I just finished playing my third game of Empires in America, and as last time, I just quit the game rather than meeting the game's requirements

I really love the feel, the theme, the mechanics (a nifty recurring SoS vibe I love in Zulu and Zeds), but I really find the game to be a drag, and even though I'm not "playing the mechanics" but rather am in a "decision mode" now, I just keep looking at the draw pile, then the recycle one, and shigh at every Housekeep...

I can't get my finger on what exactly keeps me down like that, because I love managing my Leaders (love fiddling with the battalion and reputation markers laugh ), I still read flavor, I try to use the Action cards at the right moment, sometimes cursing fate when the next historique phase brings a new menace I could've thwarted with a discarded card...

Please, help me identify what goes wrong laughcry

You need to have a nice bottle of wine and some cheese and bread as you play through this...
