That might make sense. Either that, or have contesting the capital as a precondition to checking for them. However, in all three cases, the situation was caused by sneaky moves of troops to places just big enough to cause them to be contested, which is why I suggested giving the country the entirety of its turn to try to correct the situation (like in WWII games of A&A when a capital is captured). As it was, we sent armies on suicide missions right before the turn of the country in question just to trigger the collapse, even though the moves would otherwise NEVER have been made (like sacrificing a considerable army just to have 1-2 units survive, thereby contesting a territory).
Is there a pdf rulebook or preview out there somewhere yet. Looks like some of you are talking about specific rules in the game so I’m supposing there is.
Is it possible to post me a link here to save me alot of searching?
Not yet, unfortunately. A&A.org have received an advance copy of the game but I doubt the rulebook will ever be posted here in its entirety.
You might want to check the WotC official A&A homepage in about a year’s time though.
I’ll post the PDF rulebook on Sunday or Monday. Probably Sunday. Yeah, Sunday is good because folks might have the game by Monday.
Or, like, this morning.
