Hi, I'm just starting at this great game.
From the rules:
"As soon as the defender retreats into a siege, the region around the Stronghold is left open to the enemy, who may immediately advance into region. If the attacking Army chooses to advance, the Stronghold is now considered under siege and the battle is over."My question is:
If the defender retreats into siege, and the attacking army chooses not to advance. Does the defender get at removing any unit in excess of five or does he actually never retreated into the siege?
Thanks in advance.
