Japan NO when at war with West Allies?



  • Which allies does Japan need to be at war to meet the following condition?  The way it’s written with the ‘/’ character and the “and/or” isn’t precise.

    @rulebook:

    When Japan Is at War with the Western Allies (United States, United Kingdom/ANZAC and/or France)

    @rulebook:

    Any or all.

    UK/ANZAC are linked powers, tied diplomatically to have the same war/peace status.  If you’re at war with ANZAC you MUST be at war with the UK and if you’re at war with the UK you MUST be at war with ANZAC.  So it reads:

    USA and/or UK-ANZAC and/or France.



  • Thanks kcdzim, but why didn’t they write it in this simpler way:
    When Japan Is at War with any number of Western Allies (United States, United Kingdom, ANZAC, France)

    The way the original text reads it seems like they need to be at war with ALL of the Allies.



  • it says “and/or” and it is the most common way to phrase such a requirements in games.

    for basic gramar;
    a, b and c = a and b and c;
    a,b or c = a or b or c;
    a and/or b = means if you have a and b, its ok, if you have a, its ok, if you have b, its ok.
    same way you can make a list.
