YG's G40 Invitational - Rule Clarifications Thread
GRASSHOPPER’S G40 INVITATIONAL RULE CLARIFICATION THREAD
This is a thread dedicated to those attending and playing in Grasshopper’s G40 Invitational tournament in Toronto Canada this Fall. During game play on September 23rd, 24th, and 25th… there will be many requests for rule clarifications which should be asked here where rule deputies on duty can give fast, and accurate answers.
This thread will remain locked until the weekend of the event.
Stickied and unlocked - good luck and have fun!

Urgent answer needed…
The United Kingdom DOW on Japan attacked Japan ships UK 1, if Japan attacks UK units on Hong Kong on J2, will this bring the Americans into the War?
There is a debate due to the wording on Page 11 of the Pacific 1940 rule book in the declaring war description box, about the last 2 sentences.
You mean the UK declared war on Japan on UK1?
Then, No. America can only enter, if Japan DW on them now. Which, I am guessing, has not happened. If it so wishes, Japan can fight the UK and Anzac for two more turns, without fear of the US entering a state of war. Is a perfect scenario for Japan, I fear. And helps Germany/Italy on the other side of the map.
Just to add the quote of another important (apart from the box on page 11) rule here :
The United States may not declare war on any Axis power unless an Axis power either declares war
on it first or captures London or any territory in North America, or Japan makes an unprovoked declaration of war against the
UK or ANZAC, after which it may declare war on any or all Axis powers on its following turn.
When it came to Japan’s second turn, Japan alread has been at war due to the DOW of UK during UK1.
So the highlighted requirement does not match either.
Thank you guys, very helpful.
