The Coat of Arms of Clan Montgomery - Scotland. Yes, that's a woman with the head of a savage in her hand, and an anchor. No clue what it means, but it's cool.

Nice AAR, Jeff. Sounds like a pretty fast-playing, fun, game. Never heard of it until you posted. Thanks!

Russia can be an absolute beast if you let it get a couple of territories early. Last night we played a three player where I was Germany and my buddy Josh was England. Our third was Chris (another bud) playing Mother Russia, and he was getting scary big after turn two. The mistake that Josh and I made is not declaring war and STAYING at war with Russia. I was at one point able to reduce Russia to a 2, and if I'd kept at war, would likely have been able to reduce it to a one. Heck, if England had been able to help in the military dept. as well, we might have actually wrestled control of Russia from Chris. Thing is, he had four other countries at that point and might have been able to win anyway.

It's a great game, I'm really digging it Andrew!

Thanks, Robert. I'm glad to hear you guys are having fun.

Russia can indeed be a beast at times, but it has its flaws. Interestingly enough, the one and only time I have seen someone lose a starting Region was during an Ideology tournament at one of the big cons (I think it was GenCon). Mike Keller wrested control of Russia from the Communists, and won the game in the process.
