as their meaning is preserved. Such changes can include adding HTML tags and correcting typos.
- The decision of the admin is final.
- Anyone may join the game and become a player by informing the admin.
- Each player must have a unique email address and a unique name that will not confuse or annoy the game's community.
- The admin is not considered to be a player.
- Ending The Game
- The game will end immediately (and perhaps drastically) should the admin ever receive serious and unreconcilible legal threats from the manufacturer of a board game.
- The Board
- The game shall include a collection of numbered, ordered squares known as the board.
- Each player occupies exactly one square. There is no limit to the number of players that may occupy the same square.
- Players will be moved from one square to another during the game. A move from one square to the next sequential square shall be known as "advancing"; all other moves are "jumps".
- When a player takes a turn, the admin rolls two dice for her and advances her once for each pip shown on the dice.
- If the dice show doubles, the player earns another turn to be taken immediately.
- Square One
- The first square shall be known as Square One.
- All new players begin the game on Square One.
- If a player on the last square is required to advance, that player immediately moves to Square One; that move is still considered an advance.
- Players may propose to add new rules or change the existing rules of the game by submitting a proposal to the admin.
- If a player submits a proposal while another of her proposals is still undecided, then the later proposal wholly replaces the earlier one.
- The admin will judge all properly submitted proposals, accepting or rejecting them. If a proposal is accepted, the admin will then alter the game state to implement all of the proposal's changes.
- When a player's proposal is judged by the admin, that player will take a turn.
