playing until the end usually works on turkey LD as most people give up with the sheer repetitive drone of it all
DON`T DO THIS! This is exactly what makes people hate the template. Games that take way to long. Once you reach the stalemate you can continue for 4 turns or so. After that it should be clear whether or not your enemy is going to make any huge mistakes. It should also be clear which player has the highest income. That player will most likely win, so best is for the other player to surrender. Please don`t be a noob who doesn`t know when to surrender. The template is quite fun, but not if you get stalled to death.
