Question about Centurions Reverse #216. The set up instructions for the first group of Chinese says "set up on board 83, on/south of hexrow S, less than or equal to 4 hexes from 81T4. This is not possible, so either it should be 83T4 or set up should be on board 81. Does anyone know which it is?

83T4.

W10.22

I think J2 is a legal IB placement. If it's not, let me know and don't worry about the following.

W10.22 is confusing me with it's reference to alternate hex grain (A9.221). As I understand A9.22, F3 to J2 does not match the definition of an alternate hex grain. So as I read W10.22, both H2 AND H3 would be illuminated. My gut is telling me that was not the intent though. So I'm asking for clarification when you don't have a true alternate hex grain as defined by A9.221.

I've indicated what I think the intent is here...a possible IB path of hexes from F3 to J2. The other option would be hex H3 instead of hex H2. But as I strictly read W10.22, both H2 AND H3 would be illuminated.

I suppose it might not be entirely ASL physics.

If there would be huge mass in H1 and H4 respectively, maybe the effects of curvature of space would kick in, so that the light might illumine both H2 and H3. :D

Gloster Hill. Daytime. Bugles declared. Non-IPM. Chinese unit WISHES to move. When does the UN Jitter Fire DR happen, before or after Assault Movement/ Non-Assault Movement is DECLARED. Ie: is the WISH indicated by the movement declaration, or separate from it?

Bugles are declared at the start of the MPh (W7.8).
Before actual movement (W7.82) "...wishing to move to a new hex in that MPh, the CPVA player makes a DR.." Indicates that the move has not YET been made. So the Jitter DR is made, results if any applied, then the CPVA moves the unit/s declared just prior to be about to move.

And there is the (slightly obscured within the rules) power of Bugles. Getting some UN units under First Fire sure can help CPVA to move across that open ground.

The Chinese put a lot of effort into brass (and other) instruments during the war. They were supposedly developing a military tuba but the signing of the armistice ended the work. There were experiments with glockenspiels too, but they did not go well.

The glockenspiels were going well under the brother-in-laws Ding and Dong, but Ding got invalided out due to wounds and Dong's continuation experiments were thought to be too funereal.

Interestingly enough it was Mr. Ting that put an end to the entire experiment because it simply didn't have the intended impact that was envisioned for the project (it just did have a ring to it).

Their grandsons coincidentaly joined Dell Computers and created a WiFi pet distress alarm line of products:
"Ding, Dong, Dell, Pussy's in the well!".

That must be before he met his wife A. Ling.

The US tried Cowbells but despite the demand for more by the troops and their commander Gen. C. Walken, they were deemed a failure.
