The GOTM SG games seem to be quite popular, and so I have decided that I will try to run them periodically. In an effort to make the games as accessible as possible I am opening this discussion thread so that people that might like to play can voice their opinions and help me to set up the kinds of game that people want, rather than just the games that I want. I would appreciate some feedback, and have listed some discussion points below, but there is no need to restrict yourselves to these. 1. How often should a new game be started? 2. Who should pick the teams and how? 3. Should teams be able to stay together and even have custom team names? If yes, then would a league table be a good idea? 4. Should games be exactly duplicated, or should they be changed with different playable civ, starting locations, respun resources etc? 5. Should victory conditions be specified? Would it be too extreme to specify a game as always war or 5 city challenge for example? We could even say that a game had to be played as either 5CC or AW and let the individual teams decide which they want to do... and which will give them the best score. 6. What rules should be used? 7. How will the game to be played be chosen.. by poll or by me or should we just play them in order from GOTM 1 up or something else? 8. How can we get more people playing? Should we make the games easier, or can we apply a handicap in some way? Maybe the GOTM staff would help promote the comptetition. 9. Would a game converted to C3C be interesting, and are there enough people interested with the software? 10. Finally, who should run it? I'm willing to do it, but I fully accept that I might not be the best person for the job. I won't take offense. I've been thinking about this quite a lot recently and have some views of my own, but other people will have better ideas. I just want to know what they are please.
