I got this card 2 times in a row also.

I 'win' on 5 or 6

In theory I guess I could attack India if you didn't control Pakistan giving me a 'win' on 4-6 and then just score points and not change the control but I'll try for Pakistan.... I'll get the 2 MILOPS anyway

With France neutral we're tied for BG countries, but with Romania I get another point for adjacency to the USSR

I assume your logic for playing the scoring card now remains the same despite this. My first move was going to be to retake France even before I realized the Romania point, so scoring now still reduces my VP gain. But if you want to change your card let me know and we can go back
