Is this a Wars Across the World scenario?

JasonPratt:
Yep!

Did I just buy the engine and both Seasons for about $43 total? .... maybe. (The steam purchase doesn't seem to have gone through correctly.)

  Yep.  The cards can play some odd tricks.  On Turn 11...with Iraq about to take Doha...the "Release Western Hostages" card came up and the UN decided to bomb Iraq into the Stone Age (as they say...presumably just to the vaguely metallic edge of the Neolithic, but you never know).  The B-52s appeared over Baghadad and the world came to an end.  The game froze.  I "re-engineered" the cards and re-ran the game from the last pre-hostage release phase and the only card that appeared was "Plague"...with a lot of fine print.  The game worked but there were no more cards (due, I guess, to the "Plague") and of course Iraq took the whole map.
