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

Rule question

Postby Donkeyboy » 09 May 2008, 10:12

Country A has units in Par and Gas
Country B has a unit in Bur
Country C has units in Ruh and Mun.

What happens if:
A Gas - Bur
A Par S Gas - Bur
A Bur - holds
A Ruh - Bur
A Mun S Ruh - Bur

The army in the centerprovince seems to be dislodged by either of the two attacking armies. But the two attacking armies are of equal strength.
Is the army in Burgundy dislodged but the province remains unoccupied? Or does the army in Burgundy stay where he is because no real winner of the province can be assigned?

Thanks in advance :)

The army stays there. Because there is a standoff, and no one has entered the Bur, there is no dislodgement.

All units stay where they are.
