Re: [eia] Anglo-Turkish naval phase, 10/05 (part II)

    I think what JJ is saying is that the incoming fleets have to be
somewhere when they are intercepted.  They cannot be in the surrounding sea
zone because of some rule (I don't remember which one) which says that
fleets in a blockade box cannot intercept fleets in surrounding sea zones.
If the intercepted fleets cannot be in the surrounding sea zone when they
are intercepted, then they must be in the blockade box when they are
intercepted.  If they are in the blockade box when interception occurs, then
the battle that takes place will include all allied fleets together (by some
other rule whose number I don't have handy).

Does that help?
