[messages] [Module General Discussion] Other player can't activate tiles

I have a really weird problem with Burgle Bros. (I created the module)
that I can't figure out. The game has tiles that you can select with
SHIFT-CLICK. once selected, any player should be able to activate one
of two functions - Move into tile (CTRL Y) or Peek into Tile (CTRL T).
Both do essentially the same thing - unmask the tile and report the
action. Since this is a coop game, I did not intentionally try to
prevent anyone from doing anything. Everything works great when I test
solo. When I join an Internet game, one player or the other (it is not
the same each time) becomes the "master" and can activate tiles, and the
other player cannot. I had a feature I put in for testing that provided
activation of the trait "RETURN TO DECK". I have noticed that the
player that is not the master does not have this trait show up when they
shift-click the tile.
Any ideas how to track this down? Is there a variable I can expose (and
possibly change) that says who can flip a tile? If I can see "who has
control" and provide a control to change this to the next player, fine.
But right now it sort of guessing game as to who can flip a tile.
Thanks for any feedback!
