NYC couldn't retreat to "Erie River"

Postby Oriflamme » 26 May 2020, 21:30

Hello to the Powers that Be -

In a game entitled "Let's Try Again", my Spanish fleet in New York City was forced to retreat. I chose what is labeled on the map as "Erie Canal" as my avenue of retreat; even checked it out on the order solver. However, when the phase was over, my retreat to the "Erie River" had been denied. Of course it had, as there is no "Erie River".

I think this is an easily fixed bug. I hope so.

You cannot retreat to the original location of the army that dislodged you. That's what happened in this case, because the mexican army that dislodged you out of NYC had come from the Eerie Canal.

Also you can't retreat to a space where there has been a bounce during the previous order phase.

However the inconsistency in labeling the space would still be a bug. I think. I don't know which is right, although I'd assume "Canal".
