Because of all the farmer green cubes that start in the tower, our first combat of the game always seems to result in the attacker losing. Has anyone else found this to be the case? Any ideas to mitigate this? Thanks!

I thought that the first time, but then I realized I had forgotten to empty the tray after initial loading.
The obvious mitigation is to load fewer than ten farmers at the beginning. You could try and see if that's better or whether you prefer the normal way after all. Another (bit crazier) mitigation could be to throw a few revolt markers at random provinces before each spring round, though I haven't really thought that option through.

When you prime the tower you are removing the cubes that fall to the tray, correct? Generally we only get 3 or so green cubes to stay in the tower after it has been primed. You just need to know that before you attack so you can plan on bringing a larger force if your going first...
