Hello,

I've played my first RW game this weekend and my friend and I were wo dering something about the scoring of VP in the 1st scenario.

It says that when you control a Strategic Point, you get 1 VP for it. But when exactly is the point?

At the end the capturing player turn? If so, that's what we did but we fou d it really unfair to player #2 if player #1 managed to get to the 6th and winning point.

Shouldn't VP for controlling SP be scored at the beginning of a player's turn instead? This would give the other player a chance to remove the enemy infantry fromthe SP.

Could anyone clarify this for us?

Thanks!

Yes you're almost right:

You capture an SO if you have units in it at the end of your turn.

You control an SO if you have infantry in an SO at the start of your turn.

Don't forget both players must have the same number of turns. So if 1st player scores 6 points the 2nd player get a chance to capture it in their next turn.

We sometimes play that only controlling an SO scores at the end of a turn. That makes for a longer game

That totally makes sens. Thansk Mr. Hill. To us, that part wasn't clearly explained in the manual (or we didn't find part where it was explained)
