  No playable cards Sun, 17 October 2004 00:58
I have a gameplay question:

What if I cannot play any of my cards?

Should I just discard one of my card, get a new one and then end my turn without doing anything more?

that's horrible cause if you can't use any of your cards, then you always have to rely on the one card you'll draw to be a good one. you could be stuck quite some time if all your troops are in one single area, and it's not always the case that you gain something from moving them to another flank just to be able to use your stupid cards...

i think this is a bit of a flaw, that kinda cost me a game earlier today.

had i had one card, just one card for the centre, then i could have attacked a unit with only one figure left, full on, and that would have won me the game. instead, i didn't have any usefull cards for several turns on end, and got slaughtered before i could get that one unit...

of course you can implement house rules but i would like to know if someone implemented something like this and what their findings were?

I don't see having no playable cards as a flaw. My understanding is that the cards represent orders from higher up the chain of command. It's up to you as the player to interpret their orders as you see fit.

So if you do have a can't lose option in one sector but no cards to play for that sector. It means high command has different priorities to yours.
