In our first play of this game one of us drew a Paratrooper Resistance card.
This card instructs that a Paratrooper Resistance counter be randomly placed in any other board location.
I interpreted this languange in the cards text to mean that the counter may not be placed in the same location of the board where the current battle is taking place. Only in one of the other 5 locations.
It turned out that the player's first random-placement roll would have put the counter on the current battle so I told him to re-roll.
