[Icehouse] Martian Coasters Chaturanga - End-of-game/win conditions?

The current end-of-game condition for Martian Coaster Chaturanga makes
it unsuitable for either Experiment-style play or tournament play - the
game can just be dragged out far too long.

Most other end-of-game conditions that I can think of are either
manipulable by one or more players in ways that I consider unfair, or
place the player who establishes the end-of-game at a severe
disadvantage in determining the win.

From this I conclude that both my end-of-game condition and my win
condition need to be rethought.

I turn to the Icehouse Brain Trust for ideas.  Please?
