Totally addicted to FtP right now, great game.
Do people have a preference for using event cards to increase the AA modifier or to increase the blockade level (or does it depend on how the game is going)?
I think blockade is usually better, but sometimes you have better opportunities with AA. AA is more effective, threatens also rivers, but requires much more cards (AA cards and the cards usen to operations). Was the answer vague enough?
The last few games I've played as the Union I've been using every opportunity to increase the AA modifier. I find a high AA modifier to be extremely dangerous for the rebs.
