cube and/or add own cube.

2. 7 action rounds, Com first.
• Play card as Event or for Ops (if opponent’s event, it occurs,
but you decide when).
a) Event: * = remove from game if event occurs, underlined =

b) Ops – place support: Place 1pt at a time, with or adjacent to
existing support at start of action. If opponent controlled,
costs double Ops.
c) Ops – support check: Do 2 checks. Target must have

controlled – adjacent opponent controlled > 2 x stability.
Remove opponent support by difference, add own if not
enough to remove.
d) Ops – Attempt Tiananmen advance. Event not triggered.
Success = Ops value + die roll +1 if own event +1 if 2nd or
more attempt for the same square >= requirement. Enjoy
award if more advanced than opponent, until he catches up.
3. Extra support check. (due to Tiananmen)
4. Celebrate New Year Eve. (game will end)

loss. Modifiers +2 if won by Rally, -2 if won by Petition. Refer
results tables for effect.
• If Dem win and VP die roll 4+ (after modifier), Com loses
power, remove scoring card permanently. Com may voluntarily
surrender power.
• Com scores for Power. VP = country Power value x times
scoring card played.
5. Scoring.
• Presence = has control. Domination = control more spaces &
control more battleground spaces & control at least 1 nonbattleground space. Control = control more spaces & control
all battleground spaces. Score according to table.

Final Scoring).
• Instant win if opponent error in holding scoring card.

7 Ages (Note: This is a very brief overview and is only sufficient to get you
started. Many details have been omitted. See full rules.)
Start:
• 7 cards.
• Simultaneously spend card to determine first player. Highest card goes
first, if tied, tied players spend again.
• In card value order select permanent empires (pair of light & dark).
Round:
• Secretly play 1 action marker on each empire in play. May play 1 extra if
not yet reached max empires. Max empires is 5/4/3 for 3/4/5+ players.
• Wild card action: Reveal during desired action. Empire doesn’t freeprogress, lose 1 Glory if perform same action twice.
• Actions: (resolved in this order, may forfeit own action by not revealing)
a) Start empire. Play card from hand. Choose own permanent colour if
possible. Follow restrictions on card. Progress marker offset based
on most advanced empire. Buy armies / fortification. Get leader &
capital.
b) Production. Income from undisordered areas and cities. Non-fertile
wheat only Ages 5-7, oil only Age 7. Half income if no capital. Pay
$1 per unit unless barbarian (i.e. no city). Disband unmaintained
units and lose area if no unit remaining, or area becomes disordered
if other units remain. Pay to build max 1 unit per area, more if city
present. Naval units can be built on coastal land or sea, not ocean.
$5 for fortification, not allowed for barbarians.
c) Trade & progress. Trade with another player’s empire within range,
priority not yet traded; else trade with deck. If both empires chose
Trade, both actions considered done after 1 trade. In range means
steps to partner <= your empire age. Cannot count through ocean
unless Age 4. Cannot count through others’ territory unless
permitted or paid for.
• Simultaneously pick card to give, adding empire trade power.
• Win: progress 1, +1 if chose Trade action, +1 if partner more
advanced. Tied: lower empire choosing Trade action +1.
• May give money to partner.
d) Manoeuvre. Move units. Explorers give +1 move. Note terrain
movement cost, except to ships & planes. Leaders must be with
units. Ships can move/stop on coastal land. Ship may carry 1 land or
air unit, but must start and end move together. If meet enemy units,
each enemy pins 2 units. Land or sea units don’t pin aircraft. Must
not vacate land areas of non-aircraft units. Aircraft-only area can be
vacated.
• Remove disorder if have enough units: 1 + terrain defense + city
value (0 if non-archer missile unit)
•
•
•
• Battles: Draw card & secretly commit unit(s). Strength = card +
frontline value of half the units + support value of the rest + elite
marker (max 3) + age advantage + best frontline and support
value per opponent army disorder + [defender: terrain +
fortification (2) + city (0 if attacker has non-archer missile)].
Elephant cancels frontline value of chariot, light horse & horse
archer, but if lost, must retreat. Round loser loses all committed
units, if tied both lose. Repeat battle round with uncommitted
units. If none and need to use tired troops, +1 disorder. May
retreat if opponent has disorder. Battle loser loses 1 elite, if
defender remove artifacts & fortification, reduce city; if lose capital

USSR, USA, China without impacting other relations.
• USSR: May declare war on European Axis round 4 or London falls. May
declare war on Japan any time. Peace status and restrictions on the two
maps are independent.
• Japan: At war with China. Any country entering China is declaring war
on Japan. May declare war on France or USSR without impacting other
relations. If not at war with USA, may not leave ships within 2 steps of

