Nonbinary wins, I guess!

250/250
  
Are we getting right back into it, or are we gonna change some rules? At some point me and Mathy came to the conclusion that the current format was biased in favor of the NB squad, and I think we settled on a fairer version.

  • Three stacks start at 250/250/250.
  • Each post must increase one stack by 1 and decrease another stack by 1.
  • No move may decrease a stack to below 0.
  • Girls win at 750/0/0, NBs win at 0/750/0, and boys win at 0/0/750.
  
I'd be okay with trying it that way, even if I'm not smart enough to understand the math behind why it's more fair.
  
We have reached a nondeterministic form (which fits with the NB win, in some sense)!

I agree with the change in rules, as the fourth party that the original game advocated for doesn't seem present in the current iteration of the game.
  
(Although to be fair, it seems NB folk are the only ones present and playing at the moment)

If Jaded wants to send me the text with the new rules, I can add it to the header post
  
In any case, I'll start us off at

250/250/250

Also, just looking back at the first page of this thread:

That was my original idea for how the game worked, but I'm pretty sure it would be unfairly stacked in favor of the non-binary squad. We can change the rules if this way takes too long.
