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
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.
