The Cuba final was so exciting -- it was neck and neck for most of the game. Several players went for shipping strategies; cigars and rum were prevalent and shipped quite often. Since victory points win the game, one player bought both buildings that ONLY give you victory points.hoping that would give him the boost he needed to win. It was great fun to hear Nick (from England who actually is in Parliament) read the new laws that were proposed each round. He sounded like he'd read official documents before! I guess that's because he had. In the end, the strategy that won the game was a combination of shipping and turning production into victory points. I was so tickled that Nick won, having learned how to play the game only a few days before at the Sampler Showcase.
