I got that map and it’s the greatest i’ve seen. Take out the set-up charts and start buying pieces and placing them each countries territorties they own. Each country needs to buy a factory before placin pieces on the board. Small factory produces 3 units and large factoried produce 10 units,. Using the white factories and the 10 factory tokens as the large.Using the 3 factory as the small. large factory produces 10 units, small produces 3 units. Right now I have 18 different countries participating in the 1939 global war. Each country has a starting IPC. Also iput in special weapons labs that need to be bought at 7IPCs. This cutdowns on how manycountries can develop secial weapons. I use the grey factories for this. Set-up conditions of the war are importment as the war itself. I did put together a starting ipc start for each country. The IPCs will change as the game goes on. This game starts in January of 1939 and war can’t b e declared until September 1939, Neutral countries can’t declare war, unless invaded. it does have to, bbut that’s the earliest by the axis
ORDER OF PLAY
Forget that, take a roundel from each participating countryand put them in hat or bag. My favorite bag is the purple Crown Royal bag. Pull one roundel out and that will be thats countries turn(this is one turn). When all roundels are removed from the bag that will be a round. Brings back Surpris attacks and remember the Marine motto"overcome, and it’s hard to plan 2 or 3 moves ahead.
adapt" I put in a rule about how long subs can stay submergrd(6 turns). Also how long air patrols can stay in the air 4 turns.
