Playing the Android implementation as New York, the AI had placed one of its netters next to a mine & an empty hex, so when I draw a pusher, I placed him on the empty hex. However, the game engine won't let me select the netter to push onto the mine. Surely this is a legitimate tactic? Without this ability, mines become significantly less useful...

Thanks

Just to be clear: the mine (onto which you wanted to push the enemy) was not adjacent to the empty space (on which your pusher was standing), right?

The answer to your question taking nothing else into account is Yes.

However there are many other factors to consider which might prevent you from pushing the unit as you want so there might be somthing else preventing you from pushing it.

For example the pusher can only push a unit in a direction that is AWAY from it (ie one of the three spaces behind the unit). Another example is the pusher cannot push a unit that is being netted by the New York net fighter.

If the unit is netted, it cannot be pushed. Also, if the mine is adjacent to the unit doing the pushing, the opponent's unit cannot be pushed there. The push tile has to move the opponent's unit away from the pushing unit. As allstar said, you can push a unit onto a mine, but other factors would have been preventing it.

Well done everyone: the push wasn't actually moving the enemy tile away, just sliding it along the side. Thanks.
