Game Notes

Because there is only one Poor commander in this game we are not using the Poor Card

Rule 3 refers

All Prussian corps have made multiple moves because they are still more than 16” from the nearest enemy

Rule 7 refers

They have also taken advantage of corps moves to make maximum use of available CP to move closer to the enemy

Rule 3 refers

A commander in chief can take command of one brigade each move

He can then only issue orders to that brigade

Rule 2 refers
