Multi-Player Rules #3

zhukovTwo more options when playing with multiple battle groups are included in this post.




Nominated Commanding Officer

In this variant, one player is nominated the CO who controls his own battle group as well as having access to all Wild Dice on his side. Off-table artillery may be pooled or kept in support of its own battle group.

Shared Commanding Officer

In this variant, players pool their Wild Dice and Staff Orders and decide as a team how to use them.

This option is not recommended for players who can’t agree on how to use their dice as it can lead to a very long game…
