Hello Folks,

I had posted this question on the S&S Forum but after 25 views in 2 days and not a single response I thought I might try my luck here.

What happens if your Evade move will take you OFF the table…?

Can't seem to find anything in the rules, I can make stuff up but would like to know the correct process according to these rules.

On page 15 of the rulebook I have the last paragraph states no units may leave the table, any unit that moves stops at the tables edge and may move normally the following turn. In the index in the back look for leaving the table.

Ahh, just read it, states "Units may not voluntarily leave the playing area. If a unit reaches the table edge in a pursuit move, it stops at the table edge, and can move normally on the next turn."

So I'll have to apply that to an Evading unit as I can find nothing else… I suppose that since all moves can be measured and if it looks your going to leave the table then you might as well stay and fight.

Thanks Bashy, knew some would one would help me out.
