Sometimes real games that I play, accidentally offer a board configuration that are so well-balanced that demand more examination and are just fun to think about. Here is one of these configurations.
The world in this game is divided between two groups. Three players own continents and three others don't. The three that have continents are well-off. They are like the rich nations of a planet, living in harmoney with no wars between them. Some like Brown have colonized lands far away from their home (Australia) and want to expand beyond their own continents.
Meanwhile, the situation for continent-less players seem to be dire. They have amassed large number of armies and seem to be ready to fight. Two of them (Black and Red) are competing over a very crowded Australia. They are not fighting because they know that the pair that fights will lose and the third player comes to dominate the continent. Blue on the other hand is squeezed between the rich and the poor, not knowing which way to turn.
In this world, anyone can win. It is a matter of having a vision and a sound strategy that you stick to. Nevertheless there is going to be only one winner. The players are all experienced and are unlikely to make even a single mistake. If you make a risky move, you can easily get kicked out.
In this game you are playing as Red against other experienced players. You have worked hard to get to a position of power and are now the most powerful nation in the world. You have been getting fruits of your effort and as a result have ended up with a well-fortified continent with a large army that can be unleashed to the the world at will.