Axis & Allies 1914
Concepts:
• Every land army must have inf.
• Sea zones are either friendly or hostile. Friendly if no enemy
surface warship (i.e. ignore sub & transport).
Political Situation
• Austria-Hungary must attack Serbia in 1st round.
• All minor powers unmobilised. Mobilisation happens for minor
power capital only, when first entered by major power. Gain
units 2 x IPC value, 1 art & others inf. If neutral minor power
invaded, opposite side decides which power’s units to use.
• US enters war if attacked, robbed by German sub, or 4th
round. While neutral, units may not meet Central units.
• Bolshevik Revolution: Round 4 and onwards, if 3+ territories
next to Moscow controlled by Central, 1+ other original
Russian territory controlled by Central or contested, Moscow
controlled by Russia or contested, then Russia out of game,
remove all units except those in contest. Thereafter Central
must maintain at least 1 inf in contested territories.
Order of Play: AH – Rus – Ger – Fra – Brit – Otto – Ita – US.
Turn: Buy & fix units – Move – Combat – Mobilise – Income.
Move:
• Land units move 1 step. Fighters and sea units 2 steps,
except cruisers 3.
• When land territory is contested (has units from both sides),
no one owns it and no income. Units in contested territories
may only move to own controlled territories or other contested
territories with own units.
• OK to vacate own controlled territory.
• Naval base = mine if territory under original controller or
contested. Roll die (1) for every ship.
Combat:
• Optional for already contested territories and any sea zones.
• Determine air supremacy first to determine art promotion.
Fight until one side no fighters. Fighters join combat at
strength 2.
• Normal land combat lasts 1 round.
• Attacking inf and tank can be promoted by paired art.
• Sea combat can go multiple rounds, attacker’s choice.
• Amphibious reinforcement not treated as amphibious attack.
Mobilise:
• Mobilise in capital only, except Brit may mobilise in India.
• If no inf, must convert a new unit to inf (no refund).
• Ships mobilise at friendly and originally controlled territory with
naval base.
Income:
• Unrestricted Sub Warfare: Germany may declare any time.
During Brit and US turns, German subs in sea zones 2, 7, 8
roll dice to reduce income.
End:
• Capture and hold 2 enemy capitals at end of round, including
London / Paris / Berlin.
Units:
• Attacking tanks absorb hits, except in amphibious assault.
• Art gets free shot (3) when defending in amphibious assaults.
• Subs may move through hostile sea zones.
• Subs may individually decide to submerge in lieu of die roll,
but still vulnerable in that combat round.
• Transports must be accompanied by warship to enter hostile
sea zone.
• Transports may carry two land units / fighters. Such units may
not move before / after loading & unloading. May not unload to
two territories. If carrying for allies, they load and unload in
separate rounds.
• Battleships: 2 hits, free repair at friendly naval base when
buying units. Shore bombardment during amphibious assault,
limited by land units offloading.
Others:
• Using Suez Canal require friendly Egypt.
• When capturing opponent capital, steal full treasury.
• When capital has fallen, no income.

Civilization (Gibson Games)
Start:
• See Sec 42 for picking start locations and # Mysticism cards.
• 8 fewer tokens if 7P (use 48).
Concepts:
• Note flood plains and volcanoes.
• Unused token = stock. Shifted to treasury = money. On board =
unit.
• 11 techs max.
• Reduce city = convert to # unit according to land capacity.
Round:
1. Taxation. $2 per city from Stock to Treasury.
• Revolt if can’t pay. Player with most Stock claim city(ies).
2. Population growth. 1 unit add 1, 2+ units add 2.
3. Census. Update population count.
4. Build ships. $2 to build, $1 to maintain. May instead spend unit on
map next to ship.
5. Movement. Order: census. Each unit may move 1 step, or onto
then off ship. Ship capacity 5, move 4. Only coastal move initially.
6. Conflict. Occurs on land only and only when total units > land
capacity. City fully uses land capacity.
• Battle: Starting with weakest army, take turns removing 1 unit
until land capacity not exceeded. If tied, remove tokens
simultaneously.
• City under attack by 7+ tokens convert to 6 tokens. If attacked
by fewer, remove attackers. If attacked by multiple enemies,
enemies fight first before city is attacked. If city defended by
own units, units fight before city is attacked. If not enough
tokens to convert city to 6 tokens, city immediately converts to
enemy’s.
• After conflicts, reduce unsupported cities (need 2 units per
city) - convert excess cities to units according to land capacity.
7. Build cities. Need 6+ tokens at city site, 12+ at non city site. Max
9 cities per player. May not exceed city support capability when
building city.
8. Acquire trade cards (1 per city). Order: fewer cities, then reverse
progress chart. Red calamities are revealed for resolution later
this round.
• May buy gold for $18 cash each.
9. Trade. Min 3 cards. Declare honestly total value and 1 good
type. Exchange facedown. After receiving black calamity, may
not further trade to others, must resolve this round.
10.Buy tech(s). Order: Reverse progress chart. Pay by goods
(return to bottom of stacks) and treasury, no change given.
Note discounts. If buying >1, newly bought cards don’t give
discount yet.
11.Resolve calamities. Order: ascending calamity.
• Token = 1 unit point, city = 5 unit point. Ships not affected.
• Max suffer 2 calamities, but no limit in participating in others.
• Reduce unsupported cities.
12.Return excess trade / calamity cards exceeding 6.
13.Alter progress chart. Progress as long as meeting requirement.
• Epoch 2: 2 cities. Epoch 3: 3 tech colours. Epoch 4: 7 techs.
Epoch 5: tech cards of value 1000. Thereafter point value
counts techs, cash and goods.
• From Epoch 2 onwards, if no city, move backwards.
• Within Epoch 5, if not meeting requirement on current space,
move backwards.
End:
• Reach finish circle. Count techs, cash and goods.
• Tiebreaker total point value.
Others:
• Order is always Progress Chart unless otherwise specified.

