Question about US isolationism

Post by SgtSchultz » Tue Jan 09, 2018 1:42 pm

Just got the game over Christmas and am loving it so far, but just need a little clarification about the US's early turns. I realize they are neutral and can't attack until turn 4, but does this mean they can spend money and stockpile units for three turns (unless Germany attacks of course)? Thats 60 IPC's total to spend without much threat of losing units. Or is the US turn "skipped" until round 4?

It just seems a little odd for a "neutral" power to be building up for war.

Welcome, SgtSchultz!

The US does indeed collect and spend income before it's at war. Think of it as representing the massive mobilization the US performed in 1917, but spread out over multiple turns.

Thank you Krieghund for the clarification!

One other question I hope you will have an answer for: Say the German navy moves into a British seazone and survives the mine rolls on that turn. On the following German turn, if their boats stay in that seazone, do they need to roll for mines again even though they haven't moved at all?

No. Mines are only rolled for when a sea unit enters a mined sea zone.
