Some people even stall involuntarily. One of my opponents is very (and I
mean VERY) talkative. He likes to talk about what his Runners would do
if they were real, if they had certain Gear, if he had certain cards,
what he would do with certain combos when hed get them and so on and on
and on... You can shut him up for one turn, and he starts all over the
next - hes a tongue hydra, if you get the idea.
Ill suggest the rounds vs. time limit at the next tourney, but I bet
its going to be rejected.
