Can someone take an action that is not possible in their perceived gamestate if they have reason to believe it is possible in the actual one? And if so, would that cause a change to their private display?
For example, suppose that I reach the top row in my perceived gamestate, but I do not win the game. I then know that there must be at least one more row above me in the true gamestate. Could I move up even though it is not possible to do so in my perceived gamestate?
Yep, you can totally do that. Could also happen that for example my communications with some other player have us pretty confident that in actuality, he is on the tile right above me. In my perceived gamestate, there's no one there. I can still try to leapfrog.
Beware as this also extends to plain old screwing up. E.g. I say I move up. Then I look at the display properly again, and it turns out there's a wall there. Can't change it anymore... I lost my turn. The Action is still considered to have been taken even if it fails. (tho who knows could turn out to be a valid move in the ur-gamestate).
