Give them their full score... their is no indication that glory per game is capped... its just like in other games when you hit the top of the chart and just circle around. If you feel you must truly display it, then put their score on 3 and mentally note they have surpassed the 30 glory market.
May I also add... HOLY COW! You must be pretty late in the game to score that much. Its also pretty unbelievable that the glory target is capped (24) and someone is able to jump over 24 all the way to 33. Not saying its imposssible... just HIGHLY improbable. Must have been some huge milestone involved.
Yup! The full score literally puts that player 1 glory ahead of the 2nd place player. And if they only receive 30 then the 2nd player would be first. So it really determines who is emperor. Players don't really care one way or the other, but I thought there was a discussion on here at one point that addressed this specifically. I never thought it would matter, so didn't keep a mental note about it though.
