I have been tossing around the idea of house rules for the neutral nations. Wanting to keep things simple I don’t want to change the value of units on the board, but think considering the pages upon pages of rewrites of A&A Global, they could have 1 page giving the rules for the neutral nations. These are based on the Alpha2 ruleset but can be easily adjusted to the new set.
Some nations act in neutral blocks, when one nation is attacked all the others join the opposing side as pro-whatever.
Venezula, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia uraguay, Chile and Argentina fill out these nations. The act in concert and if one is attacked it is akin to a declaration of war on the lot.
Portugal and Spain had vast colonial empires, an attack on one brings in the forces of all their colonies. This represents an Iberian Alliance and includes the territories of Portugal, Spain, Rio D’oro, portuguese Guinea, Sierra Leone, Angola, and Mozambique.
Middle East Powers
Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Afghanistan are included in this set. An attack on one is an attack on all.
Liberia is Pro Allied in our games, it was an American client state after all. We also have been using Mongolia as the penalty for agression in Siberia, so it is seperated from the other countries. I however intend to change it to something a bit more historically accurate which is to have them join Russia if Russia is attacked and to figure out some penalty for Russia if they choose to attack Japan. Another quirky addition is that Greece and Crete are one nation, if UK takes Crete on UK1 they unlock Greece. Also if the Axis invade Greece but don’t take Crete, than it gets a UK marker and is British.
That just leaves the random European nations of Sweden and Switzerland. I need ideas for these two. I had been thinking that for Switzerland, if it is attacked than every true neutral declares for the other side, but that wouldn’t work for Sweden.
Also if this has been discussed in the past could someone post me a link or give directions (page number) so I can see other’s ideas? Thanks!
