it is already dealt with in Freestyle. that code could be used. an overlap is only possible if half of a players standard game turn (12 hours for casual) has elapsed.
It isn't dealt with in freestyle.
Player 3 doesn't take his turn until player 1 and 2 have taken their turn.
It goes to player 1 turn, who has already taken the turn. It goes to player 2's turn, who has already taken his turn. It goes to player 3's turn - who has a double turn. Unless he can't take his turn until player 1's turn starts again. Which won't be possible for 6 hours.
it happens in Freestyle all the time.
Player 3 takes a turn, goes to bed
Player 2 takes a turn followed by Player 1
Player 1 takes a turn followed by Player 2
Player 3 wakes to find he's had all his bonuses smashed
the rule is you can't have back to back turns unless 12 hours have elapsed.
I know how freestyle works. My point is that when player 3 is done his round 1 turn, players 1 and and are already done their round 2 turns. So player 3 can't take his round 2 turn until player 1 takes his round 3 turn. This is a problem.
One workaround is that player 1's turn becomes active as soon as
player 3's turn becomes active if, and only if
player 3 just finished a turn (i.e. skips the 6 hour phase). However, that still means that player 1 (and potentially player 2) are already done round 3 before player 3 even gets a chance to take his round 2 turn. This might also cause player 3 to consistently only get 12 hours to take a turn.
Either player 3 gets double turns, or player 1/2 get an extra round. Either way, its a bad situation. I think the optimum solution might be to not unlock player 2's turn until player 3 has gone, regardless of whether the 6 hours has elapsed.
I have often heard him say that he would not begin life again if he had to pay for it by his years at school. There is, he is accustomed to say, only one crime which is beyond pardon, the crime which poisons the pleasures and kills the smile of a child
