Hmm... I'm not sure yet. You bring up some good points, but on the
other hand this means that I know when to block out time to try to
make changes, and I only have to do so every week and a half. If we go
to Thrids, then I foresee me needing to stop the clock more often to
catch up, as things would be changing all the time. Definitely dealing
with fewer props at once could help things, though.

So, I guess I'm not sure still. I am okay with the pace the game's
currently at, for whatever that's worth. Someone feel free to propose
it and we'll see what everyone else thinks. I'm fine with it being
however everyone else wants it.
