We did it right after the end of the game, and then went "Nope, wouldn't have changed our strategy". The Quarantine 7 Faded Cities objective is a mug's game anyway. I don't think we've ever bothered to complete it.

And we're done.

560 points, lost both in November and won first in December. Didn't use the nuke, didn't need Team Bravo, did use Box 8. C0D4 blue was 100% hard mode, but we worked around the final search through clever use of the Operations Expert and the Dispatcher. The Generalist was pretty impressive, but the Operations Expert and the Quarabtine Specialist were our star players. The OE ability to get basically anywhere was invaluable, as was the QE ability to just shut down an arbitrary city.

I think it's a fantastic game. There's lots of cleverly integrated feedback loops, well-integrated narrative devices, and clever decision making.
