Tommy: Out of curiosity, why do you consider this a gameplay AAR? and don't worry it's the thought that counts If this AAR is deserving I hope to have your vote in three months time.
aldriq: Yes, Macau starts off as a state, whereas Goa which:
A. has been Portuguese for a lot longer than Macau
B. Unlike Macau, was considered a colony for it's entire history under Portugal
Is not considered a state. I attribute this to Paradox's continued misrepresentation of Macau.
