For some reason I can never remember how Routing works for this game. I do not know why there is a mental block, but it is there. There is chance that I will FINALLY get to teach this game, so I thought I would address this simple block with a simple flow chart!

What did I screw up this time?



Thanks.

Sorry, I messed it up and had to re-upload it. Should work now. (Hint: Never upload the wrong image!)

The only thing I see -ignoring the fact that you aren't using wounds rules- is that Rout confers 1 VP.

Maybe you want to take a look at this amazing file:

Because my wife took one look and said "no". Just a little too much for her to learn the basic mechanics from. This is an intro to the first "chapter" rather than the whole game.

Juno has posted a link to my flow charts which covers this on page 3.

Essentially how I present this is:
- Final result number (FRN) = Final Fire Strength + RNC.

- Does RNC cause a malfunction? If Yes, check for which weapon and effect

- If FRN > KIA then KIA
- If FRN = KIA then check wound and it no wound then KIA.
- If pinned and >= Panic then check for rout (and then check for wound, or take prisoner at RR5) / KIA (or berserk if Russian at RR5).
- If not pinned and >= Morale then pin man
- Then No effect

- If RNC has BREEZE, remove Smoke cards and adjust FRN if needed.

- Repeat with next man.

The problem with the way you have it is for men whose Panic value is less than their Morale value (i.e. Italians, partisans, etc.) so that per your flow chart, Panic <= FRN < Morale. Per your chart the first thing checked is FRN >= Morale (No, therefore no effect), but such a man still would panic (because FRN >= Panic value)

Also Panic makes no difference to an unpinned man and Morale no difference to a pinned one.

Thanks. Like I said, this rule has always caused me trouble. Your chart is fine for me, but it has a lot of extra stuff that will not help me teach my wife. She IS interested, which is half the battle. Actually, I am fine with the Good Order state, it is that darn Rout stuff that always throws me.

Is this clearer?Again, just trying to keep it simple for my wife.



Thanks. I appreciate it.
