yah, with three diffrent idealogies competing for contol, that would be cool, but i was going for a game that was a little less black and white
leaders of arab countires are more often allied with western powers than with Islam, Russia and China are not on the best terms either, and in this game i am going to make it possible for Russia and China to have full scale war with each other. Also its not like the US, UK, and France are able to agree on eyerthing either. I think it is best if they are seperate powers.
sure their will still be too sides, NATO, headed by the US, and the Warsaw Pact, headed by the Soveits. but the alliances are not set.
In fact at the start of the game all countries should still be at peace. each power can either buy NATO or WARSAW Pact vicotry points with 10 IPCs, of course doing that lowers the effectiveness of their armies the next turn, and so should only do this when they are not expecting attack
THe US and USSR are the only countries that start out active, If US/UK/France are attack all of those countries can become active, of course I am going to have diplomacy rolling that can weaken or change the NATO alliance
China, and India are different. You can gain control of them diplomaticly or you can attack them to makes them active. if you attack one, the other becomes contoled by your alliance
The diplomacy thing will be clearer later, I also might make diffrent national objectives for each contry so that when you have more than two players, diplomacy can be represented by people instead of dice rolls.
I’d add the rule that before using the piece, the owner must first loudly declare “I’m going commando!” to activate it.
Commando attacks get +1 bonus for each opposing player who does a “spit take” in reacting to the announcement.
In my play group it’s understood that someone is always going commando
it was nothing really. it was just a notification that you were able to sign up for pre-order the units…… u will receive a notification WHEN you are able to pre-order. but i guess we all will know that almost before we will get the message.
