Just played Delaying Action solo and have a few questions.

How does the card "counterattack" work in this scenario?
How do i choose flags and crosses? should i just pick whatever seems most beneficial to the Ceasarian army, or should I instead pick what would be best for the Numidian to simulate fiercer opposition?
Do i take flags for units that are killed by rolling flags or crosses?
What happens when i roll two symbols that order a unit of which i only have one type?

thanks!

1 month late and nothing official in this response, but I see three ways to handle it:

1) remove Counter Attack's from the deck.

2) when Counter Attack is played, the orders from the previous Numidian turn are given to the Roman Army - whether the Numidian Commander gets to choose which unit is ordered would be another consideration.

3) roll 2d and operate the same as a Numidian turn would go - whether the Numidian Commander gets to choose which unit is ordered would be another consideration.

In the effort of full disclosure, I've never played this scenario, solo or otherwise. I imagine the recommendation for solo play is there because I can readily see a face-to-face game of this scenario ending with the Numidian player punching the Roman commander in the face laugh
