Curious where you plan on taking this that doesn’t devolve into kingmaking

Well, so far there’s no way to interact with other players, so there’s no way to kingmake. Not sure what it accomplishes, either, though.

shouldn’t be too hard to lock out the Factory from any pooling manuvers.

Not really sure where this is going. If we’re heading towards an Emperor victory condition, where if Jumble wins they can pick a leading or friendly player to ascend in their place, this feels like unfair competition.

If Jumble just wants to get their hands dirty and get a feel for the gameplay, doing so with 150% of some resources will be giving them an inaccurate perspective of that game.

against per Kevan’s second paragraph above – we can probably stop the Emperor’s bonus resources breaking anything, but it’s likely to give the Emperor a skewed perspective.
