The Art of Passing

This list is inspired by one of my own games, which is currently in that "sending a query and crossing my fingers" stage.

This is a list of games in which players have the option to forgo a turn or action to which they are entitled, and by doing so, they receive some kind of explicit benefit.

This is not a list of games in which passing simply allows you to game the system. For example, passing during the building phase of Power Grid might be advantageous as it would help you secure an ideal place in the Turn Order; that doesn't fit this criteria. Whereas a game where passing first explicitly makes you the start player for the next round would fit.

I'm also ruling out game actions like the Prospector in Puerto Rico that just give you money; that's not actually passing.

Feel free to add!
