I have played Imperialism, the world computer game, for years. This is a game to conquer the countries of the world. Strategies are taught to either submit or conquer the others. All in all, the more countries, the more people and resources the conquer has for his disposal. If Putin is going to expand his world, he would have to conquer and defend his country. He would have to strike any country that could destroy or hinder his efforts. In the game, putting blockades at the harbors and ports, striking any port or manufacturing center, dividing the country and cutting the electricity. The electricity, in the game, makes up about 85% of the labor and manufacturing force. Imperialism is ONLY a game and is not a tool for taking over the world, but is mighty fun to play.
