The Classic Game needs a rule change to prevent an excess number of players flocking to one city for the end-game.
In my current game, the largest city has 232 players, 2nd is 141. My city, which finished first in the regular game, has 59.
The city with 232 players has run away with the endgame. It's very discouraging.
I know that the game encourages players to start all spread out with the encouragement of 100 gold. It's not working.
Some limit on the number of players moving to a city must be instituted.
The Classic version is no longer fun to play now that people have figured out a way to win easily.
