Magic: the Gathering in the UK
Until midnight of the fourteenth day after the adoption of this rule, a "Rules Blitzkrieg" shall be performed. During this period, the rules modifications
outined below are in effect. This does not create permanent changes to the
rules of the game - upon the 14 day period expiring this rule is immediately
repealed and the game returns to normal.
1. Rule 201 is suspended. There is no turn order, and players do not take turns. Players may
post rules whenever they wish, with the exception that any player may only have
one proposal being voted on by the other players at any one time. (This is the only important change - the rest are just to help this one work properly).
2. Rule 209 is suspended. When the fortnight is due to finish, if rule 209 has not been amended and there are currently over 25 mutable rules, rule 209 is repealed. (This rule is here to encourage people tomake as many proposals as possible during this period).
3. Players cannot score points as a result of rules that provide points for making or voting on proposals. Other methods of point scoring are still in effect. (This rule is here to lessen the amount of points bookkeeping that allowing scoring from proposals would entail).
4. Rule 306 is suspended. Instead, once 24 hours have passed since a proposal was made, if more
than one other player has voted on any given proposal, that proposal is passed
or not passed based on what the majority of voters on that proposal have
decided. If there is no majority either way, the proposal is defeated. (This rule is here to stop people from refusing to vote on proposals - something which would stop that player from participating further in the rules blitzkrieg).
5. Rule 314 is modified. A player may claim a maximum of one point for successfully hiding or spotting card names in each proposal. Players may still attempt to hide as many names as they wish, but will only receive one point regardless of how many are unspotted. This does not affect the bonus points awarded for concealing Cheatyface. (This rule is here to stop people taking advantage of the confusion by sneaking in multiple card names and hoping nobody votes in time).
6. Rules 318 and 319 are modified. A player who does not currently have an open challenge to a hunting trip may challenge another player to a hunting trip at any time. However, the player challenged in this way has the right to refuse the trip. If they do, then no hunting trip takes place and the challenge is closed. If they accept the challenge, the trip occurs as normal. The same applies to gambling proposals under rule 319. All hunting trip challenges will be posted on a “huntng
trip challenge” thread, and gambling challenges on a “gambling challenge”
thread. These threads will be created upon the adoption of this rule. (This rule is here to make it easier to carry on with these rules while the blitzkrieg is in effect, and to stop people from repeatedly spamming hunting trips and gambling challenges).
