Re: Strange things

Oh, I thought the poor shots applied. So that would have brought the unit to a Zero die count.

Strange things

The other night while playing an AWI game had a couple of strange things; 1) Pulled 6 flags in a row - twice. Although I think the "last unit" should have taken the test twice, we decided not to. 2) I had a unit (2 groups) engage in fisticuffs, that were "poor shots", "no bayonets", and received a c...

Activations vs. Uncontrolled

Earlier I had asked about "if removing shock activates a unit when dealing with an uncontrolled volley". To which I did get a clear answer. Well, in the same vane, a unit is in a state of "Uncontrolled Volley" (it has fired before and now will continue to fire and load until placed under control). D...

Re: Troop Types

Thank you for the reply. In the scenario I've allowed the Dragoons troops to fire mounted, but as "Poor Shot" and requiring 2 actions to reload. The American Militia Dragoons varied in quality.The unit involved in this fight was reported to be a good out fit, even if their officer was blamed for the...

Troop Types

I'm putting together a scenario based upon an actual action during the AWI. I've run into a couple of issues with Conflict Characteristics of certain troop types. The weapon listed for British Light Dragoons is listed as Rifle. Is there a reason for this or is it an error? The Loyalist Dragoons are ...

Which comes first?

On the pulling of the Tiffin card which actions come first? Activating groups by use of flag cards or those actions required to be taken on the Tiffin? Here's why I ask; had an event in which a building caught fire with a unit in side, the next card was the Tiffin, the player whose group was in the ...

Re: Leader and Uncontrolled firing

As the individual who started this, I think I should post what I've gained from all the good points made here 9by way thanks to all). 1. That a Leader removing shock is not an activation. 2. Attempting to bring a unit under control, activates it, if attempt fails unit fires. 3. A players doesn't hav...
