Last month, under the heading of being too competitive, players were warned not to “collude with one opponent to defeat the other opponent.”
What does “collude with one opponent” mean?
- Agree with one opponent who makes a claim against the third player when you know the claim is not true. For example, you back an opponent who claims a ten-second warning was given to the third player when you know that the warning was not given.
- Prearrange with an opponent to “gang up” on the third player. For example, you agree that if either you or your co-conspirator is destined to lose the match, you will help the other win by, for example, making a move that makes the Solution impossible. Your ally, forewarned of what you plan, grabs the Challenge block before the third player.
- Give information to an opponent that helps that player play better. For example, you tell a player the value of the Goal that was set by the third player or give them information that helps them work out the Goal.
