Hi,
Can you have multiple column shifts if using multiple soviet shock units in the same combat?
Thanks

No! Only one bonus. See it as the same thing as the Armor bonus (just one shift).

It was an oversight in the rules (not explained) as in the very first VPG edition of the game there was only one "Shock" unit and I did not adjust the rules to take into account the second one.

You are most welcome.

of course, if somebody can make a case for "one shift per unit" I am all ears and can think about changing the rule, but this would mean adding another exception...

Unless... We would also have to do "one shift per unit" for the Tank/panzer units too... Mhhhh... this could be an interesting optional rule to test.

I've played NR 10 times. With that experience (and my personal preference), I feel maxing column shift for shock armies to one is elegant and sufficient. Why put chrome where none is needed?

I agree with Matt! I haven a dozen games behind me and I think the game mechanics are perfect! Just few questions from a lazy wargamer...

No problem. I am somewhat "lazy" too. This is why I will always try to make my games as small and easy to play as possible... meeple
