Hey

I have a very simpel question concerning the interaction between War Resolution and "End of an Age" events. More Specifically with Napoleon and Genghis Khan in mind ...

The end of the age occurs during the refilling of the card track if i'm not mistaken. However the wars are resolved at the start of the attacking players turn according to the rulebook.

So the question is:
Does a war resolve before the end of an age effects are resolved (outdated leaders die changing your military power).

Wars resolve at the start of a players turn, but after the card row is refilled. The card row triggers the change of age, so that happens before the war resolves.
Does that help?

If your answer is the official word then it just means that military leaders are a little bit less usefull thats all.

On one hand it states: "The war will be resolved at the beginning of the
attacker's next turn."

On the other hand it states: "Except during the first round, each player begins his or her turn by replenishing the card row"

So both events happen at the start of the players turn and it is unclear what has priority. If there ever comes a FAQ i think it should be included

No need for an official FAQ

It's all there for you in the Code of Laws - rulebook. Page 3 and on the reference sheet. The exact steps you follow and the order in which they are done is there.

I'm not sure why you think this is ambiguous...
