1) the team that has first turn waits 12 hours before starting the turn.
2) if the team going second indicates that they have a snap, the first turn may be taken sooner without penalty.
3) if the first turn is taken before either 12 hours has elapsed, or the other team has indicated they have a snap, then the offending team will post in game chat exactly what happened during that turn, and what exactly the other team could have seen had they had the opportunity to see the board before the turn was taken.
4) the game is played out; if at the completion of the game, it is discovered that the information the offending team gave was incorrect, the offending team is ejected from the tournament. If the information given was correct, then there is no penalty.
This allows for accidental starts, and for personal schedules that do not permit playing at a later time. Obviously this should not be abused - maybe a "TO reserves the right to boot a team that repeatedly violates the 12 hours fog rule" statement would cover willful abuse...
Yeah, I can add the 12 hour fog rule. I like the way you have spelled it out, so I'll just use your description in the first post. PM sent to all participants informing them of the change.
It will be enforced as of the first round.
