  Air Power Mon, 01 November 2004 21:36
I just played Scenario 3: Sword Beach a second time.

Axis' first move as the Air Power card, the lucky #é@!!,##

The card says that for each die matching the unit, grenade or star a hit is scored. But since none of my units (he attacked the central group (1 armor, 4 infantery) could retreat, all flags count as hits to!
In this case that means 8 guaranteed hits!!!!!!
(needless to say I lost the game, again!)

My question is who gets to choose ;
1)which units takes the hit for grenades or stars
2)which units take the hits for not being able to retreat.

Thanks

The Axis only rolls one die per unit it attacks with the Air Power. So, he rolls a maximum of 4 dice, one for each of a maximum of 4 units in a group of adjacent units. At most, this will remove one figure for each of the units attacked, for a maximum total of 4 figs (one per unit, worst case).
if he rolls a tank while attacking one of your infantry, it's a miss. If he rolls an infantry while attacking your tank, it's also a miss. All other rolls are a hit (of one fig, not more) since you cannot retreat, being on the edge of water.

I should have read the card better!
We rolled all dice at once instead of - as you explained - by hex that was attacked.

I still have a question, Can you choose to attack the same hex multiple times in this case?

Thanks
