Initiative

Post by frankpowerful » Mon Aug 21, 2017 3:53 pm

In the 4-5 games i played until now (both as USA and 7 or CSA) i never had the initiative (having the possibility to choose when to play the combat chit). Am I missing something?

Another game played to completion and still neither side ever had the initiative. I suppose this rule, though important, isn't in force (in the version i'm playing on Steam). It's several games now and i haven't seen a single occurrence of this feature.

Hi, initiative happens only on selected turns, depending on scenario.
You should check Turn Status to see if it's a turn with initiative or not.

As I said, in five games (different scenarios) i never saw that happen. I'm going to try a campaign game now...

frankpowerful, do you play CSA or USA? In the current scenarios only the CSA has initiative in selected turns.
