The Case for an Annual “Quantum Games” Competition

Given that some benchmarks favor optimization strategies, some favor simulation, some focus on contrived theoretical tasks and others try to reflect real-world applications, some are great at 2-qubit gates but not at larger entanglements, etc., it unfortunately does not look like a universally accepted standard is going to be agreed upon in the near-future.  So instead, what if there were an annual contest like a global QC decathlon?
