2 3/10/2021 5:19:00 AM Turn 1 USSR Message Hi Yoshi,

I've setup this game with the optional cards.

For balancing effects, I typically play in tournament games where we bid for influence as the balance. Since we've already chosen sides, the Twilight Struggle ladder uses a standard extra USA influence of 3, as does wargameroom, to my understanding.

So, after you place your 7 Western European influence, you may add 3 influence to any country where you already have influence, up to control. This is the same standard as the ladder.

Ok, here's my 6 influence:

DDR [Germany] (0-4*)
POLAND (0-4*)
Yugoslavia (0-1)

I will send you a dropbox invite with my initial placement later.
