alright, thank's, i was'nt sure because i was playing a game recently and had paratroops, starting and in reinforcements.
it was a three objective game, i claimed and held 1 objective and conquered and held the second, my opponent started shoving units forward and left the objective he held guarded with only one unit, i had already deployed my reinforcements, including paratroop reinforcements, i deployed them straight away, because i was'nt sure of the rule.
anyway i dropped down my one remaining paratrooper, which i held from the start of the game, beside a forest about 2 hexes from the final objective, i managed to hold out on the other 2 objectives, and scramble to the last before my opponent could regroup.
i think the paratroops add a great element to the game, always keeping players guessing and moving until they are deployed.
HAHAHAHA so true
