Hi

I have had a brief reading of the rules and I must say that I like the simplicity of the game.

However, one thing that strikes me about the rules is the lack of supply management, given the unit scale (regiments, up to 4 in an hex) & time (campaign lasting several months). Apparently, your units may become isolated and still operate normally. Is it represented by the player card hand size or was this just sacrified for playability purposes ?

Cheers
Rafael

Hello Rafael,

and great catch!

There is a supply system working behind the curtain, and we wanted it soft, so player do not bother too much with supply sources and supply lanes, but there is a thing, an important thing, to consider.

A Stack adjacent to an enemy stack, cannot move into another hex adjacent to an enemy stack (pinned).

This rule - simple - makes a stack unmovable if it surrounded (supply cut) by enemy stacks.

Does it help?
