Do I understand correctly that before you play a scenario you get one roll of two dice, and therefore get one reserve unit? Or if I roll two armor symbols, do I get two units? The CB on page 3 is unclear. It says that "for each unit symbol rolled, you may choose to exchange a reserve token from your Strategic Reserve Pool for a unit of the type just rolled (grenades are wild, allowing an artillery, infantry, or armor unit to be chosen)." It then says, "you must carefully consider whether you want to call up the unit you just rolled or not." So, do you get one unit per roll per scenario, or do you get two if you roll two armor, infantry, or your choice on grenades? I played it as a possibility of two units-if you rolled two units.

In case I lost you, there are two questions here.
1. Do you only get one roll per scenario?
2. If you roll two units or a grenade and a unit, do you get two units if you want to spend the reserve tokens?

1. You roll two dice before the scenario starts, yes.
For some scenarios the winning bonus allows you to roll 3 dice and choose which two you would like to use.

2.You can bring in two units if you roll two units, yes. But since reserves are limited for the campaign, if you use your available reserves early on, you have no left for the latter stage of the campaign. That is why you have to consider when to call them up. Should you use them early to hopefully gain an advantage or keep them for later to make up for a disadvantage or catch up the enemies lead?

Did that answer your questions?

Yes, thank you, I did it right! I just wanted to make sure I understood this correctly.