Clash of Cultures
Start:
• Player: food marker on 2, others 0. Farming and Mining advances.
Settlement and Settler on fertile space of start tile. 1 Action card, 1
Objective card.
Concepts:
• Events on player board – draw event if Culture / Happiness marker
reaches these spots. Note icons on cards.
• City size = resource collection capacity = unit build capacity = cultural
influence range. City size limited by # cities.
• Happy city collects resource / build unit as if 1 size larger. Angry city
collects resource / build unit as if size 1, cannot grow, can activate only
once. City becomes angry if damaged by barbarian.
Structure: 6 rounds x 3 turns x 3 actions per player. Perform Status phase
at the end of a round.
a) Advance. 2 food / idea. If new category, must get top advance, else
freely choose. Note prerequisites (red or arrow). If blue/yellow outline,
increase Culture/Happiness max and gain Culture/Mood token. Govt
advances mutually exclusive, if pick new form of govt, transfer cubes to
advances under new govt.
b) Found 1 city, using settler, on non-barren land w/o foreign unit.
c) Activate city. If same city activated more than once per turn, reduce
mood.
i. Build unit.
ii. Collect resource. Depends on city terrain and adjacent, 1 resource
per space w/o another city or foreign unit.
iii. Increase size.
d) Move unit (max 3 units/groups of same origin & destination). Resolve
combat after each move.
• Land move = 1 step. No more move after battle or entering
mountain. No moving into battle after entering forest. Settler cannot
meet foreign unit or city unless accompanied by army. Moving onto /
off ship is 1 move.
• Sea move = to any connected sea. If know Navigation, outside
border treated as sea, but may not move past undiscovered tile.
Ship can carry 2 land units. No movement after battle.
e) Civic improvement. Pay mood token = size of city to improve city mood.
1 action to do so multiple times / cities.
f) Cultural influence (max 1 success per turn). Target foreign of size 2+ in
range of your city (range = city size). Success on 5 or 6 – replace 1
non-settlement city piece with yours. May pay culture to increase range
or die result.
• City under influence may not attempt to influence others.
• May target own city (remove foreign influence).
Status phase:
• Declare completed Objectives. End game if 1 player eliminated.
• Free advance.
• Draw 1 Action card + 1 Objective card.
• May raze one size 1 city and gain 1 gold.
• Determine start player. Player with highest Culture + Happiness level
decides who. If it is current start player, no change in player order.
Combat:
• Roll dice = # army units, then divide by 5 for hits. Repeat until battle
concludes or attacker retreats.
• Attacker may declare use of 1 Action card, then defender may declare.
• Capture city – Replace all city pieces with yours, except those under 3rd
party influence. If city wasn’t angry, receive gold = city size, loser gains
settler at another city. Conquered city becomes angry. If no advance to
use captured city piece, cannot use its ability. If not enough of own piece
to replace city piece, remove and gain gold instead.
End:
• 1VP / city piece, 0.5VP / advance, 5VP / wonder, 2VP / Objective.
• Tiebreaker Pyramids, then city, advance, wonder, Objective.
Others:
• Gold = joker.
• Fortress: for first combat roll, +1 die, cancel 1 hit. Academy: 2 idea when
built. Temple: 1 mood / culture when built. Port: may build ship, may
collect 1 gold / mood from sea instead of food.
• Stacking limit of 4 armies, except those on ship. No limit for ships and
settlers.
• Events and Barbarians: See rules pg13.
• Barbarians: If capture settlement, 1 gold per defeated barbarian. May
keep settlement (but make it angry) or raze for 1 gold.
• Objectives: Same trigger cannot fulfill two objective cards of same type.
• Trading allowed on active player’s turn – resources, Action, Objective,
mood, culture. Promises non-binding.
• Wonders: Revealed by advances to become available to all. When
completed, place at city, i.e. can be captured.
• Explore: By land - tile placement priority (1) entry space non-sea, (2)
sea adjacent to sea, (3) sea adjacent to outer border. By sea – sea
adjacent to ship origin then move ship, or ship doesn’t move.
• If barbarian icon, place barbarian + settlement on fertile land.
