== Introduction ==
      I showed my other game here.In the game,I had the excellent position in the middle time.However,the opponent's great luck and bold offensive changed the situation.Thus I lost the game.It was just a short 32-turns game.This is the Australian Map.


Continent value --- Western Australia(West):5    Northern Territory(North-Central):4   
                               South Australia(South-Central):4    Queensland(North-East):6   
                              New South Wales(East-Central):3    Victoria(South-East corner):2

Participated player --- Club(Brown),Gatesy(Light Green),nascarnik(Light Green)     
                                   Imperial Japanese Army(Orange)

== Game Feature ==   
Fortification: 1, path    Cards: max 5, value: set type(4,6,8,10,20)   
Card Bonus: 5, on territory(which must be owned)    Trade-in Time: anytime   
Leaders(attack+1,show it a sword here): 1    Fortresses(Defend+1)
Must place troops immediately after trade cards(It mean that the player gain the great advantage after annihilate the other player)

                                                               Turn 4:The sharp confrontion

      nascarnik quickly took control of Victoria(2 value) initially,then heavily garrisoned Melbourne Fortress,forced me put all my troops to defend Adelaide Fortress.

      Meanwhile,the inexperienced Gatesy launched the unwise attack on Broome Fortress(6 attack 10),ended in failure.Gatesy left the game soon and was replaced by the bot.

                                                             Turn 16 & 20:My Wheeling Operation

      Sawing that nascarnik left a hole in his terrtories,I exploited this opportunity to 'rotate' to his rear.

                                                                     Turn 21:The rise of Club

      In this turn,Club conquered bot Gatesy with only 15 troops(need to destroy 16 troops on the way).Then he cashed cards and suddenly became strong that I didn't expect.

                                                      Turn 24 & 26:My terrtories was shrinking

      Club's dice was just too lucky.His 20 army sweeped New South Wales without serious loss,thus gained the upper hand.Later I sacked his terrtories,but that couldn't weakened him significantly.

              Turn 28:The lost of Victoria

                                                           Turn 28-30:The last stand at Adelaide

First invasion:nascarnik cashed cards and directly assaulted Adelaide,I only had 11 units
                      to defend(with no leader this time),but luckily repelled his attack

Second Invasion:Club invaded this time.I only had 9 units this time(with leader).His
                           troops easily overwhelmed the defense of Adelaide and conquered me

      After that,club easily defeated nascarnik in the game.

      Anyone have opinion about this?Can my defeat blame to luck?Or my strategy was going wrong?

Thanks for sending the game details. I find it a bit difficult to follow though. I guess you are using a non-classic map and its even more difficult to know the strategic locations. So I am afraid I am not sure if I can analyse the strategies.
