What I Thought I Understood,
[-] Cramped Position


(GW) What I thought I understood about ...

Cramped Position

  • If you have fewer safe squares to move your Pieces, than your opponent's army, you're at a disadvantage, suffering more from Cramp (as it's known). Deduct a point from your overall Point Count tally.

Ken's Comments ...

This is the opposite of the "Greater Space" point above. As H&M-S say, there is only one point. Decide if you are going to add it to one side, or deduct it from the other. Again, this is what COA terms "Territorial Domination".
