Shooting at generals

Am I blind, or has the +1 for general's getting shot at disappeared?

You are correct. With the new shooting rules, we felt that the tactical factor for the general was no longer applicable. And we've been keen to remove things where we could in an attempt to keep the game as simple as possible.

I should have included that on the list of changes, but I overlooked it while I was putting the list together.

Thanks. It came as a nasty surprise that we couldn't find the modifier when we played yesterday and Daniel's general found himself in the path of a cannonball (altho the way the dice fell he was destroyed regardless of whether he got the +1 or not).

Yup, DK's advice with the new rules was brilliant: "don't get your general shot" :D
