Victory Objectives & Tokens: New Victory Condition Rule

Once a victory objective has been achieved, a victory token will be awarded, the side with the most victory tokens at the end of the day wins the game. Victory tokens are awarded immediately upon completion regardless of when, or how the objective was achieved. Victory tokens may never be awarded twice for the same objective, and they may never be taken away once earned. It never matters which round a game ends, however, a win or a tie can only be declared at the end of a full game round.

Here is a list of all victory objectives for each side...

Fortunes of War: New Research & Development Rule

Research rolls are no longer used to develop breakthroughs, instead, a system called "Fortunes of War" will be used where nations get free development rolls when victory objectives have been achieved. Once a victory token is gained, the nation with the corresponding (*) instructions listed with each objective will choose a breakthrough chart, and make a free "Fortunes of War" roll with the resulting breakthrough taking effect after the collect income phase of the turn in which the token was achieved. Any breakthroughs gained by the UK regardless of which side of the map a token was achieved will effect all UK purchases and all UK units on the board.

Breakthrough Chart #1

1. Heavy Artillery
All artillery now support up to 2 attacking infantry and/or mech infantry each

2. Rockets
Each operational airbase may launch a rocket at an enemy facility up to 4 spaces away, roll 2 dice per rocket and apply the highest result for damage.

3. Jet Fighters
All fighters now attack at 4 or less, and defend at 2 or less when escorting or intercepting.

4. Long-Range Aircraft
Maximum movement range for all air units is now increased by 1.

5. War Bonds
During the collect income phase, roll 2 dice and collect IPCs in the amount shown on the highest roll. (For UK war bonds, Calcutta will gain IPCs from the lowest roll, London will gain IPCs from the highest roll).

6. Blitz Tactics
Mech infantry now attack at 2 or less if paired with a tank as well as artillery, they may blitz without tanks, and they may tow 1 artillery unit each during the non-combat movement phase.

All submarines now attack at 3 or less.

2. Anti-Aircraft Radar
