  • Section: Rulebook outcomes
    Each rulebook has three named outcomes that we can use to control how the game proceeds. The outcomes are:
    Exit: The answer to the question is discarded and the game proceeds as normal. Usually, we will have used the answer to set other conditions in the game before we use exit. The exit outcome automatically advances the game by one turn.
    Retry: The answer to the question is discarded but we remain in question mode awaiting another answer. Usually, this will be because the answer to the question is not a valid answer.
    Parse: The answer to the question is not disregarded and the question mode ends leaving the answer to be parsed as normal. Usually, we use this where there is an open question.
