-It's amazing to me that you would bother to take the time to do that over and over. And that you think we wouldn't start ignoring you after a while, say, long before you could win from it. (I'm still fuzzy on how you win through /Style/ anyway...) Really, if you want to gang up on this rule and beat a win through with such a lack of finesse, that's great. Have fun. Of course, that hardly counts as an "instant" win... so so much for that idea, eh?-

It's not a win in this game, it's just style here. But the point is, if I join another game and get them to agree to set up a loophole that, in their game, grants me an infinite number of Wins (note that Win need not be defined the same way in a different game - it could refer to an essentially meaningless object, but they could also go in entirely the opposite direction from us and use it for currency or something). If I then exploit this loophole, I gain 15 Style in this game for doing it, plus 10 for each of the infinite number of Wins I got in that game. Instant infinity.

Of course, I'm already so stylish I can improve property values throughout a neighborhood just by visiting, but that's beside the point :)
