Do you keep the Short Supply card in the Tactics pack? If played, what happens, especially against the French? We had it come up last night and said the French unit (Napoleon and the Old Guard) had to retire to Leipzig itself (he was at this stage close to exiting the battlefield. By the way, french won again, 18-16 this time.
1) TY to play it, appreciate and for reporting your feelings & questions
2) Check the few changes I recently did (2 special rules retired and 3 Iron Will Tokens only)
3) Don't hesitate to report your results on the scenario page of this site (top of each scenario)
4) About the Short Supply: Yes we let it in the deck but strangely it never happened in my testings LOL! OK your interpretation was logical. I would have say: If Allied: The unit must go to the closest free border hex (if several > choice) and if French: The unit must go to the closest free hex from the central hex but your idea of Leipzig is better. So let's say to the closest free hex in Leipzig (if no free hex > The closest outside Leipzig).
WARNING > I win a little more with the Allies than with the French so be sure to apply ALL the special rules (mostly the French WEAK Infantry and the general free movements OVER friend units etc.)
Best regards General
