Move orders via convoy

It's okay to suggest new rules variants in this forum, but proposing new *maps* should be done in the linked "New Map Variant Proposals & Voting" subforum.

My house rule is more or less a generalization of NP's observations about convoys working more like supports. Should I take it to a new thread?

Also, NP, the 1971 rules are terrible for 2 reasons: they allow contradictions, and more importantly they also reverse the rule we like that says if any convoy path is valid then the convoy succeeds. (It says if any convoy path is BROKEN then the move FAILS. We definitely don't want that!)

Do it. NP put it nicely. No right of refusal!

I guess Backstabbr isn't going strictly by the '71 rules then. They allow multiple convoy paths.
