Picks: Mexico is not an ideal choice because if West Europe trys to go greenland, he would have around 50% chance. The oppo could also start in australia and in Europe/Africa, gving himself the Africa and Europe
Picking both SA and Aus would be counter by the oppo in Euro and Africa bigger armies heading to North Africa, thus breaking into SA. Asia has a wasteland bordering NA so the only ideal picks would have been Egypt and West Europe, which knyte and Mean Machine did. Mean machine should have opted for Aus as 3, not 4.
Turn 1: Neither player manage to get Europe and Africa, although knyte started with Aus, giving himself an advantage. Both players did the perfect play.
Turn 2: knyte attempts to remove Egypt to get Europe and Africa by himself. Harrassing knyte North Africa was seemingly good idea, but lt would have been better to attack with all Mean Machine armies because Aus is ideal 3rd pick and not wanting to give knyte an edge, this would result with 5 on Brazil, 3 on North Africa and 1 on Egypt, Doing it again would lead to 5 in brazil, 1 in North Africa and 0 Egypt. knyte would have to deploy 5 in Egypt but it won't stop Mean Machine from conquering North Africa and winning the game
Turn 3: Both did the perfect play
Turn 4 knyte sends 8 armies to attack egypt, lowering his defences in North Afica, and risk being attack by Brazil. But luck was with knyte and it happen before he sends his 8 armies.
Turn 5 : knyte should have went to Africa so he could gain both Africa and rein sooner, although knyte choices were equal. Mean Machine was going to lose no matter what so he surrendered
