    "Ignorable" rout destinations

    There is no need to convolute if non-ignorable means anything other than just that. The dictionary definition of ignorable is sufficient to determine what non-ignorable means and we don't have to interpret or guess what the author of the rules meant when using it! The word does not lose any...

    "Ignorable" rout destinations

    This looks correct. On top of that, the word 'ignore' is not in the ASL index as some type of special word with special game meaning. Hence, its definition is found in the dictionaries. Obviously, one must also intentionally not give attention to (ignore) any illegal rout destinations. They...

    What happens when a stack containing a bloke with a flamethrower gets hit by KIA?

    The part of the stack without the flamethrower suffers a 1KIA. The flamethrower unit suffers a 2KIA. Just as you reported. How a KIA result is worked out is specified in the rules under A7.301. A7.301 - An IFT attack vs. units with different DRM in the same Location (e.g., in and out of a...

    Illuminating Rounds Episode 30

    It's overboard to take this personally. I was responding to Tuomo's point in his lengthy post and hadn't in the least paid attention to your activities, nor cited them. In fact I am in agreement with the idea that guards be allowed to deploy once -- that is, one time -- in order to handle...

    Illuminating Rounds Episode 30

    The usual counter-argument, but It's a lot worse and you are 'truly pure' not to be playing that way and good for you. As I'm equally sure you are not in the least hesitant using VBM freeze and you shouldn't be, because it's a baked-in tactic that is ASL to the bone. Whether one thinks it should...

    SSR in A27 King's Castle

    It's an oversized château called a palace because a king lived there. A rose is a rose is a rose whether or not it's rammed up the king's nethers and c'est la même chose pour le château, mon vielle. I don't think the king ate much pizza, microwaved or not. Pizza was invented in 1889. ?

    SSR in A27 King's Castle

    Indy, It just dominates the scene and the whole courtyard effect at weird angles is annoying to me. What can I say, it's visually unappealing and strange SSRs are needed to tone down its citadel effect. Board 6 is okay as long as the chateau from hell is not the objective. Perhaps Robin nailed...

    SSR in A27 King's Castle

    An easy fix is not necessarily a good one, and in this case is a lazy one. This designer probably nuked pizza while scribbling up the SSR. ;)

    Can Opel Blitz Truck unhook and unload

    Good question. Given that unhooking and disembarking are two distinct procedures and neither rule points to the other indicating simultaneous actions are allowed (except for the crew infantry which would become TI), I would say no. The truck is busy Unhooking for 8MPs then can get on with...

    SSR in A27 King's Castle

    True but that doesn't make the scenario fine. It's good to bring up these topics though for discussion and I'm glad Michael did it.

    SSR in A27 King's Castle

    How does this in any way explain that a friendly MMC unit on the second floor of the castle is going to cause a +1 CC DRM to a friendly MMC on the ground floor? And vice versa? While not doing the same thing to an enemy who doesn't happen to be positioned in the same way? Narrow and few openings...

    SSR in A27 King's Castle

    The SSR are absolutely clear and indeed emphasize with italics that the stacking limit is per hex and apply to each location at each level. So no, it's not some kind of typo. It's deliberate. It's beyond odd. There isn't a reason for this that makes any sense. One could make the case that the...

    Steep Hills Notes on The Korea Terrain Chart

    No, the same note is there for regular Hills on the Chapter B terrain chart. Plus, the rules themselves are clear, even if the chart seems overly clear. The rules trump the chart. It may look like unnecessary redundancy, but the note also clarifies that TEM of DOT is not always true for Steep...
