I love this game. My friends and I play it almost every night, and we really enjoy it. However, I do have one major suggestion.
We need a spectator mode.
* People should be able to make themselves a spectator at the beginning or join in the middle if a certain setting is turned on
* Spectators should be able to see the whole entire map and the levels of power and research done by players
This is just a rough mockup, but I do think it would really change the game. What are your thoughts?
