Rear Support V2

Post by PyrrhicVictory » Fri Jan 11, 2013 4:34 pm

The Red Block is a BG of 12 Av Pike. The Blue is 8 Ave Off. Spear. The block behind is a BG of 6 Av Def Spear. The different colors represent the three file of two bases. Assume that all BGs are Steady, and all bases of the Def. Spear are within 8 MU.

Does the block of Pike count as supported?

Does the block of Off Spear have support?

The way the rule reads, bases that are in base contact with those bases that are directly to the rear of the "supported" BG count towards the number of bases needed to meet the "1/2 of original number BG bases". I.E. does the Yellow and Orange files support the Off. Spear? Does the Orange count towards supporting the pike since they are in base contact with the Yellow file which is directly to the Pike's rear?

Sounds simple, but I want to be sure I am reading the rule correctly.

Thanks
