Two questions came up in our plays yesterday, questions of interpretations.

1) Russian Army Reform. The rules state: "take the matching reformed army from the Reform box and place it in any Year box without a Russian block already in it, at least two years ahead." (emphasis mine)

Our question is, two years ahead of what? One of us thought it was the current year, the other that it was two years ahead of any Russian block already on the year track.

---

2) Forced March and difficult terrain. One interpretation is that once an army crosses a difficult terrain border, it has to stop moving. The other is that if it crosses before force-marching, it can force march and move again. Which is correct?

Thanks!

1) The rule means two years after the current year.

2) A forced march is not separate, it is a single march. A block that crosses a difficult terrain border must stop moving for that action (and force marching is not a separate action).
