Forum rules
In addition to the general Forum Guidelines (see here: ... 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: ... 13&t=42845

It must be able to travel to that land, (so it must be adjacent and also capable of going on the space, ie fleet cant go to inland spaces and armies cant go to sea spaces)

so yes, it can retreat to any space beside it, except under these circumstances:

1) the attacking unit came from the territory in question
2) the targeted retreat territory had conflict in it last move. As in two or more countries tried to take the land but bounced.

I once retreated in the fall to a spot that gained me an sc. Which was totally legal. So you dont need to own the land or anything.

Is this helpful?
Diplomacy is to break someone's leg and then to say; "Lean on me."
