A newbie question

Recommended Posts

Sorry if my question may seem stupid, but I'm just going to play my first game of ToI and I'm not sure of the meaning of the action phase.

If., for example, the scenario says that each player has 3 action per round, it means that player 1 does his 3 actions and then player 2 does his and the game proceeds to the command phase?

I found this part of the rulebook a bit confusing because it says: 'After a player has completed all the actions  of his action turn, his opponent must complete his action turn, after which the first player again takes another action turn, etc.'

From the above it follows that you can have several action turns (for example 3 actions each) in your action phase? So when would you decide when your action phase ends?

I'd be grateful if somebody answered my probably stupid question, but I'd like to play it right and I haven't found any film on the Internet where I could watch the correct order of the phases.

Thanks

Kacper

you do have several turns during the action phase.

Eksample:

German player has initiative and activates 3 units, one at the time.
Then the US player activates 3 units.
German player 3 units.
...
Until alle units have been activated, killed or placed into OP-fire.

Thanks. So everything's clear now.

You take 3 actions, then your opponent takes 3 actions, then you, etc. Until there are no more actions to take on either side, then proceed to the command phase.  That's why you're given the option to fatigue a unit as an action. If you don't want to move or attack, you fatigue 3 units, your opponent takes 3 actions, and so on.

By the way, definately not a stupid question. Newb question - yes. Stupid question - no. The format is so different from any other war game so it's hard to grasp at first.
