Same game as before.

The mighty Soviet empire is on the brink of collapse, its puppet regimes in southern europe no longer sustainable, its return for resources squandered in the third world paltry, and its ideas outdated. President Ronald Reagan has rubbed salt into the wound by bombing a Soviet ally, Libya, while the world watches, and applauds. Only the growing alienation between the United States and China darkens the horizon of the American dream

It is the end of turn 10. Players* are preparing for final scoring. Military Ops by both sides were equal to reqiuirements, Defcon at 2. USSR has the China Card. USA has held Iran contra scandals, which is no longer relevant. VPs before final scoring are at +12. Both players are at stage 2 of the space race.

In Central America the USA controls seven countries. The USSR controls Cuba and Nicaragua, and Dominican republic is uncontrolled. The USSR gets 1 Vp for Prescence, 1 VP for control of battleground country (Cuba), and 1 VP for control of a country adjacent to the enemy superpower (Cuba), for a total of 3 VPs. The USA gets 3 Vps for Dominance and 2 VPs for controlling 2 Battleground countries. Net VPs+2 (+14)

In South America, the USA controls 5 countries (Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, Venuezuela and Columbia). The USSR only controls 1 country, Chile. USSR gets 2 Vps for Prescence and 1 VP for controlling a Battleground country, total 3. USA gets 5 Vps for Dominance and 3 Vps for battleground countries, total 8, net vps +5 (+19)

In Europe, the USA controls 9 countries (UK, France, Italy, West Germany, Poland, Czechslovakia, Hungary, Benelux, Denmark). The USSR controls 8 countries (Canada, Spain, Bulgaria, Yugoslavia, Greece, Rumania, East Germany, Austria) USSR gets 3 points for prescence, 1 for controlling a battleground country (East Germany), and 1 for controlling a country adjacent to the enemy superpower (Canada), for a total of 5. USA gets 7 points for dominance, 4 points for battleground countries, and 1 point for control of a country adjacent to the enemy superpower, total 12. net vps +7 (+26)

In Africa, the USA controls 7 countries (Algeria, Tunisia, Sudan, Ethiopia, Nigeria, Zaire, South Africa) The USSR controls 6 countries (Botswana, Zimbabwe, Angola, SE African States, Saharan States and Morocco). One country (Cameroon) is disputed. The USSR gets 1 point for Prescence and 1 point for battleground countries (Angola): total 2. The USA gets 4 points for Dominance and 4 points for battleground countries, total 8. Net Vps +6 (+32)

In the Middle East, the USA controls 5 countries (Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Iran). The USSR controls 5 countries (Libya, Saudi Arabia, Gulf States, Syria, Iraq). Both score 3 for Prescence and 3 for Battleground countries, Net Vps 0.

In Asia, the USA controls 7 countries (Pakistan, India, Thailand, Australia, Taiwan, South Korea and Japan) The USSR controls 8 countries (Afghanistan, Burma, Laos/Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, North Korea. Both get 3 Vps for Prescence. USA gets 5 Vps for Battleground countries, USSR gets 1. Net +4 Vps (+36). USSR has the China Card which is worth 1 VP. So overall score is +35, a convincing American victory.

All cards were dealt out at least once. *Players were me and me.

Yeah, hopefully! Chernobyl really hurt the Soviets. 'We' were playing using the 'Card Drafting' variant (see variants section). Turn 8 Soviets had first pick and chose Aldritch Ames. Next time I would probably go for Chernobyl. AA is not that useful when your opponent knows he is coming and can pick his cards to suit the moment...
