18 11/23/2019 5:40:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Play Strategy card as Strategic Redeployment #10: 3 / SUD Army
One AH unit and up to 2 GE corps may stack together and be Activated for a cost of 1 OPS point. A different stack may be chosen each Action Round. If a second AH unit or a second non-GE corps unit is present, then the activation cost is 2 OPS points. This event does not supercede rule 12.1.11.

Message from Central Powers:
Hey, this Strategic Movement is a powerful tool to grab the initiative.

I don't really know how to use this card for the event (does the effect apply immediately ? Later on ?) so I will use it for the strat Move as well.


AH Corps move : Villach to Timisvar
GE corps move : Bremen to Timisvar
RB GE corps move to Timisvar (7/0)
RB GE corps move to Brussels (6/0)


I have no idea if it's a great idea to send all these reserve corps on the field, thus risking permanent elimination of armies...
