How to SPEED UP Round 1 and some subsequent rounds
At the VERY beginning of game directly after Setup. - Assuming 6 players (Can be done similarily with as few as 4 players)
1) A: Make Sure UK India and UK Europe are a different player. Have the U.S. Player control Anzac. Divy China and France between Russia and a UK player. (15 seconds)
** B:** Make it clear that although some moves are Simultaneous for the purpose of battle technical turn order prevails (with UK exception) - IE you cant attack the same zone at the same time together. (15 seconds)
2) Let Russia move its Eastern most forces (18inf) into whatever offensive or defensive postion they want. (1 min+)
**3)**Then Let Germany and Japan play their 1st Turns Simultaneously. (Depends 15 Min Maybe)
4) Russia, United Kingdom Europe and India, Anzac, All play simultaneously (Thats four allied players planning and doing their moves AT THE SAME TIME (Depends 15 min maybe)
5) Italy goes.
6) USA, China, France again Simultaneous.
What this does - Is allow in the first round - Arguably the Longest Round, To have the maximum amount of players playing at the same time, instead of waiting on each other.
This process is obviously continued for UK and ANZAC turns, as well as USA FRA CHINA Turns. Possibly as well, the moving of the russian Far East against Japan could continue to allow Japan and Germany to play Simultaneous if you have a good play group who understands the rules at that time is of the essence.
The objevtive here is to get as many players possible to do their turns that do not affect each other, at the same time.
Sometimes it will obviously make more sense to delay a countries turn depending on Battle outcomes etc, but for the FIRST round it shouldnèt matter and this should be helpful.
GERMANY and ITALY
UK EUROPE and FRANCE
RUSSIA and CHINA
USA and ANZAC
UK INDIA mixed with Europe or Given France or China and Seperate.
You can also have Italy and China go simultaneously in the first round and any subsequent round that America is not going to be involved in china.

Well, the movement of the 18 inf may depend on Germany’s move
