I enjoyed this update :) I should really get back to some of my old creations before all the elastic bands congeal too much... and I like the problem of simultaneous vs turn based play as an issue, though I'm not sure how much having an initiative order really helps compared to full turn-based systems?

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
