The changes I have seen in the game are fine with me.
The change from accecpted practice is understandably bothersome to
many of you but the control group has been basically non-functional
for a long time. If BOY had not published better rules, the rules would
still be subject to abuse. Whatever the reason, the control group is not
functioning as a unit.
BOY appears willing to take feedback and make adjustments where
appropriate. Unless there is a valid argument to make against the
changes that are being contemplated and/or implemented, I intend
to try to adapt to the changes and see how it plays.
Note to the Moderator : This is splitting up almost as badly as the rules thread.
