2 move rule

Post by zitto2 » Sat Jun 22, 2013 5:58 pm

In the proposed tournament rules can you please clarify the normal 2 space move based on the following example: In turn one Germany invades Belgium, can France move troops from Paris in to Belgium (2 space move) or are they stymied at Picardy or Lorraine as there is only a 1 space move when entering contested or hostile territories?
We eventually agreed on the latter (rail couldn't take troops right to the front) but is this correct?
Either way we all thought that the tournament rules made for a more cut throat exciting game. After a 5 hr time limit at turn 8 Germany was at economic collapse, Russia was out, India was lost to the Ottomans, AH had just taken Italy and the game was agreed a draw.

It depends on whether Germany was successful in taking Belgium. Land units may only move one space when entering hostile or neutral territories, but they may moves two spaces when entering contested territories. So, if Germany managed to capture Belgium French units may not move there from Paris, but if it remains contested they may.

Why you decide not to use the Economic Victory rule to determine a winner, or did you just forget about it?