• Variants: see rules pg23.
CO2
Start:
• Player: 1 scientist, 2 CEP, 1 secret goal, 5 lobby cards (if new players,
use drafting), $3/4/4/5/5
• Board: Green power plants stack lowest on top. Random dirty power
plant per region on energy demand space and mark total pollution,
shuffle remainder face-down.
• CEPs in region according to empty energy demand spaces. 2 CEPs in
market at $3.
• Random 2-topic summit tiles on board, all other summit tiles shuffled
face-down. Random regional agenda tiles, remove remainder.
• 10 UN goals. Reveal 1 event, and reveal top event of deck.
Concepts:
• Always adjust pollution total based on all dirty plants.
• CEP must be spent whenever a dirty plant needs to be built.
Game Structure: Played over decades
1. Supply phase (skip on 1st decade)
a. Income. 1st two players in each energy source expertise, including
tied. Earn in any mix of $ and VP.
b. Energy supply. Any region with tech resource consumes one.
• Check if energy demand met, if not add dirty plant. Region
controller pays CEP from hand, else from controlled region, else
sell VP to buy. If region uncontrolled, use region CEP.
c. Event. If pollution >= 350, players not supplying green power to
region must give 1 tech resource or lose 2VP. In future anyone
building green plant can use 1 tech resource from region. Event card
discarded.
2. Operations phase. 5/4/3/2 rounds for 2/3/4/5P.
• Turn :
i. 1 main action.
a) Propose project. Place project tile, dark side up, on empty
project space of region needing such project (on agenda).
Receive grant according to project space. If $, see # CEP, but
min $1. If scientist, move one or gain one.
b) Install project. Pay 1 CEP from hand or controlled region to flip
proposed project. Gain benefit on project. Own scientist may
stay, others’ must be paid $1 to be removed.
c) Construct plant. Requires $, expertise and tech resource.
Mark ownership, earn VP, gain 1 expertise. Check region
control. Remove project tile. Must send scientist away (pay $1
if other player’s).
•
If region spaces full, new plant replaces oldest dirty plant.
Region gains 1 CEP from market, but mustn’t exceed energy
demand spaces.
ii. Free move(s). Max 1 per type, any time during turn.
a) Move 1 scientist. From hand / project to vacant project, or
from project to matching summit topic. If move own scientist
when installing project / constructing plant, considered used.
b) Visit market. Choose:
• Buy 1 CEP. If exhausted, refill two, price + 1.
• Sell 1 CEP from hand. Only if no price change so far on
your turn. Price - 1.
c) Play lobby card or score UN goal card.
• Lobby card used in 1 of 2 ways. Bigger benefit requires
action.
• UN goal. Pay 1 resource to claim fulfilled card.
iii. Increase expertise. Pick 1 project with own scientist.
Expertise gained by: Working scientist at end of turn, building green plant,
completion of summit, scientist returned to hand after removed by
opponent.
Expertise benefits: Income, license to build green plants, region control
tiebreaker, bonus when reaching specific levels
Summits: Every symbol allows 1 scientist. Scientist can only leave when
summit filled up. Gain corresponding expertise for scientist(s) + one only
for any topic. Draw new summit.
Region control: Compare diff energy type. Tiebreaker: preferred energy
type, expertise in preferred energy type, latecomer.
End: end of last round, or 2 regions all green plants, or pollution returns to <
350, or pollution >= 500 (everyone loses).
• Claim CEP from controlled regions, sell all CEP at current price, Income.
• Final scoring: secret goal, 1VP / $2, 3VP for most tech resources, 3VP
for most UN goals. If any tied, all score.
• Tiebreaker: most green plants; expertise in forestation, solar, cold
fusion, biomass, recycling; region control.
Others:
• If region already filled with green plants, still possible to propose and
install projects, but not to build new green plants.
• If own scientist sent away by opponent, either keep scientist for 1
expertise in origin project, or send scientist to summit of corresponding
energy source.
• May discard secret goal (still secret) for $8 any time.
• Negative points possible.
• CEP always gained from market, always paid to bank.
2P: 7 UN goals, During income, only 1st player earns.
5P: 6th decade is final decade.

