Yea, the worker thing can trip people up, but I decided it was easier to always remind players to make a worker (especially new players).
I have no problem with others creating an alternate sheet, but I won’t be creating features or updates for them. Armed pirates update instructions are perfectly good though.
if you want to break your actions into phases, you could add lines to the actions section of the spreadsheet, such as
Get Paid 3
which would result in the following being generated
Get Paid - ($3)
Actions! - ($1)
Worker - ($0)
Discard 3, Draw 2
