Played my first game of this today. What a simple, yet fun game... I had a lot of fun, but I ran into one question while playing.
One unit was surrounded on 4 sides by the attacker. The attacker result was greater than 2-1, so the chart says the attacker can decide to have the defender take a hit or retreat. Can the attacker choose to have the defender retreat, thus eliminating him since he cannot? That's how we played it.
