WCCIC Review

I'll go through the advantages first today. It's an automatic 1.5 turns' worth of reinforcements. That's always a nice boost, but you should probably save this card for when you need it. If your enemy is trying to win by forcing you down to 0 Power Points (and therefore a retreat loss) then you can surprise him if things get rough. It's also a nice counter if you lose a flight. But it's only 3 Points, that's not a whole lot. I could easily construct a flight worth 8 or 10 Power Points in penalties if it were to be destroyed. Keep that in mind. You can only play this card during your draw phase, so if you anticipate possible losses, you might want to play tHE lOVE aNIMALS.
It's not a good way to play on the brink of retreat. If you need 3 Power Points, then you probably also need to practice a bit at resource management. Once you're skilled enough to keep a healthy level of Power Points most of the time, this card is no longer necessary. You might be better off using the slot in your deck for something else.
