I usually prefer to play only against CPU. Therefore I spent probably most of the time restarting until I get 1st position because: 1) the CPU players almost always align against me to the point that i'm obliterated if i'm 3rd, 2) there's a major troop imbalance & i'm perpetually forced to defend until whittled down to nothing, or 3) a combination of 1 & 2. Most of the time, the only fighting chance i have is to go first. Why not create a "solitaire mode" where i get to choose my own starting position? Thanks for your consideration!
