Obviously it's a little late to change this, but if I recall correctly isn't this normally put down as 20s across the board and just factored in wherever it falls? Your way ("what was left over") actually makes more sense, though, so whatever.

Sorry. To clarify, he bid 1 on every country without preference as can be seen in the table.

I always bid no preference, though what I really want is the least preferred country in the game. Typically, bidding rules require that I use all available points, in which case I would spread them equally across all options (per GhostEcho's observation). In this case, there was no such stipulation, which meant that I could truly get the nation no one else wanted.

Ah, makes sense. Thanks for the clarification, both of you.

Only dipping into this one, but I was interested in Flatley's 'preference'.

I often feel similarly in games I've played before, although in variants which are new to me I like to (try to) identify the stronger nations and go with one of them first time around. But once I've played the variant I go, more often than not, not so much for the one nobody else wants but the one with the worst record. I like to see whether I can do better than other players have done - or, alternatively, to determine whether the country is actually as weak as it has appeared.

Not the same as Flatley, but out of the same stable I think.

There will a separate thread for each season of results.
