Forum rules
In addition to the general Forum Guidelines (see here: ... 30&t=15441), there are additional rules for posting in this forum.
1. Members should not refer directly to a specific situation in an active game. It is usually possible to provide an example of a similar situation elsewhere on the board.
2. It follows that links, images, game name and/or number should not be added to a post if the game is active.
3. Questions should only request rules be clarified and not request advice about how to resolve a situation.
4. When answering a question, members should restrict themselves to answering the question and not give advice on how to get around the situation.

Rule Clarification

Postby GlanePito » 16 May 2021, 07:00

New to the game and trying to get a firm grasp on the rules before i get a group together to play. I need some help with a 2 on 1 situation.


Russia A Bud-Vie A Gal S A Bud-Vie

Ottoman A Vie-Bud

Basically, will Vienna and Budapest switch or is Vienna displaced?

Also, what would happen if Russia had the same order but Ottoman did: A Vie-Gal ?

Thanks! This game seems great but there seems to be a lot of tricky encounters that will take time to get the hang of sorting out. I appreciate your help!

Unless a convoy is involved 2 units will never switch places, in this case the 2 would displace the 1 in either situation. If it's a 2 v 1 the 1 cannot stop the 2 by cutting a support.
