Yes, I have been away for quite a while, my new job has played havoc with my opportunities to wargame, however some fans of my 1941 setup on Facebook asked me to create a 1939 setup so here we are.

The world stands on the brink of catastrophe. The rising tide of fascism approaches the breakwater of history, as the dictatorial regimes of Nazi Germany, Imperial Japan, and The Italian Empire seek to expand their rule across the entire planet. A decade of instigation, skirmishes, and attempts to placate these tyrants have failed. And so the world plunges into a new World War. The German Reich, wants "Living Space" to expand it's nation, which it plans to absorb from it's west and it's east. The Italians seek to restore the glory of the Roman Empire and dominate the entire Mediterranean basin. While the Japanese Empire desires to flush out the western colonial powers from Asia, and establish a Pan-Asian Co-Prosperity sphere, with themselves at it's apex. Their goals are lofty, and if successful these powers would establish a new world order. However, standing against them, weary from the last war, disorganized by purges and economic depressions stand the Allied Powers. The strength of The United Kingdom, its Commonwealth and French Republic may be waning, but they will not see the world fall into a new dark age without a fight. The Soviet Union, stands as their unlikely ally, since it too finds itself in the cross-hairs of the fascist wolves. Will it be able to withstand the coming storm? Though the new world, and the United States stands reluctant to spill blood and treasure in this most trying of times. Political willpower is hard to come by, and though the economy has begun to recover and some strength has been regained, the world holds it's breath in hope they will decide in time to rescue the world from a new dark age. The year is 1939, and the war to decide the fate of the world has begun.

2nd Edition Rules are in effect with a modified National Objectives package.
Politically the game begins as if it were two turns before a normal 1940 start.
Germany is at war with France, UK, and ANZAC
Japan is at war with China

Special Rules
  • Soviet naval units in the Pacific Theater must remain adjacent to original Soviet territory while the Soviet Union is neutral to Japan. (Or until Moscow has been captured)
  • The Japanese Kamikaze special rule is deactivated when using the 1939 setup.
  • Italy, while not at war may move naval units out of the Mediterranean. The may declare war at any time, however unless Paris has fallen their combat moves may not include attacks on any game space occupied by French or British units.
  • The Benelux Faction (Dutch & Belgians) are an independent faction aligned to no power. However, when and if any territory they posses is attacked by an Axis power, all Benelux territories become treated as Pro-Allied
  • Factories built on Chinese territory are no longer destroyed/removed if liberated by Allied forces.

This looks great! Are there any special rules for a Soviet-Finnish Winter War? Can USSR walk into Eastern Poland while neutral?

If the Soviets can attack Finland and win, its all theirs. So Germany might want to get there first.

Yes, the Soviets can attack pro-axis forces, or activate pro Allied territories before it is at war with the germans

Wow these rules look really fun. Can't wait to set the board up to start to see the nuances of the 1939 version. I bet I might have some questions after I do that.  First thing that comes to mind though is when and if the axis attack the Dutch.  I can see a scenario where the Germans wait to take Belgium to allow the Japanese to focus elsewhere before focusing on the money islands.

This looks great!  I will definitely give this a spin in the future.  We played your 1941 set up earlier this year via YouTube and we really enjoyed it.  Keep up the good work Oztea!

Ah, we discovered this in a playtest also. However, without control of Belgium/Holland on turn 1. German fighters and tactical bombers can't attack the Allied fleets in the Channel Area. So it let the allies move them around with no fear, and could send the UK fighters away that were there for scramble cover to do other things.
