To add a new mechanic in the database is not an easy thing. It can be a project that develops itself over the years, with boardgames using a particular mechanic getting released over time until there are enough of them to justify the creation of the mechanic itself.

In the last few years, we have seen something emerging: a lasting effect in the rules. In my opinion, this mechanic is different enough from everything we have in BGG to justify its inception in our database. Thus, I would like to ask for your help, fellow geeks, in order to make this geeklist live and expand, by adding every games that you know that could fit this definition:

Games with a lasting effect are games where a play may change rules for subsequent plays. These changes may be permanent, with the new/different rule added to the rulebook or written on the board or with a component that is trashed permanently. The changes can also last only for the duration of a campaign including several plays. In this case, the rules are reset when a new campaign begins.

I will start this geeklist with the few games I know. With your help, we can lobby for a Lasting Effect Mechanic!

Building on Risk Legacy change of rules, you write on the cards every time you win with it, making you immune to elimination from the card effects on subsequent games.

This one is more of the Campaign category of the lasting effects: from chapter to chapter, your character may evolve as you get equipment and experience.
