The Soviets liberated most of Europe, but every effort everywhere else was undone by the meddling capitalist pigs.

We're actually still in the middle of this game. Aram (US) has survived into the Mid War and defrayed my early VP lead. I should have known better than to think I could get a leg up on him in area scoring and just played for the long game. I actually hate having those Scoring cards, because I assume I have to build up in those areas that round, even if my cards don't align with it. I passed up Fidel Castro (a swing of 6 Influence in Central America!) for some piddly attempt to achieve Dominance in Africa that Aram undid on his next turn. I ended up netting nothing in Africa and Asia that round, and then of course drew Central America scoring the next round. (I also had the card allowing +1 to Coup attempts in Central/South America in the previous round.)

Meanwhile, Aram's been card-comboing all over the place. He took the China card from me with a card and then played another card that gave him 2 VP for it. The next round, he drew Southeast Asia scoring--perfect time to have the China Card!

He also did the right thing with his scoring cards--played them for 0 VP as soon as possible and moved on to other things. I should have done the same thing.

To be continued...
