GSC in Multiplayer Mode

Multiplayer mode is a feature i'd love to improve GeoStoric Challenge with. 
The single player mode is in itself a kind of multiplayer because every score is saved in the high scores, which means that everyone's actually playing against everyone. But i've been thinking about a multiplayer part of the game that has its own high score. In this mode, up to 2 players can play at the same time against everyone else or against another 1 or 2 players. 
This means that the game will get 1v1 and 2v2 modes. 
When two players are playing together, one of the players control the UFO while the other player answers the questions. 
Instead of having 5 random locations to guess like the normal 'singleplayer' version, this version of the game has a countdown - from, for example, 5 minutes. The team then has to score as many points as possible within the 5 minutes in the same locate-and-answer-level.
Teams can choose to challenge other teams in 5 minute duels where the objective is the same as described above, but the teams are then compared to each other after the 'match'. All scores are saved in the high scores for this game version. 

The multiplayer mode will not be the good old split-screen style which means that the teams wont be able to see each other while playing, but all scores and stats will be compared and shown to both teams after each match. 

This is a first idea of a multiplayer version of the game. I'd love to hear from you guys what you think about it or if you have great ideas for it.
