Two questions as I read the rules.

1. I set my first game up and there are 2 battalions in the Staging area. Are you penalized at the very start of a Campaign if enemies are present in the Friendly Transit (-2 SO) or Friendly Staging (-6 SO) areas?

2. Similar to question 1,are these penalties assessed before each battle or before each week?

I dont have the rulebook in front of me but if I remember correctly its at the end of each week when you adjust your SO points that you would lose those particular SO points.

#2 You are correct Mike, that rule about adjusting your SO Points can be found on page 21.

#1 You do not get penalized at the start of the campaign for the Enemy Battalions in those range bands.

And I guess you know which two battalions to attack in the first week.

Unenviable.

I find it odd that 4 of the 12 German Assault Battalions begin in the Friendly Staging area but no German battalions begin in the Friendly Transit. With some of the high point value objectives, you are very likely to get 1 or 2 in Friendly Staging. And you could get unlucky with your battalion draw and end up with 4 battalions in the Friendly Staging area. You'd basically have to destroy 2 of them and then suck up the 12 SO points lost (in addition to any battalions that might move from the Front to Friendly Transit).

I've had a few draws where I could look ahead and realize that I am either going to lose this immediately or after the first week. I've done a little house ruled redraw, so I could enjoy the game rather than just lose immediately.
