[Inspired by Paul Harrington's "How to lose at Power Grid"]

Given my strategic acumen, I'll add a note or two after every game!

1) Keeping a Fire/Ambush card to use the ambush, only to have your opponent overstack the melee.

2) Wait to lay the smoke after you start moving, so that you can cover the perfect hex, only to break before that (and lose you boxed movement).

Ditto. Exactly when to pop Smoke is often one of the hardest decisions to make in the game.

Put some well place smoke counters to protect my troops heading to the far edge for victory points. While they were still in the open a breeze came by and blew them away to leave my exposed troops to deadly enemy fire, no survivors.

Haha! Yeah and I was the benefactor of such event. My infantry gun that I recently got from Hidden Unit wiped out 2 squads and his leader because of this. His morale was down but found out later that the game was NOT over and it was still anyone's battle. Good times indeed.
