• Ok I’ve been playin for years now… But I’ve never played with a “bid”. Could someone explain to me what it is/how it works?


  • in order to determine sides, the players will bid for the lowest amount in IPCs they are willing to take the weaker side for. whoever bids the lowest amount (for allies, in the case of AA50) gets to place units up to the value of their bid and before the game begins.

    a typical amount for AA50-41 is 5-8 IPCs, most often given to the Brits and placed in Egypt. on Triplea, there is a convention that limits the bid to no more than one unit per territory.
