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

Yes, the 1900 rules can be a bit tricky :)

Take a closer look at the Suez Canal rules ( in the 1900 rules see https://www.playdiplomacy.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=566&t=33948). Your example is specifically quoted there. It all comes down to the fact that units moving 'around the horn' do so with half strength
