Hi, after reading the rules, the sequence of some phases seem strange to me:
1 First you build new armies (probably in areas where other armies allready are)
2 After that a possible conflict occurs
3 Finally, armies may move.
Wouldn't the sequence 1 - 3 -2 be more logical?
How does this affect gameplay?
If that's the only aspect which remains strange to you after you play the game, then you've done incredibly well.
