Since my opponent is retreating the Russian army deeper into the Motherland, I thought that I would play Ambition to get some easy prestige. As luck would have it, a city that I had almost completely surrounded (Tim in the north) was my objective, for 1 prestige point.
This is on the second turn of Case Blue...version 1.02c (from the beta).
Some time during my turn, where I did some attacks around Sevastopol mainly, and moved up along the main front, I notice that I had 11 prestige instead of 10.
Then I attacked Tim and took it.
On the next turn, I gained a prestige point for taking Tim....heartened by my easy prestige, I play Ambition again (this time for 7pp instead of 5). I get a harder objective for 3pp deeper behind the line. Again, I notice that sometime during my turn, I gain another prestige point, apparently for free, bringing my total to 13 (having gained one for Tim, and it seems, one point for each Ambition card).
Third turn....I play Ambition again. And again, I gain a prestige point.
For fun, to investigate the problem further, I open up a new Case Blue against the computer. I immediately pick ambition, gain an objective hex. As soon as I attack a hex (ANY hex), I get a prestige point. This is easily repeatable.
Shhhh...dont anyone tell my opponent
