There is one design flaw with this game. It is a better map and better rules, yes! However, it is possible to capture all caoitols and still not win and keep playing. This situation was occurring in one of my games as I (axis) owned Russia and England capitols but kept losing other key cities and owned most of the board… This game should be played with ipc victory. It makes more sense with finality to it. The designers never considered this.
I suggest rule changes that would make it more final. First, if you capture 2 capitols, the game should be over. Or second, play with ipc victory. What do you think? I appreciate opinions on this dilemma.
