If the player who had missed their turn had showed up and done it, then the previous player would have been able to do their turn anyway.

If one person misses a turn, at the start of the next round any one is allowed to play... This leaves the possiblitity of someone taking a double turn... I think the team of the person who took the last turn should not be able to take a turn untill the other team takes a turn

Ex. In a three player freestyle game, I finish my turn second, and the third player misses their turn. I get punished by being the last person to take a turn and not being able to play once their missed turn is finished.
I know anyone can miss a turn, not just ?'s, but it seems to be them more often than not. My suggestion is either:
A. Code the game to not punish the person who took the last turn prior to any missed turn. This is a simple change (ok, I don't know that it's a simple code change, but it's a small change) that doesn't punish a player who finishes their turn earlier than other players.
B. Limit new players from freestyle play (They are probably going to get their arses whooped anyway if they aren't up to speed on Tools and Enhancements and leave frustrated.) I know this one is unlikely to happen, but would help.

I understand the abuse on 2 player games. Was a victim of it. Agree with what is in place.
In this case the "fix" created another problem because of deadbeats...mostly ?'s playing freestyle games. All I'm suggesting is keeping ?'s from freestyle games or setting the game up so that if someone misses a turn...it doesn't punish someone other than that player. How is it fair to punish the guy who finished his turn second because of the missed turn by the third player???

But I'm not talking about taking away the punishment for the player that missed the turn, I'm talking about taking away the punishment for the player that played his turn appropriately.
