Introduction
Greetings, Comrades!

In 1922, Vladimir Lenin led the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic (the Red Army, which had won the Russian Civil War that followed the destruction of Tsarist autocracy during the Russian Revolutions of 1917) to unify with other Eurasian republics; and found a constitutionally socialist state: the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) - the Soviet Union. At 22,402,200 square kilometers, the USSR covered a sixth of the world’s inhabited land across 11 time zones.

After Lenin’s death, Josef Stalin, General Secretary of the Communist Party, established totalitarian rule complete with hard labor prisons and executions for any opposition. In the late 1980’s, Mikhail Gorbachev came to power and started reforms, including tearing down the Berlin Wall that blocked East from West Germany, to give more freedom to the people and republics within the union. While the majority of the population voted to keep the republic intact despite (or because of?) these new freedoms, hardline Communist Party members revolted against Gorbachev. Their August Coups, that sought to re-establish a more totalitarian union, resulted in the ultimate dissolution of the USSR, by vote, in 1991. Still, between 1922 and 1991, the Soviet Union became and remained a world superpower.

Now the Conquer Club player has the chance to re-unify the mighty USSR. Will the Red Army win again?

Za zdoróvye! (To your health!)

Recommendation for settings:
Soviet Union is too “balanced” a map to favor one setting over another.
No matter which settings you choose, if you play enough games you will probably agree that Soviet Union offers quite a variety of options for strategic choices so that winning is less dependent on the initial region drop. With sufficient bonus zones of various sizes for bonus-dependent settings, and ample long-reach regions for every player in multiplayer/escalating spoils or team games, Soviet Union makes it fun to re-fight the Russian Revolution.

===============================
This ends the Official Map Guide.

However, there may be relevant strategy discussion outside the scope of this basic map guide located in the below further discussion.

Please keep the discussion general so it applies to many situations. Guidance about your specific games should go in the main Strategy forum.
