- The following cards apply in all sections rather than just in one:
- Bayonet Charge
- Cavalry Charge
- Fire and Hold
- La Grande Manoeuvre
- For the avoidance of doubt the Give Them Cold Steel card still only applies in one section.
Call Forward Reserves: the wording on this card is ambiguous. To me the logic is that units are being summoned by a leader to join them. We shall therefore ignore the clause about open terrain. Units can be moved forwards to any hex adjacent to a leader or occupied by a lone leader. I will also allow any unit to be so ordered, not just those on the baseline; that restriction is presumably intended to make it a counter to Short Supply, but in practice would seem to punish attackers.
I have never been entirely happy with the Short Supply card, either when it was a Command Card, or now it's in the Tactician deck. For a while we played it as a sort of ranged fire equivalent to First Strike instead of as written. However, for the time being at least, it stays. In the next game to be played there will be a scenario specific restriction and we shall see how that works out.
OK, I'm off to sit in the sun and listen to the cricket. If I were a betting man my money would be on India.
