I concur with Michael. At the start of the judging, I had two games pegged
to be on top, and this was one of them. (Not to knock the judges, however;
I didn't take anywhere near as much time looking at the games as they
did.) The shifting alliances rule is one of those 'Duh, why didn't I
think of that?' ideas. :-) Good way to stop the two-gang-up-on-one
scenario.

By the way, Michael, my other favorite from the group was Wizard's War. I
think it's safe to say so now, since both games are out of the running.
