Forum rules
In addition to the general Forum Guidelines (see here: http://www.playdiplomacy.com/forum/view ... 30&t=15441), there are additional rules for posting in this forum.
1. Members should not refer directly to a specific situation in an active game. It is usually possible to provide an example of a similar situation elsewhere on the board.
2. It follows that links, images, game name and/or number should not be added to a post if the game is active.
3. Questions should only request rules be clarified and not request advice about how to resolve a situation.
4. When answering a question, members should restrict themselves to answering the question and not give advice on how to get around the situation.
Posts which break these rules will be subject to editing or removal; see here: http://www.playdiplomacy.com/forum/view ... 13&t=42845

This is the situation: there´s one fleet in Portugal and one army in Spain. Can the fleet move to the south coast of Spain at the same time the army moves to Portugal?

Not 100% certain, but I believe that will result in a bounce. Two units can't switch places, even if coasts and such are involved. I remember one time my ally was goin to move Bul (ec)-Con, and Con-Bul (sc) or something like that...screwed up our plans big time when it didn't work. :)

Radishes is right. Specifically in the rulebook it uses this as an example incase the coast thing confused people
Diplomacy is to break someone's leg and then to say; "Lean on me."
