In my current solo game I have just played round 25 Week 1 of February 1942. The Germans finaly experienced Extreme Cold and the offensive stopped dead. The Soviets desperate to secure the line and fill the gaps decided to play the card manpower shortages and return 9 conscripts to the pool and gain 9 PP. The Card says Return during your OOB changes step. I believe that is an old terminology and it must have slipped the remake process to a number of seasons. What is the correct text for this card? Or have I misunderstood something??!
With the Arctic Theatre out of play, if the Germans capture Tikhvin (or hit the Arctic Theatre boundary further east), does this isolate ground units in Leningrad, or can they trace an OLoC through the Arctic?Or must the Germans capture Volkhov? Similarly, can Leningrad trace an RLoC through the Arctic Theatre? Thanks for any clarifications, Phil
Since I have posted here several times already, I've decided to talk about this card. I kinda don't understand in which scenario it can be useful. It only gives MP to Romania which are immediately taken back as soon as the Red Army retakes Chisinau. Romania is really under no threat of Morale collapsing until Soviets cross the border, so what is the point of giving Romania some MPs which are not needed under normal circumstances and do not benefit to keeping the morale high during dire times since Chisinau would be the first to fall?
