Yesterday, we were in the final stages of setting up the board to begin a 6-player game... when a 7th member of our group arrived.

Instead of scrapping the game to do something else, we appointed the 7th player to a very important position - Chairman of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet, or Head of State.

As in the actual Soviet Union, the Head of State was a figurehead position with no actual power, but significant ceremonial duties. Under our system, this august and distinguished servant of the people had the duty of making the annual health rolls for all politicians.

This eminent figurehead proved very adept at killing members of the Politburo with these rolls (13 dead by the end of the game), and greatly enjoyed observing the game's general carnage from his elevated position as Head of State.

I think he should also have had the role of official 'waver', and be expected to stand, or wobble, up and wave in a manner that reflected the age and health of the current Party Chief.

An excellent idea! We'll do that it the situation occurs again in the future.
