Impossible to rush Portuguese with ff and 3 TCs with organs guns and halberds shipped. But don't wake the russian bear! Very GG! Also bad idea to revolt against russians.
Had to use market a lot since he always aged faster than me. Luckily i had land grab and sevastopol cards. He had me on defense entire game but he made the mistake of letting me build my economy in the little space that i had. This game shows how russians can mass armies in age 3-4 that makes it look like you have infinite resources.
