The triple Uesugi block without a circle and the Uesugi plus gun without a circle both gain circles.
The effect is that Aizu now has five circles and a "+1".
Perfect, Matt, thanks a lot - you just made it before starting the game we just finished.
And those two blocks made a difference defeating a Maeda expedition, before (with the utmost honor) being vanquished by the Tokugawa forces. The war ended some weeks later with Tokugawa himself being killed in the 16-block Battle of Gifu. Epic.
And Kuhrusty, yes, I completely agree - the new layout seems to make everything more difficult. I dont get these things.
