I was playing twilight-imperium with an opponent who would often 'take back' or 'adjust' moves.
In general I'm OK with this if:
- The player is new to the game
- It is a minor tweak on a part of the board that doesn't effect me directly (e.g. changing your mind on what planets to exhaust to pay for units)
The problem is that this player doesn't satisfy either of my criteria, because:
- The player actually owns the copy of twilight-imperium that we're playing
- The 'take backs' involve changing how many units to commit to battle after that combat has been resolved
During the game I expressed my displeasure, which was heard by the table. It's the only time I've seen a player be eliminated from the game. Obviously the player didn't like this, so 2 of the 6 players didn't have a great time.
So, my question is how can I encourage a 'no take backsies' policy in the game?
