Doug's rule satisfies that as well.  I agree with both of you that it's
a little unfair to give someone with the advantage of having 3 face
cards an additional advantage of more cards in hand on the first round.
Even better might be to make sure that none of the original hands have
any face cards, through discards or by shuffling them in after the deal,
so that the game starts with a peaceful period before the attacks start.
