Consolidated Errata for Musket & Pike
As a result of
post publication playtesting, the following errata has been assembled to
clarify and correct various errors located in the original game components.
[2.1] GAME SCALE
Each hex in Musket & Pike represents approximately 50 (rather than 100)
meters from side to side.
Players should ignore the reference to Zone of Control Rules in the last
sentence of the General Rule paragraph. Musket & Pike makes no use of Zone
of Control rules in any facet of play.
[6.6] PARENTHESIZED COMBAT STRENGTHS
When a parenthesized unit is the top, defending unit in a stack involved in
Melee Combat the parenthesized Melee Combat Strength of each such unit in
the stack is employed for the defense of the stack. If, however,
parenthesized and non parenthesized units defend together in Melee Combat,
the parenthesized Melee Combat Strength may not be added to the Defensive
Strength of the stack.
[7.3] FIRE ATTACK PROHIBITIONS AND RESTRICTIONS
Units may always, fire into and through Occupied hexes which are on lower
terrain than the firing unit is situated on, i.e., units on hilltops may
fire through ground level and slope occupied hexes. Regardless of elevation,
units may never fire through two hexsides (or two hexside junctions) of
Woods, Village, or Hilltop Blocking Hexes.
[8.0] COMBAT RESULTS TABLE
The column of results for a die roll of zero may be ignored.
[9.0] TERRAIN EFFECTS CHART
The Terrain Effects Chart should be amended to note that if in Melee Combat
any Attacking unit is attacking downhill (hilltop to slope or slope to
ground level) the defending units do not have their Melee Combat Strength(s)
doubled. This holds true in a combination attack in which one unit is
attacking uphill and a second unit is attacking the same defending unit(s)
in a downhill manner. Note, also, that fire attacks from superior elevations
are defended against in the normal manner, i.e., using the normal Fire
Protection Strength of the hex the defending unit is located in.
[10.2] Should be Changing (not Charging) Stacking Position.
[11.0] CAVALRY CARACOLLA
Only Reiter Cavalry (not Dragoons) may use this Optional Rule.
[12.0] INFANTRY SQUARES
[12.2] MOVEMENT RESTRICTIONS
Units in Square must change their position within the hex when dictated by a
Square markers may be removed at no additional penalty in Movement Points at
the beginning of any Friendly Movement Phase. Units formerly in Square are
immediately free to move as they choose. Disrupted units may not form
Squares at the end of a Friendly Movement Phase during their disruption.
Dismounted cavalry may form Square.
[12.3] COMBAT EFFECTS
(F) Double the Fire Attack Strengths of all units fire attacking any units
[13.0] ROAD MOVEMENT ADVANCED
(A) Units (not in the Road Movement Mode themselves) must stop upon entering
any hex within the Road Movement Space of an Enemy unit. This is an
additional restriction to
those already described in the original Case (A) rule.
There are actually five distinct Optional Rules which may be employed in the
Musket & Pike game.
[16.0] THE SCENARIOS
Inadvertently the compass rose was printed upside down on the mapsheet.
Players should therefore change all references in all scenarios to the
opposite compass direction from the printed direction, i.e., read all
references to south as north, etc.
The Dutch 6HA use the Allowances and Strengths of the HA counter. The Fire
Protection Strength of the assumed North Sea hexes is computed as clear
terrain. Victory Conditions: Control all hexes in Town #6. [16.131 NIEUPORT
Second Player: Dutch units: 20PP, 3EP, 12MM, 12PM, 8RC, 2MA, 2HA, 4EA (treat
as HA with respect to Movement, Combat, and in compliance with the Special
Rules for this Scenario).
The Imperialists Deployment should read: (a) within three hexes of road
running from hex # 12 to hex # 15; (b) within four hexes of hex # 1.
Victory Condition: Covenanteers must control hex # 14 at the end of the
[16.50] WAR OF THE ENGLISH SUCCESSION
In this scenario the Jacobites should be the First Player. The Jacobites use
the Blue Counters and move first. The English should be the Second Player
and should use the Green Counters.
