Here is what has been changed (please read the OP):
As a challenge: Whoever is farthest away from the correct number will be required to sit out for the next round. However, a player that is required to sit out for a round, will not be required to sit out (be "Banned") for any longer than a 24 hour period. Even in the event that a round last for 24 hours or longer. This will allow the game to remain active and for player-experience to remain more user-Friendly.
Any player who is the winner of a round and is absent from the game for 24 hours, their turn is forfeit and the person with the next closest number is winner for the next round.
This makes it so that the game is allowed to progress.
