My group in the game was Europe and Africa. The strategy I used to win was that we should give combos. Our countries were not good but when we gave it in a combo, USSR was willing to pay big money. I wanted to sell all my countries and so I sold all my countries and made many points for my team. This was my strategy.
I would have to say that my team did win in the end because we did have the most points amogst all our opponents. This was in the game, but in the real cold war, the real losers were USA and the USSR. These two groups wasted so many valuable resources in the cold war and in the game. All in all, the two superpowers were the losers.
