Well worth playing if you have a lot of spare time
Obviously, this game is lengthy and takes some getting used to, as are most games worth playing. It was, however, highly stressful. Also, enemy spies would be much more effective than mine in all circumstances, i.e. when I'm poor and use a Spy 2 against a rich nation I get bugger all, but their spies will essentially wipe me out, then when I'm rich and they're poor, I get nothing. I ended up in a situation where I sided with the poor guy, so when I did occassionally piss him off (with propoganda) he'd be forgiving. Then I took out the other two gradually with my allies help, set up a really powerful bomb and went for my ally. By that point it wasn't hard to take them both out as I had a massive starting advantage and the first attack, which they didn't defend. Of course, I got fucked over for it, but it nearly worked. A well-rounded game - congratulations.
