Viva la Revolution

The Rebels won three of the four Preliminary games. However, one ended in the first ever tie so Randall MacInnis and Rob Kilroy along with John Kilbride, Gordon Rodgers and Lane Hess advanced io the Final to make a five-player game.

Kilroy, Rodgers and kilbride are three members of the Philly Amish and know each other's Modus Operandi very well. MacInnis drew first blood by ambushing Kilroy's TV station and used it to eventually eliminated six units in eight propaganda attacks. This represented nearly half of Randy's scoring opportunities. He lost broadcasting control to Lane who lost it in turn to John (who went 2 for 3 in his spiels afterward) in the end game. Lane spent most of the game deploying and withdrawing targets, losing attacks due to bad die rolls, and holding the TV Station for exactly one successful turn of broadcasting before losing it to Gordon and the game ending.

John lost his first attack, but managed to account for 37 victory points for eliminating units and control of the Port by the end of the game. However, in the end he supported the losing side (rebel) and his third place VP total was halved, dropping him to fourth place. Rob used his first four turns to discard and draw cards. Obviously this strategy worked for him. He built a few strong units then went hunting for installations. By the end of the game he moved from only 5 VP to controlling 25 VPs of installations. In his last turn he deployed a 3+3, 5, 7, 6 government unit, but the game ended before he could use it when Randy rolled a 10 on the first turn of sudden death. He backed the Government so his VP total stayed at 45 which was enough for second place laurels.

After losing his initial attack with a dr of 1 to 10, Gordon used seven further attacks to move into a tie with John before sides were revealed. His last attack destroyed a small garrn and gained control of the TV station to move ahead of John (before halving) and Rob, his comrade in arms. The final VP totals were Gordon: 54, Rob: 45, Randy: 25, John: 22, and Lane: 18.
