It was late. I'm always making mistakes like this when I'm tired, but oh this one stings. Last night, playing as US, I had all but assured my victory. Turn 10 I had an ugly hand, but I knew I could get through to final scoring with out losing too much ground. I had control of Central America. I had the China card. I had +13 points. What could go wrong?

Ortega!!!!!

How had I missed this? My whole world went up in flames as my soviet nemesis gleefully ignited nuclear war by couping Cuba and cackled like a Bond villain. Will it ever stop hurting? Probably. But I will never forget.

I had busted in with OAS Founded. Just to rub salt in the wound, my opponent also had Central American Scoring in his hand when I died.

US should try to control Cuba if at all possible. Once Fidel is played or buried for Good, Cuba is fair game.

I concur. But then US should read his cards very carefully before he plays them. Ortega! Ouch.
