The important thing to understand about mechanized infantry movement is that they move in exactly the same way that tanks do, except that they can’t blitz without a tank. In most cases, the confusion on this issue comes from the definition of the term “blitz”.
Many people define “blitz” as any two-space movement by a tank, but that’s incorrect. A blitz movement is a combat movement through an unoccupied, enemy-controlled territory and into another territory. Only the first territory is “blitzed”. The second one is not, regardless of its status.
So, mechanized infantry may only make a combat movement through an unoccupied, enemy-controlled territory and into another territory when paired with a tank. Any other two-space movement that a tank can legally make can also be made by a mechanized infantry without an accompanying tank. This means that mechanized infantry may always move two friendly spaces alone in noncombat movement, and they may also move two spaces alone in combat movement if the first territory is friendly.
My turn order
UK P, Anzac and the Dutch are actually FEC with combined income and yes there is a token Dutch force in the DEI
Turkey played by either UK or Italy
Spain played by either Germany or US
Vichy rule in effect
France before Germany make the Allies even more stronger as France can defend against both countries and the only good Axis plan that I can see is make Italy launch a suicide invasion against France to bring their units down and hope the French don’t buy straight up infantry and hope Germany is able to beat them.
The colored major and minors are people’s own creations. And I find either 2, 4, or 6 players is best (6 is a stretch b/c of you could get knocked out). And, for example, if i play a 4 player game i divide the powers
Germany and Italy
US and Russia
UK, Anzac, France, China
If you’re new i would either recommend the allies for a two player, probable UkAnzacFranceChina for 4 player and either italy, USchina, or UKFrance for a 6 player. Whatever you do, don’t play as Japan (and probable not Germany either). I’ve played my fair share of new players and Japan is disastrous. At least with Germany they know to go in the general direction of moscow. But with Japan i’ve seen people ignore the DEI. Game over.
The “Global” rules are in the back of the Europe rule book if that was the question.
My scanner may still work. If I scan the last few pages and upload them to flickr think I would get sued?
Thanks for the info. No, please don’t do anything that would get you sued! I can wait… Thanks all for the info though, I’m like a kid in a candy shop waiting for these to arrive.
