I've been thinking... could it be possible, if a few small modifications
were made to the rules, to allow one player to take several consecutive
turns while the other player is offline?

The idea is this (not very novel): Each player gets one turn each X
minutes. The number of turns you can play is stored, so when you log on
you can play Y turns then log off.

This would make long, drawn out games more feasible. It would probably
require a different ruleset (at least), to avoid complete overrun
during one player's consecutive turns. Railroad, air transport, etc would
probably have to go.
