Alpha Plus.1 - NO when the Soviet Union becomes at War with Japan & vice versa



  • I’m confused on the verbiage used in Alpha Plus.1 on the two NO for the Soviets & the Japanese involving the treaty between them.

    Both states “Collect 12 IPCs, once, and at the beginning of the turn following a declaration of war by Japan on the Soviet Union or (the Soviet Union on Japan).”

    Should it read; “Collect 12 IPCs, at once, and at the beginning of the turn following a declaration of war by Japan on the Soviet Union or (the Soviet Union on Japan).”

    Implying that the 12 IPCs are awarded twice, immediately & at the next turn.

    Or….

    Should it read; “Collect 12 IPCs, once, at the beginning of the turn following a declaration of war by Japan on the Soviet Union or (the Soviet Union on Japan).” Omitting the word and.

    Implying the 12 IPCs are awarded only once.


  • Official Q&A

    The second one.



  • This applies to the WHOLE game, not just prior to turn 4 correct?  This could happen on Turn 7 or 8 so to speak.

    There is no time limit.

    Krieg, you said the second one… Is that after or before the “Or…” because I was a little confused by this as well. The way it reads makes it seem like whoever gets attacked will be paid twice, getting 24IPCs


  • Official Q&A

    After the “or”.

    After the “or”.

    Gracias. Might want to re-word that on the original post so there isn’t anymore confusion.
