Hey guys, some good ideas in here. If anyone is interested, I am trying to start a tournament with a lot of these ideas, viewtopic.php?f=90&t=96367
such as winning the game by holding a percentage of overall territories, or the "capital" style that some of the board games use, and some other variations on the mission cards.
Right now, the only way to run some of these is with specific maps and the admin scoring the game, but it might be a good way to play test a few and get some more real data out there.
Also, now that we have manual deploy option, there could be games where everyone agrees to start from one territory, and see how they can spread, or at least everyone can pick a capital city before the game, and if they lose that territory they lose the game.
Some problems I have run into is that it can be hard, even when using the game log, to keep track of these. Some are impossible without "gentleman's rules". I think a few more option types would be a nice addition to the site.
