*** It's been pointed out that it depends in part on the culture of the group you're playing with. Faster games favor Russia, France and Germany (which have the clearest paths to expansion), while games where players strive to maintain the balance of power (and thus take longer) tend to favor Turkey, England and Italy (which have the best defensive positions).

** This troper experienced this game in European History class where each country was played by a team so everyone would be involved. The team that did best in all the games we played paired a ManipulativeBastard with a trust-worthy and honest partner. Essentially, the bastard (this troper) plotted out all our devious plans while the trusted partner convinced potential allies to support our moves. After a few matches, the only people who would ally with us at all were those who could not geographically be reached (as Turkey we convinced England to ally with us and managed to carve up Russia and Austria and start moving on the rest of the continent before people had even realized what was going on)
