Other groups of three are not yet in play.
We are using the rules as published with the exception of the following:
- Once a nation has been invaded it may drop its declaration of war vs a
third nation in order to attack the coutry that has invaded it.
- Once having made this change it is committed to attacking only that country
that invaded it and MAY NOT send an allied contingent for any reason in the
current year. This simulates the redirection of the army to the need at hand.
- No sieges except for the Capital of each country. If you don't fight you lose
the region invaded.
- Movement sequence is determined by drawing chits each Spring,all players
drawing and revealing their # and place. Diplomacy is conducted and then
Declarations of war are made secretly by all players, then revealed at the
same time so that multiple battles may be fought simultaneously.
