Of course. But:

1. g2 is a ways off.
2. Some players who didn't get in on turn 1 would like the
opportunity to do so in another game.
3. Some people want to be playing multiple games of Olympia.
4. I can't make significant alterations to g1.

Also, I could charge more for the "new & improved" version to encourage
people to keep playing Economy Olympia. :-)

Not sure what kind of "scenarios" you have in mind. Map-editing is
about the only task that's wholly separate from the code.
