Special Game Notes
The Austrian commander must detach one brigade to guard the bridge at Passau before the game starts. This brigade will not be available unless he sends orders to it. These orders can only be sent at the end of campaign move 16 or 17 – not during the wargame.
A new rule is being tested. When the corps commander wants more than one brigade to carry out the same order, and providing that they are within 2” of each other, he can use a “corps order”. Both commanders are Average so the cost of this type of order will be two command points.
