I need some feedback on the first (ok - 4th if you count garage made board games
) game I've created, Galactic Council.
The current site (found at http://bit.ly/ZXemhn
) is a working prototype for a much larger vision, a community driven game website where members are encouraged to try their hand at card, rule, lore, and content creation - all under the umbrella of the game universe's lore (each player represents a member of the Galactic Council, battling other members for territory and resources and voting on how such battles are played out.)
I've built the game's framework using web technology (HTML5, php, jquery, ajax), allowing for faster prototyping, frequent updating, and a bevy of stat tracking. This means that you don't need to download anything to play the game (not even flash), just grab an up-to-date version of Chrome, FireFox, or Internet Explorer and start playing. This is one of my design philosophies - allow players access to their player accounts anywhere, on any browser-capable device.

I am super serious about this project, I am dedicated to creating a game environment that is directed by and for the community that plays it. I would appreciate any feedback - if it would keep you from coming back to the site, I'd like to know about it so I can fix it. A concept like this just won't work without happy & contributing players!
Thanks for your time guys,
