Re: CMST: Errata

The tossup on "National Security Council" calls it an "agency" throughout. That seems misleading, at best, though admittedly I'd be hard-pressed to think of a good filler word that doesn't immediately give the game away. Yes, I thought for a while about the best word to use here. Britannica calls i...

Re: CMST: Errata

Can I see the bonus on Cultural Revolutions? One of the dates sounded wrong but I could've misheard. 14.
