We're about to play Cry Havoc for the first time for all 4 players.
I want everyone to feel the game is balanced, so that they will be interested in playing again.
What do experienced players recommend?
1. Play with basic default skills only, or add in special skills?
2. Any particular faction that is weak that I should be aware of?
3. Add anything from the Aftermath expansion?
Default skills only, no expansion bits. Give the weakest player the Trogs, the next weakest the Humans, then Pilgrims, and strongest player gets the Machines.
