Alpha 3.9 is written for Global so there are 18 Russian inf on the Pacific map. I cannot see how we can play Pacific and ignore them. If they are there then Japan is not so free to rampage through China before a DOW. Have not seen 3.9 state US cannot move as you say. I Read cannot end turn adjacent to Japanese controlled territories. Hope you are right. Have you a link? Thanks
AAP40 was there before global and it was a great game. I'm looking for the game where it is japan vs UK, ANZAC, China and USA. I don't see how Russia would even work without having a VC. Maybe you never played it before?
And you are correct about the US movement restriction. It's not that bad I guess.
