|After completing the tutorial (iPad Pro), I played the Bismark Sea (easy) battle. I have a few basic questions:
- What do the green dots in the top of some hexes mean?
- I couldn't seem to send P-38s out against ships, even though I dropped them on the box and selected "bomb" instead of "escort". It looks on the counter like they do have an air-to-ship value in bomb mode. But is says they are not equipped to do damage to ships.
- Is there a PDF version of the rules available? I would really just like a quick reference for what the numbers on the various counter types mean, and also a hardcopy of the aircraft types with all their options, going back to the help screen all the time is a chore.
- Also a basic strategy question, is there any reason to move the ships away from the air bases in this battle? Are they just there to provide some targets/victory points for the Japanese side?
Thanks and enjoying the game so far.
