No one gets snuffed. Double Deck (2 of every tech). Let’s say the order is Germany, USSR, Japan, US, UK, Italy, Anzac.
Germany would select 6 techs.
USSR would then select 6 techs.
If Germany and USSR selected the SAME techs, No other country would be allowed to have them as they are gone.
Japan would select 6 other techs.
And so on…
You still must buy a tech roll to try and get one. This just avoids the USSR getting Super Subs for some odd reason.
You choose what you want. We’ve used this for our Anniversary Edition Double Blind game with great enjoyment.
Just makes the game a little less stale. That is all.
