Russia 5 IPC Bonus because Japan attacks
I’ve been looking for the answer on this one, but in the original Global 1940 rules, it reads that Russia receives her 5 IPC bonus if she’s at war - but it doesn’t say with whom. To me that means if Japan attacks Russia, but Germany does not, then Russia still gets her 5 IPC bonus. Is that a typo? Remember this is the original rule set - not Alpha 3.
The USSR must be at war with a European Axis power to get this bonus.
Thanks. So this was an error in the first edition like Japan not getting its strategic bonus if Italy captured India.
Now that’s an interesting deterent…
+5 for Russia EACH TURN, if Japan attacks Russia…
and + 5 for Japan EACH TURN, if Russia attacks Japan, Â
- The current Mongolia considerations/rules.
That would certainly make things work to prevent war.
Yeah, it would be. This is the last time we’re playing the old set. We start playing the 2nd Global next. I’m looking forward to a much weaker US and a much stronger Germany.
