Since a minor jihad can't worsen a country's governance from poor to Islamist, would you ever select a minor jihad in a good country without an aid marker? I'm new to the game and playing it that I'd skip to "Cells Available?"in the flowchart. Am I playing it correctly?

You'd do it under rare circumstances such as near the end of the game if you needed the US down some resources to prevent a win or to set up conditions for a powerful event.

I'm sorry... let me edit that question real quick... I put "good" where I meant to put "poor".

Here's the updated original:

No. You'd only ever really major jihad in that situation. The risk of losing a cell isn't worth getting rid of an aid marker in a country already at poor. There are many more productive things you could likely do with your card.

I don't have the English flowchart (I have the Italian edition of Labyrinth), but I'm pretty sure that when you have to choose between Minor Jihad and going to "Cells Available?", you have to check if a Minor Jihad is possible in Good/Fair countries (or at least that's what Rule 9.4.1 says).

Edit: never mind, I see my mistake now... Poor shouldn't be considered. Thanks ;-)
