297 10/31/2019 4:34:00 AM Winter 1916 Central Powers Message Sorry, Etienne! I have been a fool!

I have been reading 'round' as 'turn' for the last 1.5 years of playing this game. All of my regular opponents have been as well, I think. This is why I've been largely ignoring the NE map. It seems that I'm going to get punished for this in this game.

It is good to play with someone who is taking a fresh look at the rules!
296 10/30/2019 11:05:00 AM Winter 1916 Allies Message Chawn, I try to be diligent and read (re-read) the rules before I play, but for this one I need help.

I cannot see where in the rules (even @ p.37) CAU could not be activated more than once per turn. I know AP cannot activate more than one space in NE per action round for combat.

If you don't mind please help clarifying this.
