250 11/1/2019 10:27:00 AM Turn 7 USSR Message not getting Voice of America certainly hurts. I've been sitting on it for 3 turns waiting to space it after the Mid-War reshuffle this turn.
ultimately what killed you I think was while the USSR will make some ha Early War on Scoring cards I was able to keep Central and South America plus Africa at 0 so you weren't able to get any points back. Your Coup rolls were way better though.
