Last Update: May 3, 2009 (new text in blue)
PRINTING TIP: I suggest copying the text below and pasting it into Microsoft Word. Then in Word you can reformat it as desired before printing.
English Power Card, Henry VIII "card":
After the line with the Card Bonus, add the following sentence:
"Ignore English troops in Reformation/Counter Ref rolls."
Reference Card, Field Battle Result:
Second bullet should just read "Defender wins ties". Remove the text "... unless eliminated."
Rule Book, Page 11, 9.1 Negotiations, Fifth Bullet, Last Sentence:
Change the phrase "a major power's capital" to "a major power's own capital". You can yield control of another power's capital (for instance if you have conquered it and want to trade it back to that power).
Rule Book, Page 14, Restrictions At All Times:
Change the second bullet to read:
This restriction applies when the Six Wives of Henry VIII card is played, making it impossible to declare war on Scotland with this card when England and France are allied. (Note this is the same ruling as in previous versions of the errata; however, this change is a cleaner way to implement the rule update).
Rule Book, Page 14, Spring Deployment Restrictions:
Add a new bullet:
Rule Book, Page 16, 12.2 Unfortified Space, Requirements:
Add a fifth requirement bullet that reads:
"o The space is not occupied by land units from another power (unless those units are allies of the active power)."
Rule Book, Page 17, Land Movement Procedure, Third Bullet:
Replace the contents of this bullet entirely. The new text is as follows:
Rule Book, Page 17, Land Movement Procedure, Fifth Bullet:
Change the word "it placed" to "their power placed". The bullet then reads:
Rule Book, Page 21, Assault Procedure, Step 11, Last Sentence:
Change "Step 3 of the Peace Segment Procedure" to "Step 6 of the Peace Segment Procedure".
Rule Book, Page 24, Naval Combat, Step 9, Second Sentence:
Reword to now say: "If the combat occurred in a sea zone, the loser retreats to an adjacent port under its control (free of enemy naval units) or an adjacent sea zone (also free of enemy naval units)."
Rule Book, Page 25, Piracy Procedure, Step 2, First Bullet:
Change "2 dice for each naval squadron of the targeted power or another power that is at war with the Ottoman..." to just read "2 dice for each naval squadron of the targeted power..." (If a power at war with the Ottoman had a squadron in the sea zone, a naval combat would have occurred and forced one of the powers to retreat).
Rule Book, Page 27, Left Column, Last Sentence in Column:
Change "Immediately upon completion of a Full Bible translation, the Protestant power may make 6 Reformation attempts..." to "Immediately upon completion of a New Testament translation, the Protestant power may make 6 Reformation attempts..." (The information on the result of a Full Bible translation appears in the following sentence).
Rule Book, Page 30, Counter Reformation Procedure, Step 1, Second Bullet:
Add to the end of this bullet: "... (even if across a pass). (This makes Counter Reformation and Reformation attempts consistent with each other in this regard.)
Rule Book, Page 33, Land Unit Return Home Procedure:
Replace the text in this section with the following (updated text appears in bold):
1. Check Stacking Violations: Review all land units that are stacked in fortified spaces controlled by their power (other than the major power in question's home capital). For each such fortified space that contains more than 4 units, the power must return the excess units to their capital (minor power units could also optionally return to a minor power home key). Other land units in these spaces also have the option of returning to their home capital (or minor key for minor power units) if desired, even if not overstacked. The stack takes attrition (see above) if its path must cross a space in unrest or not under friendly control or if its path ends on a space in unrest.
2. Return Units:
Now review all land units in unfortified spaces and in fortified spaces
not controlled by their major power. These units must either:
The player may split a stack at this time, choosing to move some units to the nearest fortified space and returning the rest to the home capital (or minor power key). If more than 1 fortified space is “nearest” (i.e. they are equidistant from the stack’s current location), the player may move units to each of these spaces, as long as the limit of 4 land units is observed. The stack takes attrition (see above) if its path must cross a space in unrest or not under friendly control.
3. Return Army Leaders: If a space containing an army leader is vacated during this procedure, that army leader must either accompany one of the land units leaving the space throughout the entire winter move or return to the power's capital.
Rule Book, Page 33, 19.5 Replacements:
Change the first two sentences to read: "Each power now adds 1 regular to its capital if it is under friendly control and not in unrest. The Hapsburgs check both capitals and can receive 2 regulars at this time if both capitals are controlled and not in unrest."
Rule Book, Page 39, Schmalkaldic League, Third Bullet:
Add a sentence to the end of this bullet. The full text now reads: "Convert all Protestant home spaces that are currently under Protestant religious influence to Protestant political control. Spaces are not converted if they contain a Fortress marker."
Rule Book, Page 41, 22.4 Deactivation:
Amend the third bullet to read: "England, France, Hapsburgs or Papacy may play the card Diplomatic Marriage to deactivate Genoa, Scotland, or Venice."
Scenario Book, Page 2, Marker Setup, The New World:
Add the following sentences:
"In the 1532 scenario, 6 of the 9 markers are placed on the New World display. The other 3 (Circumnavigation, Pacific Strait, and Aztecs) are placed in the Hapsburg Bonus VP Box."
Scenario Book, Page 4, 1532 Scenario Setup:
The Papacy now begins in control of Sienna (SCM) and Florence (HCM). One Papal regular moved in the initial setup from Rome to Florence.
Their setup entry is thus:
Remove the setup entry of 1 independent regular in Florence.
Initial Papal VP start at 17.
Scenario Book, Page 6, Tournament Scenario, Add New Special Rule (#4):
The card "Dissolution of the Monasteries'"(# 63) is normally added to the deck at the start of Turn 5 or 6 if Henry VIII has married Anne Boleyn on the previous turn. For this scenario, set this card aside at this time. When dealing cards to the English player for the turn, please give this card to the English player instead of the first card they would have been dealt from the deck.
