You say that "it doesn't matter which one you end up with as long as you can eliminate all." But the same can be said about the entire board, as in, "it doesn't matter where you fight from, where you expand to, or where you end up on, as long as you eliminate all." By saying that it almost implies that no strategy needs to be thought about before a game. (Obviously, I know that you don't think that, but I'm trying to prove a point.) I'm just saying that I think that there must be some defining factor that leads you to eliminate one continent before another if you have two left to choose from. And maybe it isn't a specific continent, but a specific type of player. Either way, I think that there must be some sort of logic behind choosing your final moves. I could be wrong, and if I am, please tell me (nicely please ), and explain why. Thanks.
