I tried multiple different types of settings, but had some trouble getting a win on hard. I finally beat hard mode with the following settings:

Basic Settings
Players: 1 Human, 2 Computer (3 total, the minimum amount)
Difficulty: Hard (obviously)

Advanced Settings
Board Setup: Automatic
Card Rules: Fixed

The key, I think, was switching from progressive card rules to fixed card rules. Progressive increases the amount of troops you can redeem incrementally. This made the games unpredictable and territory control would swing wildly from player to player. With fixed card rules, you redeem a set amount each time, making it much easier to retain control of your continents, which award bonus troops each turn.

I kept it on automatic setup, too. I found it much faster than setting up manually, and if I didn't like the placement of my troops I just restarted. Also, you can exit and start a new game whenever it becomes apparent you'll lose the match. Keeping the players to a minimum really helped, too. If an enemy defeats another enemy they capture their cards and can immediately redeem them for troops. More than a few times I was defeated because the computer went on a computer killing spree and claimed huge chunks of territory. Fewer players means fewer chances this will happen.

You can kind of be sure you'll win when you get down to yourself and one other player and you draft more players than your opponent each turn. Just hang on to your continents and you'll eventually wear 'em down. Remember, the game is highly based on luck, but there's some strategy, too.

I hope this helps. If you have comments or questions leave them in the section below.
