Victory Condition: CONTINUOUSLY for one complete round of play



  • Hi,

    Can someone explain what they mean by continuously for one round of play.

    Does one complete round mean from starting with Germany and ending with France?

    Suppose Germany takes the 8th victory city, and in between England takes a victory city back making Axis having only 7, and Italy takes the 8th city back. Does Axis win by the end of this round?

    Please explain,

    Jack

    A complete round of play starts with the power that took the last victory city and goes through til his turn comes up again. So in the scenario you posted the axis wouldn’t win until Italy’s next turn (as long as they didn’t lose a VC again).



  • So the Allies would have to hold all 3 Axis capitals from the time the last capital was captured and then all the way back to that nation’s turn  :roll:

    In all the Allied victories in all the world, I highly doubt any of them ended this way.

    Obviously not. At the end of the UK turn, there are only 7 VCs owned by the Axis.

    I think you should look up continuously in the dictionary!

    I think what simon meant to say is welcome to AA.org Jack.

    I have seen this same question asked many times over the years.

    Right, that’s what I meant.



  • Basicaly what is sais is that,
    Once the victory condition is met ( 8 VC europe or 6 VC pacific ) that condition needs to be met for 1 full round.
    If at any point of the game it is not met then the timer restarts and it is again 1 full round from the moment it is met again.

    If italy would capture the 8th city, germany captures another 1 and then the UK takes 1 back you still have 8 so the counter keeps ticking.
    If germany captures the 8th city, UK takes 1 back well you are on 7 now 7<8 so condition net met and counter resets.
