I'm on my first solo run through of the game, and I quite like this so far. Couple of questions popped up:

1) For the Taliban's Extort special action, when it says "More Taliban troops than all enemy" does that include Gov't & Coalition pieces, or just the Warlords?

2) How do you move Police cubes?

Thanks in advance!

See if my knowledge of the game helps you!

1) Taliban's enemies are all the other factions. You could also use the term Taliban-control.

2) There are more ways to do this.

First is patrol. This moves your police to LOC and Kabul.

Second is redeployment in the propaganda phase. Now you can move your police to COIN-control areas (also to provinces).

Finally you can create police in the provinces with the train op and there are also events that allows you to place police.


Hope this is the info you need. If not someone will hopefully help you further...

Have fun, it's a very cool game.

You add up the Government, Coalition, and Warlord pieces. The Taliban have to outnumber that total.

Patrol is one way. The other is the redeploy phase of the Propaganda Round.

Yep; for Provinces and Kabul that's exactly the same thing. In formal rules terms "control" isn't defined for LoCs though, which is why the Extort rule uses the "more Taliban than enemy pieces" phrasing instead.
