Charles, thanks for the comment.  The idea was to try to get abstract strategy games in a format that would work for gameshows.  One could also have the whole Vox concept work as a suggestion for two players in battles with one another, and he Vox game being a side game an audience can play.

We do need to get this implemented, and played.  It is, of course for 3 or more players.  No sure how you could sanely do two.  I do have ideas for a 3-5 player specific version that I should be able to try.  I will likely use a simple game like Hex or Gomoku, as the base game to see how well the voting works.
