That may be the better way to go. Actually, rather than defining
taking, just changing the "losing" part of scoring to be creating
antipoints, and then rather than some Idling definition you can use a
pretty standard trigger "Whenever a player has at least one Point and
at least one Antipoint, e loses one Point and one Antipoint."

Then you don't need to worry about accidental recursion in the
Annihilation rule, and if we want to create Buying things, it may be
easier to define taking of points in just taking points instead of
generating Antipoints.
