In my first game I played Russia (playing 2nd ed)
I was at first dismayed to see that all targets seemed well defended.
Then I saw it…
I attacked Sinkiang on R1, and took it.
By UK1, the tournament organizer comes, over, glances at our table and shouts:
“What the hell does a Russian armor & control marker do in Sinkiang!
After I haphazardly explain, he again proclaims, over the entire convention hall, at the top of his lungs:
“All right everybody, listen up! The game is played as the Allies vs the Axis! This is not a free-for-all!”
God, that was an embarrassing moment, if there ever was one.
