I recently purchased this game and I am really looking forward to trying it out. There is, however, one thing that I do not really care for, and that is games with unnatural endings. Such as this games seems to have. Why does the game has to end after "only" six years? Why not just play until one player has aquired enough runes in order to win? Is there a story behind the six-year limit?
Personally, I like it when games drag out for loooong times. That's why I like TI (without meaning to copmpare these games). If the six-year limit is put there in order to make the game shorter, why not put it in as an alternative rule for people that like shorter games instead?
And finally, what do you other Runewars-gamers do? Do you play until one player has enough runes in order to actually win the war, or do you end the game aftyer six years without a true winner?
