In the third installment, covering turns 5 and 6, we look at some of the issues that come up with the Defcon starts at 4 or 5 instead of the usual 3. We learn “how to run a good Quagmire” to suck extra victory points out of the double (or more) move it can provide us. This is also a “Momentum Episode” – we will also look at ways to use a lead on the scoreboard to force the opponent to make sub-optimal use of his cards. In turn 6 I overlook an “instant checkmate” opportunity – see if YOU can find what I missed!
