do non player check for mines? Also, do you check for mines after a successful attack and advance? Finally, if your unit is destroyed by the mine check, do you still gain control of the space or not?
Hi bassman211! The following paragraph can also be found in the Manual, which should answer your questions:
"When a unit moves into a map tile that neither side
controls yet, he places one of his control markers on it.
If the map tile has an enemy control marker, that marker
is replaced by the phasing player’s control marker, but
the unit must check for minefelds. Draw a card from the
Action Card Deck and if the Tactical Modifer is -1 or
-2 the unit card loses one point of Morale, noted by a -1
Morale marker. The control marker remains even if the
unit card vacates the map tile. No minefeld attacks take
place when a unit advances after combat."
