I had a play through with one of my sons. I brought my fleet and ground troops into a vacant system. To my surprise, it was the system containing the rebel base. I was not prepared to do battle with all his forces. So immediately after activating and entering the system, I retreated from it before a battle could ensue. Was that a legal move or did we have to have a round of combat before I could retreat?

Retreating is the last phase of a round of combat, so no, what you did was not legal. You have to fight a round first.

Technically, retreat phase is the second to last part of a combat round. The last phase is the "next round" step. Usually nothing happens in this step, but it is when the DSUC would be destroyed if it was the only imperial ship in space with rebel ships. Also, this is when structures would be destroyed if they were the only rebel ground units on the ground with imperial ground units.

Fair enough Regardless, it's not at the beginning, so you still have to do a round of combat

Where is the point about structures? I was trying to find it the other day and couldn't.

On page 4 for the Reference Guide, in the Combat section, right-hand column, under "IV Next Round"; it's the first bullet point.

Thanks for the response. I now see how it is laid out in the rule book even though its not stated specifically. In any case I still accomplished my goal with the game: spending time with my kids.

And that goal is far more important than anything the rulebook can ever provide

Forgive me for asking if this is too personal, but how old are your kids? I'm curious as to how young you've managed to teach this game to- and I'm hoping my sister will let me teach my nephew some games in the future (he can understand Chutes & Ladders, but loses interest quickly).

I know you were asking someone else, but for what it's worth, my daughter is 13. I've been playing games with her for years, though with Rebellion I probably wouldn't have tried playing it with her any younger than maybe 10 or 11.
