After movement, command tokens within 1 mile of an enemy token are revealed, showing if they are real or just bluffs. Real units are then deployed onto the table.

(1) When two command tokens end within 1 mile of each other, what is the exact order of operations? Which one is revealed first? Which one is setup first? When the first sets up, do they know whether or not the other one is real?

(2) When I move a command token so that is passes within 1 mile but ends more than 1 mile away from enemies, which units (if any) get revealed?

When we played, for number 1 above, we did not really think about it. It did not seem to really matter, since no cube can be placed closer to the enemy than the command cube, and no cube can be farther away than a 1/3 move. I think we had the non-moving player deploy first, but again, we did not see any real impact since they were 1 mile apart. If there was a fake, we removed it first.

For number 2, again we did not even discuss it. I am trying to remember how we did it. I think we moved a command cube, finished moving the command cube, then any commands that were or had been within 1 mile were revealed.

But I could see a specific rule for handling this.
