Cool. We've got "4 teams", which can be shuffled, as it stands right now. So there is an interest in these games!

Additionally, seeing the reactions, the consensus is to count the scores of both team members to determine who won.

Yeah, I think it should be combined_ score=win. That way, even a not so experienced player can pair with somebody that is and potentially win. Thus improving (hopefully) the players skills and enthusiasm for playing.

So the scoring is to be by combined scores of players in a game rather than just whichever player is 1st, their team wins?

I think that makes sense. Otherwise, you'd have lots of "scapegoat" wins.

First post has been modified.
Welcome to all newly signed up people ;)

And I've added a section "winning" that explains the highest combined team score wins.

2 Players who have a ceasefire nuking eachothers cities in a multiplayer game to ensure their scores are level and cant go down any further whilst other players scores can still go down.

It was used by Shinygerbil and Bonsai (EU and USSR) in my Round 2 Unofficial Tournament game to great controversy, knocking out Radiant Caligula and other players. I myself got through despite their tactics.
