This maybe true, but rather than have tons of house rules, we just decided
to scrap it. I mean, is it really that necessary? TIMO, the system worked
fine without it. After some heated arguments that seemed to come up as soon
as we tried using the psychic phase, we just decided it wasn't worth the
hassle, and agreed to scrap it. Maybe we were impatient, but we have had
many fun games without it, very few with it.
