Currently going through our first run through using 1939 scenario.
The UK foolishly declared war on Japan and attacked them in Jan 1940. Naturally Japan made combat moves against them on its turn in July 1940.
On the USA chart it states a 5D12 income rise when JAPAN declares war on UK. As this wasn’t the case, does the USA now sit back with the possibility of not being able to reach wartime income?? If not then surely it should read “Japan and the UK are at war” for a bonus 5D12?
Thank you in advance community.
Yeah that bonus for the US only applies if Japan starts the war. If the British attacked/or verbally declared war first then the US are stuck sitting on their hands. US still roll each turn for increased income but not the bomus 5 D12. Japan’s favorite scenario! Hopefully for the US, Japan gets greedy and attacks the Dutch for a bonus income roll. Or takes a US island in the Pacific Ocean so they can get in earlier.
This game is all about this kinda stuff. If the German player attacks too early it can screw Japan the same way by boosting all of the Commonwealth’s economies to full too early in the Pacific side. Especially when you play the 1936 version.
