This is a 2 player hold. You can play it, but you can't complete the hold. It's not supposed to be completed.

Can this be uploaded as a real hold? -_-

Neat idea!

Without an ending condition (exit stairs, Go To Level Entrance end hold, etc.), your work can't be published to the Holds board. You could add a some stairs to the north of the level entrance. Or you could leave it on the Architecture board forevermore. Whatever works for you.

There's a few places you could take this project that people might like:
This would be a lot of fun for multiple people to play. You could try running a contest where people play against each other.
If you wanted a larger audience, you could host a tournament on YouTube or Twitch. This forum has plenty of members who can record and stream their gameplay. That could become a fun forum tradition.
You could upload a video of you playing with someone else, hot-seat style.
For the hold itself, you could incorporate more zany game ideas, such as a third player, or a non-rectangular game board, or whatever other neat conditions you can think of.
Write an AI! The scripting here is already super slick, but if you could program a reasonably challenging opponent to play against, you'd add a lot to your game.

I decided to try the single-player version. For those of you who don't know what that means, it's where I spend way too long making pretty pictures:

I concur! This hold idea is pretty sweet!

I agree with the making variations. Having other boards that aren't just rectangles or different varieties of how to play would be a cool addition (If it's multiple rooms, then that's fine too.)

If you wanted to get this hold published officially, you could develop an AI that when defeated, the room will be cleared and you can finish the hold. Add in the varieties and you would have a fun and unique hold!

I hope to see you continuing to work on this idea!
