Hi,
I, as probably everyone else, noted, that there are quite famous persons depicted on the cards of this game, though I don´t know each of them.
Please help identify all of them:
(I will fill in the gaps in this first post in another colour, until it is complete.)

green 6: Pinochet
green 5: nameless infantry (which country?)
green 4: nameless policeman and demonstrator?
green 3: nameless mercenary? (which troop?)
green 2: nameless? Vietcong soldier
green 1: Che Guevara

pink 6: Joseph-Désiré Mobutu
pink 5: Fidel Castro
pink 4: Ajatollah Khomeini
pink 3: Ho Chi Minh (right) and General Giap (left)
pink 2: Lech Walesa
pink 1: nameless hippies/students?

yellow 6: ?
yellow 5: Abd al-Aziz ibn Saud
yellow 4: nameless worker?
yellow 3: nameless spokesman?
yellow 2: Jack Ruby
yellow 1: nameless worker?

blue 6: nameless cameramen?
blue 5: nameless hosts? from Armed Forces Radio and Television Service
blue 4: Prawda (OK, not a person..)
blue 3: nameless telephone operator?
blue 2: Mother Theresa
blue 1: Jane Fonda

"nameless" of course does not mean that they don´t have names, but that they are not important persons of history.
"?" could be removed as well

Any help would be nice.
Have fun.

The photo of CIA Master Spy "Hillburger" looks an awful lot like Elliot Richardson.

It indeed does...
But I was thinking of the cards, not the agents.
Maybe we could broaden this thraed a bit to also include the agents, but I think they might not have been actual agents...

Blue 6 looks like it's coverage of MLK in Washington.
Blue 5 would be some hosts from Armed Forces Radio and Television Service

Green 4 I'm guessing Kent State.

Well, they're probably moderately famous, broadcasting to the armed forces. But few would have known what they would have looked like.

Event Cards

Nobel Peace Prise: Henry Kissinger
Live Benefit: Bob Dylan, Joan Baez
East West Pact: JFK Nikita

Nation Cards

There is a mistake.
In the Greece card, The country in the north of Greece is wrong. Appart from having a wrong name (Makedonia is not a name accepted by the UN, or by Greece for that matter FYROM is the temporary name) the country didn't even exist, it was part of Yugoslavia

Edit, for some reason I cannot make a new post so I write my reply here

From Wikipedia:
Quote:
Most United Nations member countries have abandoned the provisional reference [FYROM] and have recognised the country as the Republic of Macedonia instead. These include four of the five permanent UN Security Council members—the United States, Russia, United Kingdom and the People's Republic of China; several members of the European Union such as Bulgaria, Poland, and Slovenia; and over 100 other UN members.

But of course it was part of Yugoslavia during the cold war.

You know that a quotation from wiki is not actually an very scientific one, do you?

Republic of Macedonia is not a name accepted by the UN, it still uses the FYROM until the issue is resolved:

http://search.un.org/search?ie=utf8&site=un_org&output=xml_n...

[url]http://www.un.org/apps/news/test/story.asp?NewsID=28989&Cr=m...=[url]

[/url]http://www.un.org/apps/news/test/story.asp?NewsID=31227&Cr=m...=[/url]

The UN still names the country FYROM in the official documents.

Sorry for being overbearing (is this a right expression ?) but wiki CAN provide (intentional or unintentional) misinformation.

Anyway this is another discussion and I do not want to derail this thread.

Excuse me for the hijack

Of course I do! But what is untruth in this quotation:

There is nothing about acceptation of name "Macedonia" by UN.

I only hope one day we will live in united Europe, without borders and conficts like this.

Best regards!

You are of course correct. But still out of context it could be misleading into thinking that this IS in fact the official name of the country.

Amen to that. If only we could really achieve that. My opinions on the matter though might be too radical to expose. I only hope that one day will come that all the people of the Balkan nationalities and religions won't be restricted by the borders and politics and will be able to live together in the same cities, side by side as it once was...not perfect but maybe better

(see Salonica: city of ghosts, or Smyrna: Lost paradise)
