Game Notes

One command point is normally required to move each brigade or commander. However in certain circumstances the whole command can move for just two points

Command points are covered in Rule 3

When more than 16” from the enemy brigades can take multiple moves, providing that they have sufficient command points.

Multiple moves are covered in Rule 5

The rules used can be found at
