Here I am looking smug just before I win a six or seven hour long game of A Distant Plain at BottosCon 2016.

If you can't be a good example, be a horrible warning

Blood and Bridges. I love this game, even if the town names are silly.

It's a real house of cards. Four factions each have different victory conditions. When you do something it can send ripples + or - for other factions as well as yourself. Dice are rarely used. The Coalition for example needs to gain support for the Afghan Government and get out of the country, without handing victory to the Government faction by accident.

The Taliban challenge the Government for control of a non-Pashtun province.

It would be way to difficult as a forum game unfortunately. GMT has it. I've played ADP half a dozen times. This game is by email. I also have Andean Abyss and Fire in the Lake from the same series. I had dinner with the designer last November. Oddly, he doesn't play games. His hobby is designing them. Absolutely fascinating.
