Ali: As I recall, that OCC game was mainly a contest between solo and Elephant. The rest of us were OCC amateurs/newbies, watching and learning. We switched to the best save in the group every 20 turns or so, which insured against catastrophes, like your barbarian incident, without actually allowing reloading [though I think solo didn't usually follow this "rule"]. To be fair to yourself, and get a valid comparison, I'd suggest some limited reloading - like once every 20 or 30 turns. If you want any saves, I could post a few randomly chosen ones from solo or Elephant. I think I still have 10 or so. Or make a request, and I'll look for something that fits.
