Hi
I am just setting up the game with no variants in play and the rules say to place a hidden marker in each starting area with an emplacement. I have 11 hidden counters but it looks like 12 starting emplacements, what am I missing here?

Cheers,
Bill

Hi Bill,

The Robinson's drift area does not get a hidden marker. Not sure where it says this but I remember from my initial deployment.

good luck with the game. I'm having fun muddling my way through, making the usual first run mistakes but enjoying it.

Paul

Hi Paul

I appreciate the help but still seem to be short 1 hidden marker(I have 11 total). I did set up Vrede, Senegal & Frankfort in Robinson's Drift area with no hidden marker.

After that I have:

3 emplacements in 4th group which includes 1 artillery sub group

3 emplacements in 3rd group

5 emplacements in 2nd group which includes 2 sub groups and

1 emplacement at Hlangwane for 1st group for a total of 12

Again I appreciate the help!

Cheers,
Bill

Hi again Bill,

I had interpreted the instructions as one hidden marker per emplacement regardless of the number of units. I don't know if that is the correct way but it does put one hidden marker in all spots except Robinson's drift. I wish I had my rules handy but I think I found that information around rule 2.3, 2.4???

Have fun,

Paul

Hi Paul

Ok I think I have it now, rule 2.4 states 1 emplacement marker showing hidden in each starting area with an emplacement. The mistake I made was there are 2 emplacement spots with 2 Boer groups in the 1 area near the railway bridge on which I was placing hidden markers on both spots.

Thanks for the help and enjoy the game as well.

Cheers,
Bill
