In the game?

click on each of the ships you want to use and select convoy then click on the two places you want to move the unit from and to. then click the unit and tell it to move to the place you are convoying it to.

EG: to move from clyde to st petersburg
Norwegen sea convoy clyde->st petersburg
Barents sea convoy clyde->st petersburg
Clyde move st petersberg

Wow
Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.

Master Radishes: I think we'll see an Army in Moscow convoy a Fleet from Sevastopol to St Petersburg before we see that... ;)

There is another situation which would be a rule conflict to watch out for:

If a unit can be convoyed by more than one route, and both of those routes have convoy orders for that unit, the unit will not be able to be moved unless the unit specified by which route it was to be convoyed. (This came up in a F-t-F national tourament I attended eons ago.)

For example:

A Edi - Nwy
F Nth C A Edi - Nwy
F Nwg C A Edi - Nwy

:shock: Was ruled a failure for A Edi - Nwy when F Nth was dislodged and the convoy route was not specified by A Edi

Clagr :roll:

In the updated rules posted by Avalon Hill it says that the convoy would go through. They've tried to clarify those grey areas.

A national tournament, that must have been fun to play.