adding enemy cubes equal to diff to all relevant adjacent regions.
Only expand to regions not already having presence. Applies to
Habsburg politicians too, but they are always removed by enemy
cubes. Apply Polish defense and enemy canceling each other.
12. Estates: If enemy present in region, remove # estate equal to diff
between enemy strength and # nobles, at least 1 estate. If no new

• Adjust price trend depending on start companies.
• Remove some assets cards if 3/4P. Divide into 4 stacks by
value to shuffle, then restack, then deal 2 per player.
Structure: (12/8/8 years for 3/4/5P)
Year:
1. Announcements: Simultaneously choose and reveal asset,
then adjust price trend. Mark asset with player marker. Draw
asset card.
2. Market Forces: Adjust price.
3. Investments: Co with <4 assets may blind bid on assets,
min $10. Co’s select 1 asset each based on bid amount.
Player who had marker on asset takes highest free position
in co (CEO>CFO>COO). If co buys from CEO, pay double.
4. Production (mandatory): for primary producers.
5. Trade & process: Trade goods & cash, not assets, between
co’s. Money gained is put in new income and cannot be reused. Goods can be re-traded. Deals can involve future
promises but they are not binding, and both sides must still
give something. Processing can be done any time.
6. Sales: If sell, money goes to new income. If store, pay costs
7. Close books (except new co’s): Compare last year vs this
year income to see if boot is placed. Shift money (this year
income -> last year income -> free cash)
8. Blame game (co’s with boots): CEO, CFO & COO each
blames one of themselves. Anyone blamed is fired and gets
exit bonus of 40/20/20% of co free cash (round down).
Promote upwards. Lose 1 asset. If no more executives, co
liquidates and all assets discarded.
9. Bid for status symbols, gold then silver, using personal
cash. $10 bid units. Next player after gold winner becomes
start player and starts silver bid. Gold winner cannot bid.
10.Entrepreneurs: Bid to start 1 new co. Players with 2+ co’s
cannot bid. Min $50. Winner becomes CEO, gets $100 free
cash for co, choose 0-4 discarded assets. Adjust price trend
based on new co.
End:
• End of year when all assets played.
• Most status points wins. Tiebreaker personal cash.
Others:
• If players take action, follow player order. If companies take
action, follow highest asset #, else highest company #.
• Money is public.
• Discarded assets are only available to new co’s at $0.
• # of co’s is determined by # players.
Hammer of the Scots (rules v3.0)
Setup: Refer Section 8 of rule book.
Year:
1. Reshuffle all cards and each player draws 5.
2. Simultaneously play 1 card. Event card or higher card is 1st player,
English wins ties. Resolve event. Year ends early if both are event cards.
3. Movement. 1st player moves then 2nd player.
• Must stop when meeting enemy.
• Move 1 to 3 groups according to card value. Group can split up.
• Border limit (each player): black – 6, red – 2 and must stop.
• Pinning. Same number as enemy blocks pinned. Unpinned blocks may
not cross borders used by attacker.
• Norse movement costs 1 point. Moves from coast to any coast, and
may retreat to any friendly coast. May not enter England.
4. Combat resolution. 1st player determines sequence if multiple battles.
• Welsh & Irish. Roll loyalty at battle start. 5/6 – go to replacement pool.
• Max 3 combat rounds, after which attacker must retreat.
• Every combat round, a block may fire, retreat or pass. Defender first.
Apply hits immediately before next player rolls.
• Strength = # of dice. Rating = combat priority & die result to hit. Nobles
become B3 when defending home area.
• If attacking from multiple areas, only 1 group is main attack, others are
reserves which fight starting round 2 (if main attack survives).
Defender reinforcements also are reserves.
• Hit allocation to strongest block. If tied, owner picks.
• Retreat. To friendly or neutral area. Border limits apply per combat
round. May not use borders used by enemy, if same border used by
both sides, the later user controls it. Eliminated if unable to retreat.
• Regroup. Any/all victorious blocks may move to adjacent neutral or
friendly area. Border limits apply. Norse block may regroup to same
coastline.
• Defeated nobles switch sides and goes to reserve for next combat
round.
5. Repeat 2 to 4 until all cards used.
6. Wintering.
• Nobles return home, English first.
• If home occupied by enemy, noble switches sides.
• Moray need not return home. Scottish king may go to any friendly
cathedral.
• English knights, archers and hobelars return to replacement pool
unless wintering with Edward I. Edward I may winter in Scotland up to
1305, forgoing feudal levy, but not twice in a row.
• Neither king may winter in England.
• Wallace may go to Selkirk and gain 2 steps if not enemy occupied.
• Check wintering limit based on castles and cathedrals, eliminate
unsupplied blocks. Troops wintering with Edward I exempted. Nonnoble blocks may be voluntarily returned to replacement pool.
• Use replacement steps to heal blocks. Scots may use this to draw a
block at strength 1, but must still adhere to block limit. English may
heal infantry or nobles only.
• English feudal levy (if Edward I did not winter in Scotland). Shuffle and
draw half (round up) from replacement pool, place in England.
End:
• Control all Scottish nobles (for English, Moray must be dead or in
replacement pool), or control more at game end.
• Scots win if Edward II killed in battle.
• English wins if Scottish King killed in battle.
Map:
• Castle value = wintering limit and replacement steps.
• Cathedral = castle value for Scottish.
• Anglo-Scottish border. English may not retreat or regroup across this
border to Scotland, and vice versa. Crossing this border costs 1 point per
block.
Others:
• Permanently eliminated blocks (in battle only): Moray, Wallace, Norse,
Hobelars, French knights.
• Border raids. If Scots control England, English must eliminate 1 non-noble
block every turn.
• Edward block is Edward I until killed or until end of 1306. Edward II cannot
winter in Scotland.
• Scottish King can be crowned by Scottish player in lieu of event card
effect: (1) Wallace dead, Bruce in Fife, full strength King placed in Fife. All
Comyn nobles defect, and attack where coexisting with Scots. (2) Ditto
but Comyn crowned instead. (3) 1301 onwards, French knight in
Scotland, King placed with French knight. All Bruce nobles defect.
• French knights added to Scots pool only when 8+ Scottish nobles.

