Hello wargamers,

After reading the rules a couple of times and test-run once a few turns. I have a question regarding costs.

During OPS the Activation Cost is equal to the number of nationalities in the space you want to activate (7.3).
During SR the Activation Cost is 1 point for SCU's and 3 points for LCU's (12.1).

Why these great diffences? It seems to me that is is very costly to SR, so move during OPS phase is cheaper. I think most of the time the stack is 1 nationality. I know you don't have the benefits of SRing to and from Reserve Box.

Or do I mis-interpret the rules?

No, I don't think you misinterpreted the rules. Sr'ing is very costly. But apart from being able to bring scu's from the RB on the map, the most substantial benefit from strategic movement is that you can redeploy forces over large distances (or even across the sea: the only way to bring German scu's into Africa).

Be careful when using SR -- there are some special rules that you need to remember. (For example: the German player cannot SR units into Russia for the first couple of turns; units that SR across water have to stop in the first land space; LCUs usually cannot SR into or out of the Reserve Box.)


Also, if I remember corectly, you must stop in the first desert space and you can't SR into or through Turkey.
