I had a lovely first game of Cuba Libre against my girlfriend; her picking the insurgents, me the Mob and the government. Took 4 hours for the shortened game, which is not bad for a first game, and it was tense until the end.

The government was doing well due to some good cards increasing aid, but the increased resource costs of falling American support made itself felt in the last two propaganda rounds, and a General Strike event in the last round killed all chances for a government win.

The 26 July Movement had trouble coming out of the Sierra Maestre, and started gaining momentum too late; despite a few rounds of succesful Terror attacks it didn't get its support over 12 by the end.

The Mob was doing so well it could do nothing but pass on the last three cards, but it still was comfortably over its victory limit, with 9 open casinos and 38 Resources.

On the other hand, the Directorio was doing well as well, with 13 Control at the end.

We reckoned it a tie, and we enjoyed ourselves immensely.

You're welcome. The small scale of the game is what does it for me, it plays fast and because you have little room you get to (inter)act from the very start.
