Thanks Jubal, I feel like time has given me a fresh perspective on the game too. The advantage of the initiative order is that most actions can still feel simultaneous for as long as they're not in the same region of the board. The initiative order would only kick in to resolve complex late game interactions. The mechanic Fox suggested comes from an old Richard Garfield game called Robo Rally

Thanks Jubal, I've probably been staring at it so long I no longer notice these things. I've been using Inkscape, which is free and can do most things publisher can. There is a ruler somewhere. Only problem is it seems to lack a spellchecker!

Thanks Balbor. I've never played FF Tactics myself but it does look interesting. I've recently got into other tactical games and I think they're more my thing. There's an Android version of Tactics I might investigate.

Thanks for the feedback Jubal. Some more visual prompts and text is a very good idea, and easy to do on PowerPoint. Thanks.

Do I detect a hint of a leading question in your idea for a competition? If your intention was to get me thinking about its execution, you've succeeded. The immediate problem would be how to define a suitable format for an "innovative mechanic" to be presented. It would be hard to judge one entrant's complete game vs. another's sketch of mechanisms. Defining the format would not be difficult. My personal interest in board game design is from a "let's take a big complex thing and represent it mechanically" perspective. So we could take a well-known concept - "the whole of human history" in my diary #37 - and challenge people to create something which represents it appropriately. We could ask for a few photos of rough components in action. There could be a paragraph explaining the mechanic, how it addresses the design brief and what its potential is (eg. how it could be combined with other mechanics/components to deliver a full game).
