A revised version of the Playbook will be posted there in a while.
Even with the revision it makes no sense. The Algerian police are on the board. The original says “place 8”. 8 doesn’t exist in the game.
The revised says “place 6”. Six isn’t available unless you pull from other places on the board. Playbook doesn’t say where. It also leaves out when resources are spent and it never pauses to say, “ok, at this point, the markers should be here, here, and there”.
I found it helpful but not as much as it could have been.
