Here’s the new bonus for Japan:
When Japan is NOT at War
1.Collect 10 IPCs each turn that Japan is not at war with the United States and has not invaded French Indo-China or made an unprovoked declaration of war against United Kingdom/ANZAC.
When Japan becomes at War with the Soviet Union.
2. Collect 12 IPCs, once, and at the beginning of the turn following a declaration of war by the Soviet Union on Japan.
and for Russia:
When the Soviet Union becomes at War with Japan
4. Collect 12 IPCs, once, and at the beginning of the turn following a declaration of war by Japan on the Soviet Union.
So if Japan attacks Russia first, Russia gets the 12 IPC bonus. But does Russia have to declare war back on Japan before they can attack back giving Japan their 12 IPC bonus too? Or is it once one power declares war, they are both automatically at war without the other power having to declare war back? (Basically is the +12 bonus given to only one power or both?)
