Other campaign/movement rules to mention
Alliances– Players can forge alliances and become a team benefiting from having an ally (able to move through their country without penalty) however there is a limit to 3 people max per alliance. Alliances must also be announced via forums.
Nation– Since we are portraying Africa/Europe, people can rename their force and use their own flag/symbol and their countries will more than likely just be numbered
Movement- You can only move your forces into an adjacent country and must move one country per turn (also moving through an ally does not count as a movement)
Army – You are classed as having forces in each territory you control, however you are only allowed to move one army per turn so in turn 2 if you control 3 territories and you wish to attack an adjacent territory that is your turn complete (apart from possibly defending attacked locations)
Attacking unclaimed territories – If you choose to move a force into any unclaimed territory then you count as automatically winning that and it becoming yours.
Draws – If someone attacks a country and the game ends as a draw the defender wins and the attacker backs off to where they came from. If it is a battle for a neutral land and its a draw both armies go back to original attack points with nobody claiming the land.
Inactive players – If a player is not actively playing his games or making an attempt to organise his games then after a while the round will be called to an end and he will lose any attacked terroities and automatically lose to a player her attacked etc who is actively trying to arrange the game. Inactive players may also be kicked out by organisers
Lists – To confirm your lists can be changed at the start of a new round. However you must submit it at the same time as your troop orders.
2 people attack same country – If more than two armies attack the same country then they all must fight in one battle consisting of all involved.
Limits to games! – No player can be attacked more than twice. First 2 orders received attacking a player by Colin will stand any others after that will be sent back for a different target. (the player attacked twice also still attacks where he wishes to)
Sea Assaults – If a player is wiped off the map they must continue on by attacking a coastal country next turn to fight back onto map. Same as with new players joining.

Game adjusted rules (house rules)
As discussed at AGM and at club we have made a few changes to gameplay and list making in attempt to make the game more even and fair (if you have issues with these please see colin or roger).
– LMG’s reduced to 10 pts.
– Transports can always fire a weapon even if no one is in it.
– Empty transports are not destroyed by being closer to the enemy, they are destroyed if an enemy unit moves into base to base.
– Flak units (not pintle weapons) fire before pins from the airstrike are added, still get the -2 to hit plus any other mods.
– Recce vehicles cannot recce move from an ambush shot.
– All weapon teams can pivot 90 degrees but incur a -1 to hit.
