563 7/17/2018 2:48:00 PM Turn 12 Allies Message >didn't see where I could not take replacement if in ZOC

7.21 in the Battle Book.

I think you face challenges when you don't have the physical game (the same goes for Sword of Rome). Being able to look at and handle tangible components makes a big difference for me. With this one you have the added challenges of simple yet slightly quirky rules, a Rule Book, a Battle Book with a first part you need to ignore because it is for the Galicia game and finally the specific rules in the second half of the Battle Book.
562 7/16/2018 5:46:00 AM Turn 12 Germans Message didn't see where I could not take replacment if in ZOC just that I can't use him this turn - if wrong then I'll

Now that the Allies have a continuous front (ZoCs and units from 2100 to south edge) ALL CAVALRY HAVE DISMOUNTED AND ARE INFANTRY.

So don't look on them as being separate, stacking differentyly, able to retreat before combat etc. They are now infantry and generally have a low TER.

The only exception is that the Cav Repl rule still holds, so that is how one a turn might come back from the dead.
512 7/7/2018 5:36:00 AM Turn 11 Allies Message All supply is good.
