Just bought 1960 and tried it out solitaire. I discovered that for both sides I concentrated heavily on just New York because it is the state with the most votes thus neglecting almost everything else in the game.

So I'd like to ask you: is this also a common problem in 2-player games that everything resolves only around who gets New York? And how can you avoid it? Thank you in advance!

I can't say I've played a lot, but I've never found this to be a problem. The West tends to get ignored, but not the rest of the map.

The same could be asked about European Control in Twilight Struggle.

Sure, you can concentrate on it, but if you do so to the exclusion of the rest of the board you may find yourself losing in a landslide.

I've seen it in a lot of the games I've played, but everytime somebody has used the New York centric strategy it has cost them the game.
