Ok, here is another property:

all the records for N<27 are multiple of 3.

Does that mean that the tops should alway be multiple of 3 ?

I don't think so, but I don't have a proof here. However, if you consider
smaller values of C (the number of colors) the property you suggest breaks
at some point, for example for C = 3, you get 3,9,20... and for all C < 10
(as far as my solutions for smaller C are in fact optimal) there is a point
where it stops being divisible by 3 and it comes faster than for C=10, so it
is more reliable. I have some ideas on where this happens but that would be
a longish post and also probably inappropriate for an unfinished contest.

Dwell not on close decisions, and thus, when you play against dwellers, you
