I started a 3 player game with two of my mates, and when i first looked at the board my heart sunk.
I was spread all over the place, with one friend in every territory bar one (that was me) in North America and my other friend in every territory bar one (that was me) in Africa.
I had 2 pieces in Oz, 3 in Europe and the rest dotted all over the place in Asia.
Now I'm not a quitter, but i could see that this game was never going to be won by me and i contemplated deadbeating it to preserve my leaderboard position.
Sure enough, I lost, and the guy who beat me had a very low score and i lost 32 points
There must be some people out there who have played enough games by now to know when its advantageous to not play.
Surely there comes a time in a regular CC players history that deadbeating becomes unavailable and this devious ploy is no longer an option.
