…and the scoresheet is under the machine so it makes it uncomfortable for anyone not playing the machine to check when a player is playing. Or when you’re bad at names and you’ve now lost track of the names of people who introduced themselves 20min ago. The “all players are responsible” is a better fit when starting the wrong number of players game than this situation.
