Well, you wouldn't let people in halfway, I would think, or you let them in 
with an amount of energy equal to the current average on the board, and if 
they do win they get a smaller prize (perhaps X percent of the prize, where 
X is the energy they started with). As far as long-running conflicts, I 
imagine feuds would make things plenty interesting across multiple rounds.
