I’m playing the attrition battle scenario and I have a little question.
A) An infantry unit (2 or 3MP) near a Major River cross it at cost all MP. Must the unit flip to move mode to do it or can do it in combat mode? B) the infantry in combat mode win a combat across the river an advance after combat: can it do it in combat mode or Must change mode in movement mode?
My favorite 18xx game for six players is two games of 1846 with three players each.
(A) Combat Mode is okay.
(B) Not only may it advance in Combat Mode, but it must advance in the same mode it fought the combat in, because you may not voluntarily switch between Movement and Combat except at the start of your movement of the unit in the Movement Phase.
