Alright let's try this again. Hopefully the second support check turns out better than the first.

Had a crazy session with my mom on Memorial Day. She (communists) led at the end of turn 1 with -3pts (heal our bleeding wound) but I destroyed her in turn 2 controlling Hungary at the beginning and dominating Poland at the end. I upped the stakes in each power struggle and rolled 5/6's for both columns, completely pushing her out of both scoring cards. The session took 35 mins and was the most lopsided I've seen.

She rates the game a 9.

Played (and recorded the play) with my wife last night, managed a Democrat win in six turns. Between all my playthoughs, I've still never seen the late year cards mixed into the deck!

Well good news Jared, we are going to have a Late Year scenario included in C3i Magazine. You will be able to finish the scenario in about an hour and see all the Late Year events in action, like Kremlin Coup! and The Chinese Solution. Who knows, someone might reach the last space on the TS track with the Democrat and achieve Political Pluralism in China.

On Thursday this week, my gaming pal and I made it to turn 9. The Late Year cards were to little too late for the Democrat (me) to break through the Communist SP's built up in East Germany. The Communist won by an automatic victory and erased all gains I had made in the early in the year.

I have to say 1989 is an absolutely fantastic game! We're just beginning to tap the vast potential and we look forward too MANY more games.

This is very exciting news. I will look forward to the next C3i issue with much anticipation! wow

Thank you very much!

In return, I think it is only fair that I write up a session report with plenty of pictures! I'll write it up the next chance I get to play. (Fingers crossed for this Thursday )
