I am also not taking into account bonus troops for having a bold card which certainly does happen. On the average I say it balances out and for the most part a set cashed at 5 cards in flat rate would net you close to an average of 10 troops.
So if the card costs you more than 3.33 troops to get you have a net loss.

You have 21 possibilities for the types of cards you have. Beside each number is the likelihood of that occuring.
31/81*6 + 50/81*10 = 8.469
Each card is worth a third of that, or 2.823!!!

That`s exactly approximately right!

First, assume the game will go to round limit. How many spaces do you want to attack?
So, calculate how many rounds of deploy you will get for a bonus. On round 1, its 19. Then calculate expected lost troops.
A bonus of 1 requires killing 4 troops spread over 2 territories. So, it takes 5 troops. It is only worth it in the first 15 rounds. There is no excuse to not take your entire 1-6 of the kingdom.
The map is symmetrical in that everyone has the same 10-1-1-1-5 to get through for the village bonus. That would lose an estimated 18.5 troops. It only takes 7 rounds of village bonus to win that back.
The real question is: if everyone goes for village bonus, how do you deal with it?
I would say that if the first person to arrive at the village takes it for 8-10 rounds and then pulls out to let the other guy get the bonus for a bit, that would be the optimal strategy. What does game theory say about the likelihood of this?
Do you use expected worth calculations in your day-to-day games?
In non-round limit games, its pretty simple except you can only calculate relative worth, not absolute.
