1914 - Looking for simple changes to improve the game for future 2nd version.

  • Okay here are the rules:  keep changes simple and in-line with original version

    1. Map changes okay.
    2. Set up changes okay.
    3. New units NOT okay.
    4. Movement and combat procedures to remain “as-is”.  (But would like to see changes to mines).

    Looking forward to your suggestions.

    Here are my 3 sets of changes…
    1)  Map changes:
    Add Sea Zone 31 - split of current sea zone 17 into 2 zones.  SZ31 adjacent to Africa, Greece, SZ16, SZ19, and SZ20.  
    SZ17 adjacent to Italy, Albania, SZ16, and SZ18.
    Make Switzerland impassable.
    2)  Setup changes:
    Move any 1 GE SS from existing SZ to new SZ31; Add 1 GE CA to SZ26;
    Remove UK TR from SZ2; Add 1 UK SS to SZ8;
    Remove 1 OE CA from SZ20; Add 1 OE TR to SZ20;
    Remove 1 RU CA from SZ21; Add 1 RU SS to SZ21.
    3)  Play changes:
    Neutral Albania: Albania starts game as a neutral.  At start of turn 3, it becomes minor-aligned with Italy or France (AP choice).
    Neutral Portugal: Portugal is neutral, unless CP attacks Portugal, Angola or PEA.  If that occurs, Portugal becomes minor-aligned FR or UK (AP choice).  If ANG or PEA are occupied by AP, no effect on Portugal’s neutrality.

    My suggestion would be to change the name of the thread from “1914 - Looking for simple changes to improve the game for future 2nd version.” to “1914 - Looking for simple changes to improve the game”.

    Nothing wrong with making suggestions to improve the game… however, I’d be willing to make a very sizeable wager that this game will never see a 2nd Edition… reprint, maybe… 2nd Ed, never.

    There are some Larry Harris tounament rules you may want to look at first. I thought they were worthy changes when playing them for thd first time recently.

  • I agree on 2nd version - very doubtful.  As to the tourney rules, I have found the 2 movement factor rule to greatly change how the game is played - not a fan.
