    Global 1939

    This is an alternate setup for those of you who have 1940 2nd Edition.  It brings the start date to September 1939 only implementing a few special rules.  If you would like to play the Europe or Pacific side alone, go to

    Anything not specified here is the same as 1940.

    Political situation changes:

    Russia: may declare war turn 5 (instead of 4) if not attacked by the Axis

    Italy: begins the game neutral.  While neutral, Italy follows the normal restrictions of a nuetral power as well as some others… 1: Italy may not move into any territory without an Italian control marker. 2: No powers may move into Italian territories or transports. 3: Italy may only move through straights/canals if the controlling power will allow Italy.  Italy may declare on any Allied powers on turn 2 or later. The Allies (aside from the U.S. and Soviets) may declare war on Italy on turn 3 or later. Like Japan, Italy may load a transport which is in a hostile sea zone on the turn Italy declares war. If it is the Allies that declare war, they also may do this.

    United States: may declare war on the Axis on collect income phase of turn 4 (intead of 3)
    The minors on Western and Central U.S. don’t get upgraded automatically. The U.S. must pay for them if it wants them.

    Necessary special rules:

    Many territories will be made pro-Allies/Axis and have a standing army. I recommend using an upside-down (black) control marker for the new pro-Axis and a grey chip for the pro-Allies, or some other easy method to identify them.  For the new standing armies, I recommend simply using a stack of chips (since they are all infantry).

    When collecting NOs, treat the territories as the board represents them (e.g. the original controller). This means that although Iceland and Belgian Congo don’t start as British anymore, they are needed for UK’s NO. Likewise Russia always collects for the Communism NO in accordance with the original controller (printed on the board).

    The new pro-neutrals and their standing armies are:

    Pro-Allies:
    Poland: 6 infantry
    Eastern Poland: 2 infantry
    Denmark: 1 infantry
    Norway: 2 infantry
    Holland/Belgium: 3 infantry
    Iceland: nothing
    Greenland: nothing
    Belgian Congo: 1 infantry

    Pro-Axis:
    Slovakia/Hungary: 6 infantry
    Romanian: 6 infantry
    Bessarabia: nothing
    Baltic States: nothing
    Vyborg: 2 infantry
    Northwest Persia: nothing
    Persia: 2 infantry
    Eastern Persia: nothing

    Soviet Aggression:
    On turn 1 only, Russia is given the option of attacking any of these territories: Vyborg, Baltic States, Eastern Poland, and Bessarabia.  Germany may not take any of these as well as Finalnd on turn 1 without declaring war on Russia. If Russia does not take some/all of these, Germany may take them and Russia may not move into them later, unless it is at war with Germany. Remember that Russia won’t be an Allied power at this point. Therefore, keep in mind that Vyborg and Eastern Poland would both fight Russia, but Vyborg will join Germany (they are Finnish) and Eastern Poland will fight Germany.

    New Turn order and starting income/IPCs in hand:
    Germany: 14
    Soviet Union: 35
