Query on the 18 SCs to win

Postby silverwood02 » 20 Feb 2017, 20:28

HI
A quick question - to win with 18 SCs, do you have to have to hold them until the Fall or is it enough just to take them?

Thanks.

You have to capture them, which means holding them through the end of the fall retreats.

SCs occupied in spring are not captured.

Yes, "taking them" and "holding them through the Fall" are the same thing. To get to 18 centres, you have to take them, which means holding them through the Fall.
