1) But the way it's worded, it COULD mean that I can move to any location that has zero, one, or two active fighters (in which case it would be unclear if I could bring active fighters along with me).
Yup, we caught this at proofreading too. The final version will say:
"Move to any location. You may take up to 2 active fighters with you."
2) Player aid. I think there should be player aid cards (separate ones for both rule sets). Just listing the phases and basic steps on the front, and perhaps a bit more description for the seven actions on the back. Since you're separating the rules into two books, I would strongly suggest making the back cover of each book have this information (with a bit more description). The player aid doesn't fit a card (believe me we tried), but we are definitely putting them on the back of both rulebooks.
The Zhukov rulebook will have the entire Zhukov turn (Soviet, Revolutionary, SPA), the Conflict rulebook will have the Soviet & SPA on it (as the Revolutionary is exactly the same in the 2 modes, and this way the Soviet player can hold onto one player aid, while the revoultionaries get the other one.)
I'm definitely looking forward to getting my physical copy of the game.
Thanks for the support and the interest to ask!
