Repository - Adjacent Fields

The Adjacent Fields rule adds an obstacle to collaborating on the road to complete metadata repositories.

In this example, the team succeeded in collaborating to create a complete record in round 1 and received the complete record (4) and collaboration (2) bonuses. If Red selects an F in the second round, the Adjacent Fields rule controls where F can play: 

If Adjacent Fields is Yes, i.e. allowed, Red must select the F in the second record

If Adjacent Fields is No, i.e. not allowed (default), Red must select the F in the third record. This creates seven missing fields and has a negative effect on the metric.

The Adjacent Fields Repository Rule controls where selected metadata elements can be added to the repository. If adjacent fields is yes (simple game), Red can add an F to record 2 in the second round. If adjacent fields is no, and red selects an F, it must be played in record 3.
