IC in France Liberated by US - Upgrade?


  • Hi all -

    Global 1940 game.

    France falls to Germany. Germany is the only real threat, Japan is largely irrelevant with how this game is playing out.

    Later in the game, US liberates Normandy/Bordeaux.

    Paris/France proper is still held by Germany.

    Can the US upgrade the factory in Normandy to a major IC and keep control of it (until Paris is liberated, at which point it would become a French IC)? Thereby allowing the US to build 10 … or are they restricted to building 3?

    The answer is very likely going to lead to which side wins the game, a game that has transpired over several months and several glasses of Scotch accompanied by perfectly clear ice. Major trash talking is at stake between our side and the other side. Please only provide answers that support my opinion, because the other side (who also reads this forum) is filled with a bunch of cheaters and hooligans.


  • only build three.

    @Panther Is this guy joking in the last paragraph? Sorry for pinging you if the answer is obvious.

    Rulebook Europe 1940.2 page 27:
    “The industrial complex to be upgraded must be located on an originally controlled (not
    captured) territory that you have controlled since the beginning of your turn and that has an IPC value of 3 or higher.”

    Normandy Bordeaux - originally controlled by France - has an IPC value of only 2.
    So two reasons why US can’t do what you intend.

    I can’t figure out which side seems to know the respective rules however.
    So - sorry - just in case your opinion was against the rules. :wink:
