I'm going to assume that at this time, this game was the latest hotness, if the number of thumbs these reports were garnering is any indication. In the case of this report, however, it's not just because it was the lateness hotness, but also because it's a superbly written account. If you want an easy to read and relatively short tutorial on gameplay, this is the report for you. Excellent work!

I think most of what I said about the Beethoven prize winner this week also applies to our Bach prize winner. This tutorial/strategy guide is mainly written from the perspective of the Democrats in this game, but nevertheless it's a wealth of information for those interested in this still-popular game. Great job!
