Considering who goes last is randomly determined at the start of the game, how is it a loophole? The only way there could be a problem is if everyone played exactly the same and kept even round after round.

The possile values for this new game option are None, 20 Rounds, 50 Rounds or 100 Rounds.

With round limits, the game will automatically finish at the end of the specified round. The winner will be the surviving player with the most troops. If there is a tie, it will be broken based on the most regions. If there is still a tie, the winner is selected based on join order. This option is great for avoiding stalemates on no spoils games and can add some spice to the game as the deadline approaches, forcing the big guys to fight it out and giving the little guys a chance!

Thanks to steelplayin for suggesting this!

Enjoy :mrgreen:

It's not who goes last, it's what order they joined the game. So if I was the one to start it and there was a tie, I would win.

Well done...great option that opens up a lot of options for players, especially those that enjoy no spoils.

Ignore any complaints on this. That is a moot point because you have 'No limits' as an option. If you don't like limits, then don't turn them on :)

They are saying whoever goes last has an advantage because they get to see the troop counts on their turn and end it accordingly. So, whoever is last in the 20th round, has an advantage if the Round limit is on.

Nice on lack - this could be handy.

Would have been poerfect for tournament games if there was a 30 rounds option?

Would have liked the option for a game to be a 'Draw' when the limit is reached (i.e. no winner - no points)

<in response to an earlier post>

i can't see any value at all in this for tournaments as TO's were already able to dictate a game ends at a certain round.
