Trying to get familiar with the game in the 2nd Kharkov Scn.

There, von Mackensen can play the "Initiative Card".

The manual states (p.72), that the selected unit gets "an offensive-combat bonus
and a speed improvement in extra action points based on the Initiative score of the
officer."

Whats that said "initiative score" of an officer & where to get information about it?

Thx for any help in advance.

I'd rather think "Initiative" can be understood as "Audacity".

I believe you are right Sir.

from manual

9.4. OFFICER ABILITIES
Command: Determines the amount of command points the officer gains each round.
Command points are necessary to play officer cards. This is the most vital statistic you
should keep an eye on. A high value means you can let the officer play a card often, a
low value means the officer will almost never be able to make a difference.
Audacity: Determines the effect of offensive action cards.
Determination: Determines effect of defensive action cards.
Charisma: Determines effect of morale action cards.
Intuition: Determines the effect of recon action cards.
Organization: Determines the effect of action cards played by officers in army or high
command HQs. Officers with high organization skills can best be appointed to hig

Pay attention to the colors of the cards and abilities.

I ran a bunch of experiments with the cards, and posted the results in The War Room last night.

Makes sense. Then it would be "Intuition".




As the "Initiative Card" gives off. combat & ap boni, which both relates to the "audacity" rating, therefore budds suggestion seems also to be reasonable.

So now we have two options to guess, what effect relates to which ability?

The cards are color-coded to correspond with the ability scores of the officer. Initiative is color-coded brown, so it relates to an officer's intuition score (76 in this example).
