Since territories with a castle count as two territories when determining troop reinforcement, how do we divide up the territories at the start of the game to keep things fair? I initially just dealt out an equal number of territory cards to all the players as the rulebook suggested, but one of us ended up with 7 castles and one only had 2 which seems very unfair.

We take it turns in choosing territories one at a time rather than shuffling the territory cards out. That way, everyone gets the chance for an even number of castles/ports etc. Plus, it gives the opportunity for a more interesting starting strategy ...where do you want to begin? How are you going to protect it? Are you going to allow your opponent to take a whole region right at the start? Etc.
