AP#27 Great Retreat

http://www.banquetdesgeneraux.com/banquet/AP27j.jpgOnce the event hit the table, the Germans would often refrain from any further attacks on that turn, and the Great Retreat seldom materialized on the mapboard. I made this card a dual use: normal event/CC event. Permitting the event to be played as a Combat Card will allow the Russians to implement the event in at least one combat situation, with a nice surprise effect.

Of course, since the event also contains a precious +1 War Status, it would have been too generous to let it be played it off sequence as a Combat Card, without spending an action round, so the event can only be played during the opponent’s round by forfeiting the incoming round.