• 15 Muslim countries have Fair+ governance.
• No more Jihadist cells.
• Jihadist:
• 6 resources worth of Muslim countries have Islamist rule, including 2 adjacent.
• US prestige at 1, and 15 Muslim countries have Poor- governance.

Turn:
• Alternately play 2 cards, starting with Jihadist. Play card for operations value or
event. Each time after US action, resolve all Plots.
• Event:
• May only trigger own side or neutral event.
• Lingering means long-term effect.
• Lapsing means Lingering until end of Turn.
• Operations value:
• Using opponent’s card causes his event to happen, except 1 st Jihadist card
used for Plot each Turn. Active player decides whether event happens first.
• US: ops required depends on governance of target country. If Islamist rule,
may only do Regime Change. Single location.
• Jihadist: ops value determines # of dice, governance is success range.
Multiple locations possible.
a) Reserves. Value 1 or 2 cards only. Reserves may be fully spent later within
same Turn to boost other operations to value 3.
b) (US) War of Ideas.
i. In Muslim country: Try to improve a Neutral’s Alignment or an Ally’s
Governance. Good govt removes Regime Change, Besieged Regime
and Aid. Success on 5. If Regime Change country, WOI allowed only if
troops > cells by 5. If fail by 1, may place first Aid marker.
ii. Non Muslim country: Change Posture. If result matches US, Prestige +1.
c) (US) Deploy. Move troops from one place to another (incl troops track).
Destination country governance determines ops value, and must be Ally.
i. Regime Change. Need Hard Posture. Target is Islamist rule. Play 3value card. Deploy 6+ troops. Place Regime Change marker. Roll
Governance. Alignment becomes Ally. Sleeper cells activated. Roll
Prestige.
ii. Withdraw: Need Soft Posture. Play 3-value card. Withdraw troops from
Regime Change country (disregarding cells). Remove Aid marker. Place
Besieged Regime marker. Roll Prestige.
d) (US) Disrupt. Require Ally, or 2 troops, or non-Muslim. If 2+ troops or
country Posture Hard, affect 2 cells (remove active or activate sleeper),
otherwise 1. If all cells removed, put cadre. If only cadre present, remove. If
2+ troops, Prestige +1.
•
•
e) (US) Alert. Play 3-value card. Reveal and remove 1 Plot. Permanently if
WMD.
f) (US) Reassessment. Play two value-3 cards to change US Posture. No
reserves allowed.
g) (Jihadist) Recruit: Place sleeper cell in country with cell or cadre. Remove
cadre if any. Auto-success if Regime Change. Some countries need rolling
REC# or lower (ignore governance).
h) (Jihadist) Travel: Auto-success for adjacent. If succeed, cell sleeps; if fail,
lose cell.
i) (Jihadist) Jihad: Muslim (except Iran) and non Islamist rule. Need 1 cell per
die roll. Sleeper cell becomes active. Each success worsens Governance
and removes 1 Aid. If cells > troops by 5+ and Jihadist activates all sleeper
cells, 2 successful rolls on a single card shifts from Poor to Islamist Rule.
• Failed roll removes cell.
• If 3 dice rolled for major jihad vs Poor failed, place Besieged Regime
marker, Alignment shift towards Ally. Besieged Regime only needs 1
successful Jihad roll to become Islamist Rule.
• When becoming Islamist Rule, Alignment  Adversary. Increase
Jihadist funding by country’s resource. If troops present, Prestige  1.
• First time Pakistan becomes Islamist Rule, place 3 WMD Plots from
Pakistan Arsenal Box to Available Plots.
j) (Jihadist) Plot: Any country not Islamist Rule. 1 cell (activated) per roll.
Each successful roll places an available Plot with value <= card value, or
WMD, face down. Plots only revealed when blocked by Alert action or
resolved.
US may discard or hold last card.
End of turn:
• Jihadist funding -1.
• US prestige -1 if any Islamist rule. +1 if World Posture = 3 and same as US
Posture.
• Event lapse, reset 1st Plot marker, reset Reserves.
• Deal cards.
• Flip green Regime Change markers.
Resolving Plots:
• Funding: Muslim country or Iran, governance Fair/Poor +1, Good +2. Non-WMD
non-Muslim country, +Plot#, +2xPlot# if Good governance. WMD in non-Muslim,
or Plot in US, Funding  9.
• Posture: If non-Muslim, roll Posture. If WMD, Jihadist may reroll. If Schengen area,
Jihadist rolls for 2 other Schengen countries to roll.
• Prestige: If has troops, Prestige -1, or Prestige  1 if WMD. If in US, Prestige roll.
• Governance/Aid: Muslim, roll dice equal to Plot# (3 if WMD) as if attempting Jihad.

