The enemy raid flowchart says to add 2 counters in the American period. Is this +2 in addition to the +1 counter per fort in play described on the 'Army of the West' card?
I have always played it that way (stacking the +2 during the American Period from the flowchart with the +1 per Fort in play from Army of the West). I am not aware of anything that would contradict this interpretation, though I can see the thought process. Given that the Enemy Raid Flowchart does seem to allow for the +2 to change for other board conditions, I would assume that they are additive.
