Tactical Awareness Game Example

A Shàng Jí possessing Tactical Awareness, in addition to the Regular Order it adds to the Order Pool, will have an extra Irregular Order her player will place close to it on the game table during the Order Count step of her Player Turn.
If this Sháng Jí is part of a Fireteam, and its player designates it as the Team Leader, that Irregular Order could be used to activate the Fireteam as if it were a Regular Order.
