I was losing this game of Twilight Struggle at work to +Stephen Kapusta big time. On the 9th 'turn' (each turn has 7-8 rounds) I was in trouble. Stephen was at 18 victory points (needed 2 more to win) and all he had to do was 'score' a single region. He got a hand with 3 scoring cards, asia, middle east, and europe. Because of some lucky cards on the 8th turn, I had taken control of Europe, which if Europe was scored would be an automatic win for me (I felt my only hope to win the game was to control Europe, and keep Stephen from getting enough points to win before final scoring after the 10th turn.) Stephen led with asian scoring, which would have won him the game except because I was leading in the Space Race, he was forced to play his headline card first. Seeing he would win with that, I luckily had Ussuri River Skirmish in my hand which let me put 4 influence in Asia, effectively neutralizing the card. Stephen then went on to attempt to coup me out of Egypt, (he had previously removed me from Lebanon and Israel) and get Middle East domination. If he had succceded on the coup of Egypt he could have played Middle East scoring on the next turn and again won. Luckily for me he rolled poorly and the coup failed. I then played a 4 ops card and regained control of Israel. From that point he was sunk. he attempted to regain dominance of the Middle East and failed, and then was forced to play Middle East and then European scoring. A surprising 9th turn win for America! 

And if you made it all the way through that post, good on you, you're a dork. If you haven't played Twilight Struggle before, I highly recommend it. It's a great game.

Best practices to avoid dark social by +Samantha Barnes  #data  +Google Analytics 

Is Campaign Measurement built into GTM for Apps (Android and iOS)? I can find documentation on how to set up Campaign Measurement through the Google Play store for the Android SDK, and General Attribution for both Android SDK and iOS SDK, but nothing specific for the GTM for Apps documentation. A few marketing pieces/blogs seem to indicate it's native for GTM on Apps, is this actually the case?

I love this years Pitt football season tickets. The retro look is really well done. Kudos to the Pitt athletics department and their designer.

So you may have heard that +Google Analytics launched a new bot and spider filtering feature, but do you UNDERSTAND it. How does it work? What are bots? Why do Strawberries have their seeds on the outside? ALL THESE QUESTIONS WILL BE ANSWERED. Except the one about Strawberries. +LunaMetrics

I had fun with this post. How can a local business gain local geo data in +Google Analytics focusing on the lovely city of #seattle but it works for any major city. Why should the metro or city level map in GA be your limiting factor, when there is plenty of variation within your city by neighborhood, zip code, etc. Well getting that data isn't all that hard, and I lay out exactly how easy it is in this post. Want to know what your conversion rate is by each neighborhood in your city? Read on!
