problem. But if you lose a Group and its duplicate, you might as
well give up, as you won't be able to replace the Alignments (The
Orbital Mind Control Lasers can only do so much).

I deliberately put New York in as a backup. You could do it that
way, but that would just give you one more Place to defend, and like
you said, there is only one Holy Grail.
> Remove OPEC. It's a neat trick, but you've used it before (morethan once).
You say that like it's a bad thing (LOL). Seriously, it's there for
the backup plan, to help get to 50 for Power for Its Own Sake, should
you need to go that way.

That frees up 5-6 plots, but your contingency plan has probably been
The contingency plan is why the Resources are there. If you want a
One Trick Pony, you can take them out, but then you're screwed if you
lose a Group permanently, and you won't have enough points for the
contingency plan, should you need to use it. The Holy Grail is there
to protect California, leaving you one Place (Vatican City) to worry
about. If you remove Bermuda Triangle, you have no Illuminati! What
were you thinking?

I have those Yellow NWO's for that; Powerups would be just as much
overkill as the Resources.
