thanks for this great game.

After lots of playin´ we allowed us to change
the game a bit :

We buyed 3 games.

Take the following cards for game play :

Every player get 16 Armies

all 1 - 5 ( 15 cards total)
1 Card 7
3 Cards + 2
2 Cards - 1
2 Pestcards

We changed the rule for the Pestcard :

If you play it on a territory where your opponent
is in, he lose half the armies rounded down. If
there is one army, after card is none.

Cards are shuffled and every round the players
take 5. You have to manage what you get.

After scoring rounds, the cards which are played
will be shuffled and under the deck.

A great and straight game experience.

If you want to play solo, give the opponent
one card +3 and one card +1 to the deck.

Surprisingly this works very well and in my experience
you lose near 40 % of the games.

Again, thank you for this great little game.

PS : This card mechanism would be great also for
a bigger sized war game because it´s fast and easy.

Dear Relf: it is very hard to understand what you are saying. How many cards TOTAl are in your deck? Is it 23? it seems like it might be 23 if you have 3 copies of each of the cards 1-5.

However, all you said was 1-5 (15 cards total)

Is it 15 cards in the deck or 23? or some other number.

Sorry it is so very hard to figure out what you mean, and then you have them drawing from the deck so it would be very hard for me to figure this out by trial and error. Please can you tell us, how many cards total in the deck?

There are literally 1000 ways to devise variants. If it plays well for you, excellent.
