Overlord and Overlord Air Pack FAQ questions Tue, 15 January 2013 04:12
My son and I are working through all of the official scenarios, and we are approaching Overlord and the Air Pack. I have a few questions...

1) In the original Overlord rules, it was explicitly stated that Recon in Force, Pincer Move, and General Advance could be the only card given to a field general. This is not stated in the Operation:Overlord rules. Is this just an oversight? or did the rules change? I think it is the former, as it still says that the cards must be in two different sections if the Field General is given two cards -- and that cannot happen with these three. However, a clarification would be nice.

2) My second question is with regard to using the Air Pack or Air Packs with Overlord. In the original Overlord/Air Pack addendum, it says that you can use up to three Air Packs. This would seem to give very different Overlord matches depending on the number of Air Sortie cards in the deck.
I understand that each field general could conceivably have his own plane on the board, so three Air Packs would be necessary to have three planes of each type for the Generals.
However, it's always bugged me that I don't know how many cards to use. In fact, in the Overlord supplement under several of the older Overlord scenarios, it states "Air rules are optional...Give the Allied player one Air Sortie card and shuffle the remaining card(s) into the deck." Note that it is not specified whether 1, 3, or 5 cards are shuffled into the deck.
Given that the specific Overlord deck that comes with Operation:Overlord only contains 4 Air Sortie cards, is that the offical number of cards to use in Overlord Scenarios? It would seem to be the proper ratio, given that 2 cards are used with regular battles and the deck is twice as large.

Any input on these matters would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Geoff
