My take on this.

The OL deck has 4 Air Sorties and unless stated otherwise in an OL scenario spcial notes, 4 are used.

Remember an OL deck used to be made up of 2 regular decks and each of those were limited to 2 AS in regular play when the Air Rules were in use. So 2 regular decks combined together to play an OL game would have 4 AS cards.

I think the mention of using 2 or 3 Air Packs is just to have the proper number minis of the right type that can possibly be in play at any one time. I do not think it implys that one should offically use 6 Air Sortie cards in an OL game.

As to the old OL rules vs the new ones, the newer version fleshed out some sections and covered a few others not touched upon by the older version. However, the newer version should be considered a supplement to the the old rules. One should default back to those for a fuller explanation, such as in the case of those multi-section cards which do indeed have the limitation of the only card which a FG may receive in a turn.


Excellent recap. You've put my mind at ease...

Geoff


I think TC has it correct. I think your frustration Geoff comes from the fact that the rules for much of Memoir'44 have developed over time and hence are only to be found by following a rabbit trail across several rule sets and expansions. In some cases, this development of a rule leaves gaps or apparent contradictions. I hope I am reading you correctly on this. Since the strategy in developing the FAQ is to clarify existing rules or to remedy seeming contradictions in those rules. And since there is a cloud surrounding this particular issue of Air Sortie card number. I think you are right to want to have it spelled out in the FAQ.

I am sorry if my comments came across as argumentative. Smile
