Tactician Cards for Battlecry

Cavalry Attack, Infantry Armed Attack, Counter Charge, Fight Back, Fall Back all mention "melee"

Infantry Close Combat mentions "Close Combat"

While the intent is clear to all those who have experience with C&C games, technically neither term/concept appears in the BC150 rules. I suggest the terms "melee" or "close combat" be replace by "battle/battled/battling [as appropriate] against an adjacent" or deleted all together (in the Case of Fight Back).

Similarly, the term "Battle Back" should just be "Battle." There is no "Battle Back" in BC150.

As i wrote on BGG, the TC´s are for those, who knows already also the other CC games and are indeed a little experienced, and therefore i used/took over the wording of the existing TC decks (not only from CCN, also some from MM44 and BL) :)

If there is a player, who plays/knows only BC, i wouldn´t advice him, to use the TC also :whistle:

My dice are the hell!

Fair enough, and certainly your call. I will just suggest that integration with the game would be slightly more seamless (and "professional"), and opportunities for rules ambiguities would be reduced, if the language were standardized with the rest of the game.

Ammo Shortage


if a unit doesn't move, can it suffer Ammo Shortage, or should this be read as ordered?

Hold the Line General, units battle back with
a) 1 die
b) 1 less die

should be read indeed as "after opponents movement phase"

Hold the Line General, units battle back with

should be read as "battle back with +1 die"

Drawing from the experience of Tricorne, I begin to wonder about having 2 Tactician Decks, a Rebel and a Union Deck.
For what are essentially 2 identical armies in BattleCry, separate decks might be a way to distinguish between the two.

As themes, I'd say the Rebel cards would focus on initiative and experience, whilst the Union would focus on firepower and steadfastness.
