Concerning the time-scale of one turn this post may be interesting:
The rulebook states that for Chinese infantry placement, “units cannot be placed on any territory that already contains three or more units”. Should this be interpreted as 3 Chinese units, or any 3 allied units? Thx!
I would and do interpret it as Chinese units they have enough trouble surviving as it is.
FAQ addressed this, the units to be considered are only the chinese units (including the china starting fighter that is chinese for gaming purposes).
So if a territory contains less than three chinese units, at time of placement, is eligible for deploying chinese infantries.
