I just worked through the playthrough last night and I have a question. On page 27, the Aristocrats are implementing a military issue in Sicily and the Agiad Phormio faction has to decide how many Strategos to commit to defend Sicily. The playbook states, "For the Agiad faction we look at the decision chart and determine that the Agiads will commit 4 of their 5 Strategos." I double checked the decision tree to make sure I understood the logic. But, since the Agiad faction still has an unimplemented military issue out there, shouldn't they be committing zero Strategos instead of four? (See second column of the same page the paragraph under the first picture.) I know I must be missing something here.
Overall, I'm enjoying learning the game and playthrough is helpful in working out the kinks. It was really smart putting Phormio in the playthrough since it encourages me to actually try this game with bots before I try it with humans. The whole strategy aspect of it still alludes me. But I'm sure that'll be helped over time.
Have a good day! and thanks ahead of time to whoever can help.
It could be a mistake from a 'Bot point of view, but it is a legal move. I will have to take a look...
