What if, instead of alternating turns, you can only get x moves ahead of your opponent before they go? Usually it’s 1 (that’s taking turns).

But the measure of a life isn’t in excitement, whether we find a burning car to pull someone out of. We can all change the world with small actions, minute by minute. Buying, calling, voting — or not.
And of inestimable power: the kind word, or the harsh one.
Most of the stories we tell about triumphing over evil involve swords and guns and Chosen Ones, because diplomacy and workaday bureaucracy aren’t exciting to read about.
The dark side to this is that we know perfectly well that we are not the Chosen One, and that absolves us of striving to be great. Our job is to wait around for the special one to rise up.
But nobody’s coming, blossoms. Turns out we have to save ourselves.
