-Placaters are the only source of damage in this Debate Axis focused scenario. As such, they will try to go after the same target every turn in order for that damage to have any real threat. This may be frustrating to the players due to the Confused condition; if they struggle, consider pointing out tactical movement possibilities that could force the Placaters to swap targets, especially for inexperienced players.+Placaters are the only reliable ​source of damage in this Debate Axis focused scenario.

-Raise the difficulty by starting the counter at -1 or eliminating the third victory condition (though you might want to increase the round limit to 5 if you choose the latter option).
