Latest forum activity:
This one will be last one, i.e. game ends when the website says "turn 75".
Does it mean this very turn 74 is the last TRN for submitting, next (75th) RST fixes positions? Or we have one turn more?
I have set the victory condition to end turn 75, as a totally scientific average of 70, 80, probably-not-so-serious-100 and currently-71.
The one who doesn't want to play always may vote by feet as the bird.
By the way, there is no reason to vote without a decision rule.
Let us end this game early, guys. 3 of 7 alive players don't want to play anymore.
