8/8 FREE, PROTECTED
I've come across a weird situation that I found no resolution for in the rulebook. What happens if the last card left in the Sauron player's hand is the 'Retreat' but he cannot use it (due to the adjacent field being full or occupied by an enemy piece)?
Is the piece killed, or does the battle take place like he couldn't retreat?
Sorry if I'm missing something obvious or this has been discussed.
You can always play the card. You may not always be able to execute what the card says. In this case you play Retreat but cannot move so the fight is resolved with your combat strength being what is printed on the unit.