Turn:
A. Mandated Offensive. -1VP if don’t attack. If capital conquered, shift
right. AUS/CND/PT/ANA not considered BR, SN not TU.
B. Actions (6 rounds, CP first).
a) Operations (OPS). Activation points for a space depends on
nationalities count, but see exceptions (9.2.3). Activate for Move
OR Attack, not both. In Near East, AP may only activate 1 space
for combat, except MEF beach heads. See MEF and Near East
exceptions (9.2.7.1, 11.3). Activated unit may stay idle. Execute
move then attack.
b) Strategic Redeployment (SR). No consecutive SR within Turn. 1
SR point for Corp, 4 SR point for Army. Each unit max once per
action round. Units must be in supply, and via friendly space (or
besieged enemy fort), incl Reserve. RU SR only in Russia. Corps

without own fort becomes enemy controlled (regardless of whether
connected to enemy supply source).
D. Siege. Roll for > fort LF. Die rolls -2 if Aug & Sep 1914.
E. War Status.
1. VP table.
2. Auto-victory.
3. Armistice (combined war status).
4. War commitment level (except Turn 1). If increased, add cards and
reshuffle with discard pile. When CP at Limited War, TU enters (not
part of neutral entry limit).

Concepts:
• Stack limit: 3 except during movement or SR. Forts don’t count.
• Movement: Move stacks, then units, one by one. Must not end move in
space with Attack marker. May enter fort space only if can siege it.
Control space entered unless besieged enemy fort.
• Exceptions: 11.1.9 – 11.1.17.
• Entrench. One Army per space may attempt in lieu of movement. Roll
for <= Loss Factor (LF). Enemy entering trench or trench space suffers
attrition, trench reduced.
• Supply: Checked during activation and before each combat resolution.
Traced through friendly controlled spaces or besieged enemy fort (and
not own besieged fort) to supply source. May trace through friendly
port, CP can use those in GE and RU, AP can use those not.
Exceptions:
• RO and SE can trace through dashed lines to RU off map boxes.
• MN, ANA, SN, SB (if in SB) don’t need to trace supply.
• TU in Medina always in supply for attrition purpose only.
• CP may not use besieged Riga for sea supply.

