Worst Turn10 Hand for USA

Situation:  USSR ahead in VPs with 14.  USSR domination in Euro and ME.  Split in Africa, SA, Asia.  USA control of CA.  Also USSR can see my HL card with space race advancement.

I held TDTW and I was dealt:  Defectors, CIA, Socialist Govnt, Star Wars, ME Scoring, Euro Scoring, Puppet Govnt, De-Col.

I HL TDTW and coup Italy leaving USSR w/ 1 inf in Italy.  USSR HL Salt and picks Aldrich Ames and DEFCON is up to 4.

AR1 - USSR plays Aldrich Ames and discards Puppet.
AR1 - USSR removed influence from France, Spain, Turkey (1 each).  I play Socialist Govnt placing 3 op in Italy for control.
AR2 - USSR plays Wargames (to make me suffer) and places ops to gain control of EG, Bulgaria, and Spain.
AR2 - I play Defectors and coup Libya removing 2 inf (0/0).
AR3 - USSR Junta for 2 inf in Mexico (2/2) failed coup in Panama.
AR3 - I score Europe for take USSR to 19 VP.
AR4 - USSR Iran Hostage for 2 inf in Mexico (2/4), 1 inf in Sudan (0/1).  CA split and USSR dominates Africa.
AR4 - I play ME scoring w/Shuttle Diplomacy.  No VP gain.
AR5 - USSR plays Cambridge for 2 op in Paraguay (0/2).  USSR dominates SAmerica.... why he is making me suffer??  Probably all of the other beatings!
AR5 - I play Star Wars to realign Mexico which is now 2/1.
AR6 - Evil Empire for 3 op in Mexico (2/3).
AR6 - CIA to realign Mexico... My sweet rolls continue and I realign myself out of Mexico (0/3).
AR7 - China card for 5 op into NKorea (5/4).
AR7 - I end it all....DEFCON suicide!

Had this game gone to final scoring, it would have ended with 42 VP for the USSR!   ;D  I put you through misery when I could have ended the game in AR4 by playing Iran/Iraq war which I had control of both.  I also could have saved War Games when Defcon went back to 2.

It could have been worse.  You could have had Ames, Reformer and We Will Bury You.

I just picked up the worst hand I have ever seen as the USSR.  CIA, Grain Sales, Duck and Cover, and VOA.   >:(

You can't manage that.  Game over.

It's not necessarily game over with that hand, although it is nasty. Grain Sales is the space card, CIA the hold card, Duck and Cover played on AR1 so the USA doesn't get a battleground coup. You'll have to bite the bullet with VoA, but you can make something of this hand.

(Obviously, things are brighter if you have the China Card, or if the USA plays Bear Trap on you.)

He trapped me earlier in the game.  I was able to get rid of Grain Sales and space VOA.  It was just unfortunate that all the nasty cards appeared at once and I didn't have China.
