Berzelius: I like the idea of a competition among us! I think it should be week long competition and if we do it, it should be sometime in January because of the holiday season. To be fair, like Kudlelv said, we should only count the highest scoring game each person submits. But also to be fair to the ones playing for fun, we could also have a competition for the most number of quality games submitted, I would like some better ideas for this though.
As for prizes, I really don't have any ideas at this point, I'll let you guys decide on that
Cumberburg: Congratulations on your game! I always like to leave my victory options open in case I get stuck in a situation that you describe. Fuels Chief's advice to help that problem is the way to go if you want to go the conquest route, but it will still take sometime.
Best of luck,
