Just noticing on the map --

"Northwest" is the only region that does not have a single "guaranteed" first move neutral grab. In fact, there is a high probability that they don't get a build at all in the first year.

I can't think of any major power in "Classic" Dip with such an abysmal prospect -- even poor Austria and Italy can gain a build if their home centers aren't attacked. was this intentional in the design?

since speakerbox might drop out, and ardvarkarmy's second choice is southeast, my first choice will be southeast

Yeah, I should have changed my prefs -- now that I really understand the river, Southeast is THE dream assignment!

Does an earlier second choice outweigh a later first choice? LOL
