look at the next 1D6 cards in the Enemy Deck. You may then place them back
as you found them, or shuffle the enemy deck.
You may discard an Artillery card from your hand to give all enemy cards this
turn -2, down to a Minimum of 1.
Turn over the top X+1 cards of the Enemy deck.
You may discard 1 Cavalry Unit to capture 2 or more target Enemy cards if their
