Yeah we're much more of a casual website, and our traffic is too low, to make those features make sense. My online community making is focused more on removing barriers to posting than adding to them, and I think a problem with a lot of these ideas is the high barrier to entry. Are people going to want to post so much that they put up with them? Worth experimenting with, though.

Rethinking the game to use drawing cards from a standard deck split into black and red cards.

Black cards are drawn and kept for when the judge finds you the funniest, and red cards are drawn and kept when you're most controversial. Like before, Consequences are a 50/50 change to get a strike (or two if you're a double winner), and three strikes total means you're Canceled, which also works the same as before.

Task execution order: black card effect -> red card effect -> Consequences

Black Card Effects:
(♠️, ♣️) 1-5: Add 5 to the card value and add that to your score.
(♠️, ♣️) 6-10, J, Q: Add the card value to your score. Jacks is 11, Queens is 12.
(♠️, ♣️) K : Quote dunk - If you did not also get the red card: Gain 15 points, and player with the red card loses 10 in addition to whatever they get from their card. If you have both cards: choose a player to lose 10 points.
♣️ A : Unexpectedly wholesome - 10 points, plus 5 for every strike you have.
♠️ A : Milkshake ducked - Gain 10 points, but lose fifteen points for every strike you have.

Red Card Effects:
(♥️, ♦️) 1-5: Add the card value to your score.
(♥️, ♦️) 6-10: Double the card value, but this card has a Consequences effect.
(♥️, ♦️) J: Standom - If you did not also get the black card: Gain 15 points, and the player with the blue card loses 15 points. If you have both, gain 10 points and 5 points for every strike. Either way, flip for Consequences.
(♥️, ♦️) Q : Offensively funny / no one liked that - If you also gained the black card this round, add 10 to the amount you gained from the black card and double the total, then add that to your score. If you did not gain the black card, gain no points, and flip for Consequences.
(♥️, ♦️) K : Unexpectedly vicious - If this is your first red card, gain 10 points and then 3 for every Black card you have. If you have gotten a red card and are not canceled, lose 5 points, and flip for Consequences. If you have been canceled, gain 10 points plus 5 for every strike.
♦️ A : Getting away with it - Gain 20 points, no Consequences
♥️ A : 14.87.233.76 - Immediately get two strikes

Video games are real universes and if you reset them that means what you did didn't happen. I've only seen two endings of Undertale
