Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
that this model can be solved rather simply by saying that each departing couple has to pay (or receive) compensation at a pre-agreed rate - likely equal to the price of a standard baby-sitting session per token in deficit (surplus) it has when it leaves.

That gives a stable value to the tokens and allows people to worry less about being below 20 temporarily (and even lets them choose on occasion to pay rather than use a token, or vice versa).

What am I missing?
