Hello,

Do you think it's possible to ask to the owners of the spanish box to describe us some of the new rules of this expansion?

Maybe it's not permitted? Wich I would respect.

The one big new mechanic in the expansion is the Spanish Guerilla Action. That's been discussed already. The Spanish player plays a Scout card to collect a single card and a Guerilla Action token at the end of their turn. For the cost of a Guerilla Action token, the Spanish player can attempt to cancel the Command Card played by the French player on a future. The French player rolls a die when this happens to see if his orders get through anyway.

There are new terrain tiles for Walled Farms and Redoubts. Walled Farms have variant art but are otherwise the same as Towns. The new Redoubts function just like the ones in the core game.

Most of the rules are dedicated to describing the new French and Spanish units, which are summarized for game play on the player aid cards GMT released a coupe months ago. Also a description of the new unit icons.

Three-quarters of the bulk of the book is given over to the new scenarios.

That's it!

The one rule I think that makes playing the Spanish army less attractive is that most of their units must retreat 2 hexes for every flag.

So this means one must keep their units in support or with a leader if engaged in one-on-one combat... Which will lead to more frequent leader kills.

It's a bit of a blessing, too. If you have a Spanish unit reduced to 1 block and it's forced to retreat, you'll be glad of that two-hex move!

Don't forget to tell him about the lancer rules. Briefly, the refill any flag hits. You get the flag hit AND hits you roll with the additional roll.
