Well the first game actualy had this as a example.
Although this is the 3th game in the series ( ignoring the non global games ) those rules have never changed afaik. The wording isnt at least so this would make them the longest stable rules in the game 😛
When germany captures russia while germany itself is in UK hands germany gets all of russia’s money but cannot spend it. This is the only way to have cash without having a capital.
I think that was about the wording in that manual but it has been a while so it might not be a exact quote.
Thanks, that was what I thought too. The thing that threw me for a loop was that I downloaded TripleA and it doesn’t look like they allow that sort of move, so I wanted to make sure I wasn’t playing it wrong all these years! 🙂
I still view the Allies with a slight adv b/c of the number of Round 1 attacks the Axis must do, particularly Egy.
As for bids, we didn’t use them in our tourney and the Allies are holding their own quite well. I think they are up a few games thru 23 games. It might be like 13-10 Allies right now.
In the League we do use bids, but that is also used to determine sides. A lot of times both players may bid 0 and just let sides be chosen at random.
I did just post a few stats in the League Forum (thru the first 12 completed) in the discussion thread and the Allies hold a 7 - 5 Adv in wins. Avg bid was 1.3, but 7 games were played with a 0 bid and 2 were played with a 1 bid.
