6.3 MOVEMENT PHASES
Keep in mind the following characteristic of movements of armies and fleets: after you move armies or fleets, they exist, in effect, in limbo until the Combat Phase. That is, the armies and fleets are gone from their prior location and not yet arrived at their destination. If a spy looks at either site, he won’t see the troops that are on the move.
You are allowed 20 moves in the Movement Phase (Armies and Navies combined).
6.3.1 Army Movement
You may move armies directly from one region to an adjacent region only. The only time armies can be moved to a non-adjacent region occurs when they are carried by fleets. If the adjacent region is friendly (that is, you control it) , your armies are reinforcements. If the adjacent region is neutral or controlled by an enemy, your armies are attacking and the battle will be resolved in the combat phase.
Method: select the region from which armies are to be moved. The region must be friendly with an army over 1 regiment (as a minimum of 1 regiment must remain in each region under your control). To set your target, select any region currently displayed in light blue. To move armies to destination, use the slider. Renew this as many times as you have moves remaining (the number of remaining moves is displayed in the upper part of the screen, at the right of the year display).
6.3.2 Fleet Movement
You may move fleets alone or fleets carrying armies from one port to another. A port is any region adjacent to an ocean. There are three forms of fleet movement:
a) Reinforcement – The destination is a friendly port
b) Naval Assault – Fleets carrying troops move to (thereby attacking) a neutral or enemy port
c) Naval Sorties – Fleets without troops attack a defending region’s fleets and return to their home port
Method: select the region from which navies are to be moved. The region must be friendly with a navy (no need to leave minimum fleet garrison in that case). To set your target, select any region currently displayed in light blue. To move fleets to destination, use the slider. Renew this as many times as you have moves remaining (the number of remaining moves is displayed in the upper part of the screen, at the right of the year display).
Fleets move only to ports. When transporting troops, you can load only 1 regiment per ship. The army slider will be locked if you try to exceed the ratio.
