I quite like the idea of a gal where it operates as per normal but at random points in the round crazy things happen.
I.e All players in all fams just suddenly realise ALL Lasers on all planets have disappeared.
Or all figs disappear, perhaps every fam randomly gets unlimited moral for 2 days or something. random portals just get raised across the Gal.
The crazier the better.
I know this is probably not possible but thought it was a novel idea that could perhaps be investigated.
