australia was the best couterpick for antarctica, although i agree not counterpicking for antarctica at all would ve been almost as good. (sure as hell shouldnt ve made it my 4th, maybe 6th)
and yes, i should ve waited a turn with attacking from S-A, i was still a noob back then though.
picking a starting spot and a counter as 1st & 2nd pick would ve given you a great chance on getting both spots, being clustered even, my 4th, 5th and 6th pick were all picks that i knew that if i got any of them i at least wouldnt ve gotten all my first 3 picks.
(sorry for the late reply, i m not often in the forums xD)
What do you think about this game then ? :
