This is the "something else" with Fruits that I wanted but couldn't
think of a good idea.

However, I'm kinda curious what a Thorn Seed Drink tastes like, and
don't want to try to find out what a Rotten Tomato Drink tastes
like. :)

Not take any Action seems a bit harsh... And I think it would prevent
Forfeiting as well.

Is the player doing the action responsible for throwing the dice? For
something like making a move in a subgame, couldn't the player just
try again (since the action didn't take place, they didn't make a move
yet this checking period, and thus could try again)?

This sounds like the Chair gets to choose which Poll to change
randomly. While I like the sound of that as the current Chair, you
might want to make the Poll choice random as well. And, it'd currently
be possible for the Chair to choose the same Poll more than once, I'd

If the person doesn't vote at all, does it get randomly changed from
Abstain to something else?
