General stevens Rules Quiz No.4 Fri, 01 February 2013 17:10
It sounds to me like you guys are getting revved up on this quiz idea. I don't think I can keep up the writing as fast and furious as I have been, so I think I may step back to one quiz a week instead of the one a day joy you have now been experiencing.

A few guys mentioned "prices". I believe what they meant was PRIZES!!!
All I can say is good luck with that idea. Laughing
I am needing all my resources just keeping up with thinking of questions.

Nevertheless, I did want to change things up a bit for this next quiz. So on this next quiz I have found about 28-29, or possibly even more answers. I will give an example that counts as one of the answers and then each person guessing afterward may give up to 4 distinct answers (in other words, you can't put the same answer someone else has already given).
I think it is going to take a while to answer all these possibilities. In this way, more folks get to play and enjoy. So here is my quiz:

The attack ability of Armor is an awesome thing. Not only do they fire 3 dice at full range when attacking another unit on open ground, but they may Close Assault and if they successfully eliminate the unit they are attacking or force it to retreat, they may battle again. The new players who see or experience this display of might soon become enamored with the Armor ability. They often lead off with Armor in every battle only to be dissapointed with the results. The begin claiming there are bugs in the Memoir '44 Online Game because their Armor failed to live up to expectations. They also usually lose those Armor units quickly to well entrenched infantry and so the real education begins.

Seasoned and more informed players (basically those who read the rules) know that there are limitations to those bohemoths and so we are more guarded and precise in our utilization of their abilities. Armor Units don't always get that full complement of dice in attacking and more often than you would first think, they also don't always get to ARMOR OVERRUN. And herein lies the question.

I can think of many different situations where an Armor Unit after an initial successful CLOSE ASSAULT does NOT get to TAKE GROUND and attack again. Almost ALL of these situations are due to Terrain restrictions. So list up to four distinct situations where this occurs in battle and be sure to mention the Terrain that caused the problem.

EXAMPLE:
Quote:

#1. An Armor unit moved two hexes adjacent to a HEDGEROW. It successfully Close Assaulted and eliminated the 1-fig enemy unit in the HEDGEROW... But it could not Take Ground because it didn't begin its turn adjacent to the HEDGEROW. ... And even if it could Take Ground, it could not battle again because entering a HEDGEROW. restricts the ability to battle. So NO OVERRUN!


So only about 28 more to go. Have at it guys and gals. I will make note in the Forum of incorrect answers and either you get them ALL in a weeks time or I let you off the hook with the unguessed ones.
