Message from Catholic:
Play to Activate Pappenheim (Bav Leader):
-pick up 2*2 Step Merc + 1*1 Step Merc (mandatory 5 Units stay with Tilly as Dynamic Leader)
- Move: Freiburg+change control (2 MP) -> Breisach (3 MP)-> Wittenweier+change control (5 MP) -> Breisach (6 MP, place Siege)
- Pillage-1 -> Wittenweier
- Change control of Baden

Now a question, when changing control, should it change once or twice? For me twice makes sense (essentially should change to Prot->Neutral->Cath, +2 VPp and +2 VP), so I shifted it by +4 VP (+16 -> +20 VP). Please let me know if you disagree.
Thanks & over to you
