Movement clarification question

Postby rayman47 » 09 Dec 2020, 21:18

Say I have a fleet in the Norwegian Sea and a fleet in Norway. I want to move one fleet from Norwegian Sea to Norway and the other from Norway to Skagerak. However, there is an opposing fleet in Sweden that also moves to Norway. Will my moves be successful, or will Norway be unoccupied since my fleet moving in and an enemy fleet moving in would cause a standoff?

Norway to Skagerrak works fine.
The Norwegian Sea & Sweden units bounce in Norway, which is then vacant at the end of the turn.

Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished.

V is of course correct. A variant - if the opposing Fleet in Sweden instead was ordered to Skagerrak, then Norway-Skaggerak bounces, therefore Norwegian Sea-Norway also bounces, and at the end of the phase all three Fleets are where they started.

Welcome to PlayDip, and I hope you enjoy the game and the community.
