Rule Set Update D

Kevin and Stephen reflect on episodes 157, 158, and 159, then refresh the rule framework of BF with a change, removal, and addition. with a change, removal, and addition. Once again, we had to make a change on behalf of the audience (Please email us if you have a rule to suggest for next time!). We also cleaned up the formatting a bit and gave each rule a sexy short name. If you would like to submit a rule change suggestion, you may do so by following the Git process or emailing us. Cheers!
