I prefer starting off with Africa myself. Not that hard to protect once you've taken it, and then you can attack South America and expand the north of Africa border spilling in Europe. Once you're properly set up, you can attack North America from south and east.

Nah, I let others duke it out over the measly 2 extra armies, while I secure the 5 extra and Venezuela to prevent another player from fortifying SA which is my next conquest.

No competent opponent would let you keep north America for a full turn. It's only 3 defense points, but it can be reached easily from almost any other position on the board. As soon as you get it, everyone else will team up and gang fuck you.

Australia works because it's so remote and people can't justify blowing their whole strategy just to displace your 2 extra armies. I've also had luck just fucking about in Asia getting bonus armies because nobody cares to take the worthless territories from you unless you get the while continent. You can build a nice reserve that way if you can keep everyone else unbalanced.

While that's generally true, it becomes possible to play a NA strategy if someone is doing an Africa push, thus keeping SA and Europe busy.

Only if you're playing bad people. I'd let someone keep Africa for a while to stop North America, because Africa isn't very defensible.

It's a balance. If you're trying to keep South America against Africa, you may not be in a position to threaten the southern USA.

Devoid of the typical Putin obsession, conspiracy theorizing and demographic number crunching. Rosenberg actually travels within Russia, talks to real people, reports on ordinary life and media rhetoric. Good stuff.

Americans Claim Role in Yeltsin Win
Russia: Consultants say they spent months in Moscow secretly devising U.S.-style strategy.
July 09, 1996|ELEANOR RANDOLPH | TIMES STAFF WRITER

WASHINGTON — A team of American political strategists who helped Gov. Pete Wilson with his abortive presidential bid earlier this year said this week that they served as Russian President Boris N. Yeltsin's secret campaign weapon in his comeback win over a Communist challenger.

And while some Muscovites are debating whether the Americans saved Yeltsin's job or merely provided one voice among many working to revive the Russian president's political chances, the consultants have now emerged to give interviews about how they quietly peddled advice to Yeltsin's 36-year-old daughter and key advisor, Tatyana Dyachenko.

"I don't have candidates generally who are as responsive as Boris Yeltsin," said George Gorton, who worked for Wilson in 1994 and later ran Wilson's abortive bid for the GOP nomination. "Certainly not Pete Wilson."

Hired in February through a San Francisco firm with connections in Moscow, Gorton said that the team members never met Yeltsin. Instead, they sent their detailed, unsigned memos to his daughter. "We were told that we were formally retained as advisors to the Yeltsin family."

Although the Americans spoke no Russian and worked through translators, they began secretly laying out an American-style campaign to counter the public sentiment running against Yeltsin.

When they started, Yeltsin's approval rating was about 6%, and, as they told Time magazine, Josef Stalin had a higher positive rating in their polls. Yet last week, Yeltsin defeated Communist candidate Gennady A. Zyuganov by more than 13 percentage points.


The funniest part in all of this is that it was the US-backed Yeltsin who later named Putin his successor.

"There are only two tragedies in life: one is not getting what one wants, and the other is getting it" - Oscar Wilde.
