If the Russian player has the Stavka card can he play it anytime or must it be played in his card phase. For example, can he play it after the German has declared his battles in the German combat phase.
This brings up the general question of whether there are limitations on any cards as to when they can be played other than those that say they must be played immediately.
For that card you can play it anytime It should have stated so on the card I guess. But this was my first wargame design ever, so that card working is definitely an ongoing expetience.
Here is below the upcoming 2016 reprint edition card, I revised all the events on all the cards (the Stavka event was moved to card #33). I'll post these soon on BGG and Consimworld. The new improved cards will alsoe be available separately from GMT.
