It appears that interest in the friendly Civilization III contest is waning. There is absolutely no activity in the discussion threads and very few submissions. It seems to me that the model with two parallel games per quarter has failed. I think we should either have more games or fewer. Actually, it seems to be easier to find willing game modifiers and designers than active players. So perhaps we should play more often, but also more focussed on just one active game at a time? I suggest that we go back to having a new game every month, but just one, either Play the World or Conquests. We could have each variant every second month. We could let the games stay open for two weeks into the following month. That way, we would have news and things to talk about twice per month and still only have 50% more games in total. There would also only be a two-week hiatus between games of either variant for those of us who play only one of them. What do you think?
