Take command of 4th corps

Prince Blucher (Average) – 4th Prussian corps - Engage

Poor Card

Game Notes

Blucher has taken command of 4th corps in anticipation of the Poor Card

It takes 1CP to move to corps commander and 3CP to take command

He can then use remaining 2CP to issue orders to 4th corps

Fortunate he did, as the Poor Card was drawn next

When 4th corps was drawn it was under CinC command, so no longer a poor commander
