First of all, thanks for taking the time to read my question. I'm new to PoG and BGG so I tried to search for the answer but was unsuccesful. My questions are:

Can a non-adjacent unit attack an enemy by going through a friendly army? I.e. GE 2nd army attacking thru Metz and the static GE 4th & 5th armies vs. FR 5th in Sedan?

Is a unit OOS if they have to trace a line of supply thru a neutral country early in the war? Does it matter if that country enters the war as AP or CP?

Thanks again for your time!

Re: Rules question for a beginner
(1) You can only attack an enemy unit with your own units that are adjacent to the enemy unit.

(2) You cannot trace supply through a neutral country space.

Hi Kasey,
welcome to PoG. You're in for a ride!

It would be great if you use the "edit" button above the date of your post, to change the title of your thread. Something like "2 beginners Qs: Attacking and OOS". That way, new players after you will find it easier to find the answers they're looking for in the Rules forum.

Best of luck with this great game. Don't hesitate to ask questions. Response times are really quick, esp. with Eric Brosius! laugh

Thanks a bunch for taking the time to do that.

Here's 8 bag, you can use it for instance to buy a Paths of Glory microbadge.

Hope you'll enjoy BGG as much as we do.
