Use the second edition rules and setup. You can download them here:
Here’s the history in case you care. What happened was they released the first editions of 1940 Europe and Pacific a few years ago but then people immediately figured out that if you put those 2 together to make the global game it was hopelessly screwed up. So for the next 2+ years all the experts played and played and talked and talked and talked and the company every so often put out new versions of the rules and setup that were called alpha 1, alpha 2, and so on until FINALLY they released the second edition, which is just about perfect.
"Thanx for the input, much easier to understand now 🙂 So I’ll use 2ed rules, but some of the player aides & charts for +3 & +3.9 look like an easier read & are cool. So I’ll compare them to the 2ed rules & set-ups & should be able to use those ok. Thanx again.
