I'm collecting game end scores for statistical analysis. If you have game results to share, please send to me. I'm especially interested in turn-specific scores per nation, but end scores (per nation) help, too.
Currently the statistics are available in eurobrit Yahoo group, but I'll upload a version here, too.
Here's quick summary of current results (median of 24 games). Note that color totals are median of color totals, not sum of invidual nation scores.

Well, see my session report for that, or the one by Kon Wacht. But why are you interested in these statistics in the first place? Perhaps the answer to that question leads to improved input.
The stats are sometimes useful for devising nation bidding methods (as the one I recently posted on Eurobrit).
And sometimes people want to know how well they're doing compared to the "average".
At any rate, quite a few people have collected masses of scoring stats for B1, and Pekka's decided to do so for B2.
To know how well to do compared to average, and since the score of different colors accumulates as different pace it helps to figure out if someone is doing well or not.
Many other reasons Lew already mentioned.
