Is it possible for different versions to have a different gameid? For example, Tigris & Euphrates is gameid 42, but could Euphrat & Tigris (different version) be gameid 42v2 or something?

I regularly mine data with the XML API, and gameid was my unique identifier for each game. Now it isn't.

Versions do have their own IDs. Look at the URL for each version's "View" link. The problem is that the XML API needs to be updated for "stock" (non-custom) version data.
