The base game rules for bounce flags state that, "A bounce flag rolled against a cavalry unit by an infantry unit in square may not be ignored for any reason."

However, the rules for Iron Will Counters state that, "When one or more flags are rolled against a Prussian unit, that otherwise can’t be ignored, the Prussian player may spend an Iron Will counter. Each counter spent will allow one flag to be ignored."

So which wins? I assume "any reason" includes Iron Will Counters, but the wording with "otherwise" makes me question it for a moment.

The bouncing flag cancels ALL rules, which may ignore a flag.

Quote:
may not be ignored for any reason."


Any reason is any reason!

- Supporting Units
- Attached Leaders
- Unit own skills
- All other special rules we have or we get in future, as "Iron Will" for example

I'm inclined to agree that Iron Will counters can't be spent to override Bounce Flags. ("…can't be ignored for any reason" trumps "…that can't otherwise be ignored..." in my opinion.) But I also think that the wording is ambiguous enough to warrant clarification from the author.

Update: I see that "Iron Will" is a staple of the Bavarian ethnic make-up, too. laugh
