Why not *really* break the game? Play each "turn" as a "round" like
in Nanofictionary. All plays are made as quickly or as slowly as each
player wants, but when you're out of plays for a round you have to 
put a finger on the deck and wait until everybody else is done before 
go to the next turn and start drawing. At the end of each "turn", all
limits take effect on all players. If you fulfill the current goal, 
you have to say "goal!" before somebody covers it with a new one.

This variation only works with players who really know how to play
and can be trusted to keep it honest. =^>
