Chalk up one IRL occurrence in a 4 player game this weekend. My second character got stuck in a scrum on the other side of the board while my first skipped the last third of the game. She did have a lot of influence to steal, so I definitely made her a target.
I suppose my main concern is that it's not a particularly fun effect. I think the daze mechanic is a great way to impede a character without taking away actions. I was a bit surprised to see what amounts to "skip your turn"
