Rule Notes

Each commander has a poker chip which is drawn from a bag to determine the move sequence of corps.

Prussian cavalry only have sufficient command points to turn around and form line in preparation for crossing the bridge. This means that they will remain within range of the enemy artillery for another move unless their turn is drawn first.
