Is it legal to declare a dash with a unit entering from offboard? For instance I'm playing CH 164 Cry of the Valkyries, and the Deluxe Boards g (playing area is I-O) and c (playing areas A-G) are in use. This "creates" three possible dash hexes: gH1(offboard) thru gI1 to gJ0, and cH2(offboard) thru cG2 to cF1, and cH4(offboard) thru cG5 to cF5.

Don't see why not, but since the offmap hexes are considered to be Open
Ground (A2.51), an Enemy w/ (potential) LOS to that offmap hex would
negate your Dash, while others w/ no LOS to that offmap hex would not -
see last 2 sentences of A4.63.

Without expressing an opinion on dashing from off board, I will say that while offboard locations may be open ground, they have no LOS to on board locations. A unit can dash from open ground hex to open ground hex if the firing unit does not have los to the open ground hexes.

Conclusion on Dash and Double Time question

Because of Brian W is right in:

- no LOS to offboard setup hexes - A 2.51 5th sentece
- being out of LOS is being in non-OG for Dash purposes - A 4.63 2nd sentence

I would conclude it is possible to enter from offboard by Dash.


To me arises the question, if it is possible to enter from offboard using Bypass in the onboard hexes and in the onboard half-hexes mentioned in A 2.6 (the half-hexes containing a part of woods like 2X0).

Any comments on this?

Isn't this a moot question.

In order to ewxecute a dash, you have to CROSS a road. Iknow of no boards where a road is on the board edge and runs parallel to the board edge. :cool:

To begin the examination of the possible boards, why not look at Board number...1 ?
K1, M1, O1, U1 seem to fit well to an entry dash.
And what about 2W1, 5U10, 5W10, 6E10, 6G10, 8E1, 8G1, 8M1, 8O1, etc.? :smoke:

OK - so you are saying a "diagonal" dash acrross the road which is perpidicular to the board edge. Yes - I would agree that is legal (although why not just enter from offboard on the other side of the road to begin with ?) :surprise:

In some scenarios, off-board does not mean physically off-board, but outside the playing area.

No. These examples have the road running along the board edge, parallel to it... Give them a look.:crosseye:
