Charles, you happen to take things in directions I hadn't thought of going.

I had the idea of starting a new game.  HOWEVER, say C defeats B, who is playing A.  If there is a way for C to then play with B's army against A, then that would be another interesting spin.

With this, I am asking people to take this and run with it, and see if we can come up with a new format that would fit what we can't handle well now.  I know someone else mentioned the problem with stalling by someone who is losing.  I proposed a Bronstein clock solution for this, addition to the counting of wins also impacting this.
