Welcome to Turn 14 of The Impaller versus The World, a game that everyone gets to participate in! For more information about the game, view this blog post.

Here's how the game started, for reference:

The winning item from last time was number 2. Take Canada, attempt to take South America, advance in Africa, attempt to take Mexico.

Deploy 9 to Northwest Territories, 2 to Quebec, 1 to Cuba, 2 to Panama, 3 to Nigeria. Use Order Priority Card. Attack Argentina with 21 from Brazil, attack only Argentina with 6 from Colombia, attack Ontario with 4 from Quebec, attack Yukon with 4 from Northwest Territories, attack British Columbia with 4 from Northwest Territories, attack Alberta with 4 from Northwest Territories, attack Bolivia with 4 from Brazil, attack Mexico with 3 from Panama, attack/transfer Mexico with 3 from Cuba, attack Chad with 5 from Nigeria.

Here's what we did:

My apologies for the delay but the turn has gone and we have a TON of options open to us right now. I've posted a couple of obvious options as well as a couple of ideas that I might do in this situation. I'm more than open to any other suggestions altho please remember to only post if you have a final answer situation that is properly spec'd out (as per the options above). Don't bother giving them #'s, I'll do that when I add them on.

I'm definitely interested to hear the chat on this last turn!

Hmm, he deployed 4 and sent 9 into Kazakhstan. I would assume he deployed 7 or 8 for that attack, and given that his income is at least 17, he's likely still expanding somewhere.

Since I did not participate from the start I'm not sure if I can post here, but nevertheless I'd like to share some ideas.

I really like number 4, but with a small difference. I think it's a safe bet Impaller is going to try to take Kazachstan while breaking West Russia and I don't see how we can defend it after he takes Georgia without sacrificing too many troops. Since there are not many bonuses left to take for him I think the offensive through Caucasus might be decisive. Also we have to watch Hawaii since he might attempt to go through there.

Deploy 12 to Chad, 14 to Ufa. Attack Congo with 14 from Chad. Use Order Delay Card. Transfer 16 from Argentina to Brazil, transfer 1 from Bolivia to Brazil, transfer 6 from Colombia to Brazil, transfer 1 from Ontario to Alberta, transfer 1 from Yukon to British Columbia, transfer 1 from Alberta to British Columbia, attack Southwest with 4 from Mexico, attack Western Kazakhstan with 14 from Ufa.

So, what do you think?

random thoughts:
- we should take Alaska at some point
- East Africa and Congo are a priority
- He has India, East Africa, and Australia. He may also have Indonesia, China, South Africa, and less likely, East Russia.
- If we totally concede West Russia, he can take Caucusus behind us

Szeweningen: Your orders are different enough from #4 to warrant a new vote option so I've added it as follows:

#5. Szeweningen: Take Congo, setup West US, push back into Caucasus. (Use Delay Card)

Transfer 16 from Argentina to Brazil, transfer 1 from Bolivia to Brazil, transfer 6 from Colombia to Brazil, transfer 1 from Ontario to Alberta, transfer 1 from Yukon to British Columbia, transfer 1 from Alberta to British Columbia, attack Southwest with 4 from Mexico, attack Western Kazakhstan with 14 from Ufa.
