Errata and Clarifications
As people ask questions and I feel they are important enough for general
dissemination, I will put the clarifications here.
Always shuffle your deck after looking through it, revealing cards, etc.

Timing for Unit & Asset Play
rules addendum: 06 November, 2001
Immediately after the "Who Plays First?" box on page 15 is a new box:
When a unit (including a stacked copy) or asset card is played, it does not
trigger an Event Ladder. The card enters play and any immediate effects as a
result are resolved. However, play then alternates to the opponent, who may
play an event or use a card effect. This is not in response to the unit/asset
entering play, but rather provides the opponent an opportunity to begin a new
Event Ladder before the first player plays an additional card.
Example: Karl plays a base unit. After this, before Karl can do anything else,
his opponent James has an opportunity to play an event card or to rotate one
of his cards to use its effect text. If James does so, this would start a new
Event Ladder under the standard event/effect timing rules. If he does not,
then play reverts to Karl. After Karl plays his next card, James will again
have an opportunity to play an event/effect.
Essentially, treat unit and asset play as events/effects for purposes of
alternating between players, with the exceptions that unit/asset play does not
begin an Event Ladder, and units and assets may only be played during your
Play Cards Round.
Command & Control
clarification: 19 October, 2001
If your C&C is reduced in the middle of a turn, you immediately choose
which unit(s) formerly within your C&C are now outside your C&C.
The ability to place 1 point of damage on each field unit targets the
player, so it will affect units with Immunity. The ability
to place 3 points of damage on a unit targets the unit, so it can
not be used against a unit with Immunity.

When a card leaves play, any effects it was generating also leave play.
This is similar to the rule under the "Rotating and Readying Cards" section of
the rules (page 14), but more global.
This card should read "For each field unit you control..." (emphasis

All 10 cards must be removed at the same time. You can not "bank" the
