I’m curious to hear how other people here would handle this rules interpretation situation I’ve run into with the solitaire game “Sherman Leader”…
In several places the rules mention that if a German (AI-bot side) unit has more than one move option or targeting option that meet the criteria for the AI-bot rule, that “you choose” what the German unit does.
I’ve been playing a campaign and I’ve noticed that these sorts of “you choose” situations come up quite often. There is one movement rule in particular where you are supposed to move German units to “adjacent cover,” and there are often 2 or 3 options to pick from. Likewise, often I’ll have 2 or 3 units to pick from that a German unit can shoot at.
How you move and fire German units in those “you choose” situations impacts the difficulty of the game quite a bit.
My question is this: How would you interpret the “you choose” situations if you were playing the game? Outside of randomizing the action, there are two ways to go with it. One is that you interpret “you choose” to mean “you choose to your advantage.” Another way is “you choose what you think would be best for the German side.”
