Russian - when are they part of the allies…...


  • …as it pertains to rolling into pro-allied neutrals in non-combat movement?

    They cannot declare war on Germany until turn 4. They can declare war on Japan in turn 1. Does that mean they can roll into pro-allied territories in round 2? Don’t think they can reach any in turn 1.

    Technically they might only be allies with China. That good enough?

    Have to be at war with Euro-Axis to move into non-russian territory on European half of map.

    Thanks for the reply. Seems rational. Is that why you say that or is there a written rule?

    It’s in the rulebook in the Global section.


  • You might as well issue an R1 DoW against Japan; at our gaming group we generally assume that Russia is at war unless stated otherwise.  So far I haven’t seen any reason in non-BM games to not opt for immediate war.

    @Pac:

    As a result, if the Soviet Union is at war with Axis powers on only one map, it is still under the restrictions of being
    a neutral power (see “Powers Not at War with One Another,” page 15) on the other map. In other words, a state of war with
    Japan lifts those restrictions from the Soviet Union on the Pacific map only, and a state of war with Germany and/or Italy lifts
    those restrictions on the Europe map only.

    This makes perfect sense with experienced players, but I do remember a game where I, playing Russia, managed to delay a Japanese attack for quite a few turns by claiming that we had always been on good terms and that I had never done anything at all to damage Japan’s interests.  😄
