So thinking through some possible moves Eurasia will make based upon either of these choices:

After looking at it a little more, one option for our move is as follows:
- Move mobi to F9 (1 wit)
- Warp 4hp soldier from J9 to F8, KILL their 2hp runner (1 wit)
- Move 3hp soldier from J11 to H9, BOOST him with I9 medic (2 wits)
- Fly B4 runner to D1 (1 wit)
- Move A5 soldier to B3 (1 wit)
Bank 1 wit.

I’m not sure that they’d worry about taking out the runner on their spawn spot as to do that would take their mobi and sniper out of the action. I would think that the heavy would be the unit that they’d want to take out, so that would require 4 wits to take it out. With an open wit space, they’d have 3 wits left. It’d be either our mobi or the base. I would think that they’d use 2 wits to attack our base, and then 1 more to mobi the sniper to safety.
This would leave us with 7 wits to start our next turn as they’d be sitting on our wit space. With 7 wits, we would use 2 to damage their base, 1 to kill their soldier, and another 1 to move back onto the wit space. We’d then have 3 wits to maybe spawn a runner and move it to the middle to give them something else to worry about?
I think this move would be a possibility, though it would depend on them ignoring our runner on their spawn as that would prevent them from seeing our advanced soldier.

We both had variations on this main idea:
Move heavy to F8 (1)
Kill 2hp runner (0)
Move 4HP soldier to G9 (1)
Move 2hp runner to D1 (1)
Move A5 soldier to B3 (1)
Move mobi to A4 (1)
2 wits left to bank or do something else

Again, this move would depend heavily on if they ignore our runner on their spawn spot or not. If they ignore it, I would think they’d still want to kill our heavy, so that would be 4 wits. With 3 wits, they could still damage our base, but wouldn’t be able to do anything to prevent us from winning the next turn. Though one possible issue is that they would see our mobi move to the wit space. This might give them pause and result in them playing more defense? I think that might be the downside to this move is that they see where our mobi goes to, but this move does give us a win the next turn if they don’t defend.
Also, if they have a choice between either the heavy and a 4hp soldier on the wit space, which one is more valuable to take out? Would it be the soldier on the wit space because they’d be able to take away 1 wit from us? Not sure that a heavy matters much against 4hp soldiers since it still requires 2 units to kill something?
