The analyses for all of the Early War cards are finished. Here is a brief summary of the Early War cards (including Optional Cards, as always):
|Early War||Neutral||US||USSR||All cards|
|Total cards||9 | 6
||14||15||38 | 35
|Average||1.56 | 2.33||2.64||2.20||2.21 | 2.4|
The average Early War hand should have 17.7 Ops. Subtract headline and hold card, and you normally expect to play about 13-14 Ops per turn.
Notice that although there are more US Ops than USSR Ops, this usually is a bad thing for the US; for example, they have no 4 Ops USSR starred events to eliminate from the deck or discard to Red Scare/Purge + Blockade, and on average USSR events have fewer Ops to deal with their own effects.
