Anyway, each player is only started with 6 armies...and needless to say, can be knocked out before ever taking a turn... Something has to change here. IF you're going to start a game with so few armies, then the "random" part needs to be taken out of it. There should be assigned cards that each player starts on, OR make it so one player isn't set up to take someone out in the first or second move.

You took a turn before pink. You didn't take pink's territory. Pink killed you.
Stop crying and making up lies.

By you're own calculations, the odds are almost 5x greater to be taken out on the first turn with only 6 armies...
Additionally, your original claim (that I was countering in my first post) was that someone could be eliminated on the first turn. I hardly see how that is possible. That would entail someone taking out a minimum of 3 territories (1 neutral and 2 of yours) with a combined total of 9 armies with a starting total of 6. It's not going to happen (well, it can... but very rarely as it requires a perfect drop AND perfect dice).

It isn't supposed to give reinforcements depending on best combination owned?
maybe i haven't understood well how it works

What if players started with 4 or 5 or even 6 armies on each territory? More possibilities would exist for building a very strong hand and/or cutting off one's opponent, since movement would be more doable.

IMO it isn't all that good a 1v1 map, so that would be an OK consequence for me.
