If the attackers are Shock Attacking through any combination of front + flank, front + rear, flank + rear, there is a +4 DRM.


Infidel had the same problem (no bonus for left flank + right flank). It has been fixed in the FAQ.

12.3 Shock Resolution
Question: During the game I performed a Flank-Flank attack (opposite sides of an enemy unit). Why doesn’t this qualify for the +4 DRM?
Answer: It probably should. Change the wording of the third bullet to “If the attackers are attacking through two or more sides (Front, Rear, Left Flank, or Right Flank) of a unit there is a +4 DRM.”

Hi,
This was just brought to my attention, and we are changing the rules for Tours, and also for the related game on Metaurus, coming out with the second batch of games. Thanks for catching this, as it got through at least four layers of development and editing.

I just received my copy of Battle of Tours and am happy to report the error is fixed in both the main body of the rules and the chart on the back. Thanks!
