Your Plans :Tempted to take one of the singleton terts- Vancouver, Lagos, Cairo, Mumbai, Lagos- for a spoils but the F4M says just deploy on first move. Particularly tempting would be to take Mumbai and fort Novosibirsk and Hong King to Dubai Instead, how about I deploy one on Edmonton, one on Bogota, one on Dubai, no attacks, and fort Hong Kong to Novo?
The point of the F4M is that they're just guidelines, not rules set in stone. One thing to note here is that if you were to take the spoil, you'd be neglecting the other areas of the board, and it's important to establish a foothold in NA early on. Dubai is also a great place to hold.
However, say you could fort to those spots and still have the opportunity to take a spoil. I'd greenlight that decision if you were strong enough in the other two places.
Here, though, your second move is the better one. Watch out for Bogota, though. Pink may be gunning for the bonus, so you might want to drop that troop elsewhere.
I suggest you drop
1 to N2, 1 to A1, and 1 to F5. Right, fort A5 to A4. (I like HK's position better, but A1 covers two of those terts already, so Novos is better here).
