from the only game with extreme requirements.

I wonder if there's interest in populating that space: the "needs a ton of stashes" space that MegaVol and Stacktors inhabits? Looking at the wiki, it appears that less than 20% of the games on it require more than 5HOUSE, and half of those are six stashes, leaving 10% at the 7+ stashes range (notably ZERO at the 8-stash level: need to make a MegaVolcano page, it would seem; or at least link to it from What Can I Play).

Perhaps that could be a design restriction, next year, for the "old school": require at least eight transparent colors? Advanced Homeworlds, anyone? RAMbots++? (Yes, I'd be rolling Stacktors!, what of it?!)
