Here is an example from most of the Germans RP usage for the beginning second turn of the game.


The 2nd Army (German) has moved and now activated to jointly attack the 10th Army. The 9th Army & 1st Panzer Division has both been activated to jointly attack. The total RP for this is 4 and still leaves the 9th & 1st Panzer the ability to move after words for 1RP each if desired.


The Russian 10th Army has been dispatched and the 1st Panzer Division has now moved South to engage on the next turn.


Now the 3rd Panzer & 4th Army are about to attack the 22nd Russian Army occupying Minsk for 1RP. (The 9th Army has already participated in an attack this turn and has been labeled with a yellow cube depicting his actions this turn are complete. (The cube should be on top of it but was not for live teaching purposes.))

All of the units on the top right have been activated for movement only, at this point, and paid for accordingly.


The 22nd Russian Army in Minsk was dispatched. Next the 2 units North of that have been laid down to jointly attack the Russian Army West of Riga for 1RP.


The attack was successful and now North Army and 18th German Army have been laid down to attack the 11th Army SE of Riga for 1RP. The attack was diminished as a DRM of -2 due to the river and yielded no hits.

At this point all of the units in the picture have moved AND attacked at some point during their turn.


The end of the Germans 2nd turn.

The yellow cubes merely allow us to track movement and attack. We have about 20 of them out for use at any time. When they are placed on top of an upright block they depict being moved. When they are on top of a laid down exposed block they depict as having attacked AND moved. When a unit is exposed down it depicts as having attacked or in the process of. This allows us to keep up with Attack / Movement / Attack & Movement.

The Blue cubes are German controlled cities and Red cubes represent Russian controlled cities to assist keeping up with “In Supply”.

The cubes are actually Caballeros from El Grande!

Great. I wish games would include counters for tracking all game functions out of the box. Annoying so many games leave it to us to figure out.