Army, or # Corps matching fort LF). Forts can be killed by attacks, not
necessary to besiege. Once destroyed, remains so permanently. GE
may not attack RU forts (but may besiege those unoccupied) until
OberOst event or CP war status = 4. Units may not leave space with
enemy fort such that fort is not besieged afterwards.
US entry:
• US active when at Zimmerman Telegraph box, but cannot play US
Reinforcements yet. Over There may not be played in same turn as
Zimmerman Telegraph. US reinforcements max 1 per turn.
RU capitulation:
• Whenever a previously met requirement is no longer met, move marker
backwards.
• When Fall of the Tsar occurs, use Tsar Fell Russian VP marker to
mark current CP Russian VP marker.
• After Treaty of Brest-Litovsk: RU units may not operate outside RU,
GE, TU, Austria and RO. Any RU units outside of these are eliminated.
RU units may not be stacked with Allies. Eliminate those currently
stacked. RU units may not attack or be attacked except by TU in Near
East. Claiming unoccupied spaces and besieging forts still allowed.
End: (any one of these conditions)
• During War Status Phase E2, CP auto-wins if VP>=20, AP if VP<=0.
• End of scenario. Check VP depending on scenario, sec 5.0.
• Armistice.
• Accept Peace Terms.
Others:
• Deserts cannot be activated or attacked into in summer, but forts in
deserts can still be besieged.
• May discard combat cards before war commitment level change
reshuffle.
• See 12.4.7 for permanently eliminated Armies.
• See 12.6 for Withdrawal card.
• See 2nd last page for Near East Exceptions.
Combat:
• May not attack space containing only enemy retreated in current action
round.
• May attack from multiple spaces. Units in single space may attack
different enemy spaces. If multi-national attack, at least 1 attack space
must contain all involved nations. London and Taranto exception –
12.1.10.
• Combat resolution:
1. Designate combat.
2. Determine combat strengths (add up combat factor).
3. Trench-negating combat cards.
4. Attempt flank attack. If attack from multiple spaces, at least 1 Army,
defending space not Swamp / Mountain / entrenched / unoccupied
fort. Designate pinning space. Each non-pinning spaces not next to
other enemy units via solid lines give +1 DRM to flank attempt
(>=4). If success, attacker does steps 6-9 before defender, and vice
versa.
5. Combat cards. Attack play and/or use in-play cards, then defender.
6. Determine DRM. Sinai exception 12.2.7.
7. Determine fire column. Check unit type and terrain.
8. Determine results.
9. Take losses. Defender first. Reduce / eliminate unit or fort as much
as possible, but don’t exceed Loss Number. Eliminated Army
replaced by Corps in Reserve if possible, else permanently
removed. If 2x3LF Armies suffer 7LP, or 2x2LF Armies suffer 5LP,
and no Corps in Reserve, must eliminate one Army. See special
priorities 12.4.4.3 – 12.4.5. Only destroy fort when no unit survives.
10.Determine winner (cause higher loss). If tied, both lose.
11.Defender retreat, if attacker wins and has full strength unit. Retreat 1
step if loss number difference is 1, else 2 steps. If entrenched,
forest, desert, mountain or swamp, defender may stay by taking 1
step loss. Eliminated if unable to retreat (permanently if Army or
Army reduced to Corp). MN Corp eliminated if forced to retreat. May
not retreat by sea or to unbesieged enemy fort. Units may retreat to
different spaces. 1st priority friendly space, then vacant enemy
space (gain control of final destination). 2nd priority retreat to space
in supply. If 2 step retreat, apply rule for each step. If already
retreated units are attacked again, they don’t contribute CF or LF,
and are all eliminated if enemy causes at least 1 Loss Number.
12.Attacker advance, to empty space vacated by defender. Optional for
each full strength unit. Must stop if forest / mountain / swamp /
desert. If enemy fort present, advance allowed if able to besiege,
further advance allowed if sufficient units besiege.
Perikles
Start:
• Board: 10 face-up influence tiles, 7 face-up location tiles.
• Players: 1 face-down special tile, 2 cubes per city, then 2
rounds of placing 1 cube in preferred city.
Structure: (3 turns of 4 phases each)
• (round 2 on) All influence tiles reshuffled before dealt,
previous Athens leader is start player.
• Select influence tile and place cubes. Can assassinate
cube or propose candidate (not necessarily same city as
tile). Refill after selecting. Players take turns to select 5/5/4
tiles for 3/4/5P. Must select different colour if available.
• Propose candidate. Must have own cube in city. Do so until
all 12 candidate spaces are filled.
• Election. Candidate with most cubes win, tiebreaker is
alpha position. Both candidate cubes are removed. Winner
removes additional cubes of same # as loser.
• Commit forces. Sparta controller decides start player. City
controller takes city army, player with no city control takes
Persians. One round of recovering dead units, one per city,
lowest value of type selected.
• All 2-shard tiles are used first, each tile allows 0-2 units to
be committed (can be from different cities and/or to
different locations).
• Units played face-down, can be stacked. Allied units can be
a mix.
• Main attacker/defender must be filled before allies
• May not attack own city’s location
• May not defend other city’s location w/o permission
• If city A attacks city B’s location, from then on A may
not defend B’s location or join forces in any battle.
• Same player may never have units on both sides of a
battle.
• May spend 1 cube to send 2 more units
• Resolve battle. Intrinsic defenders always defend, intrinsic
attackers only when there is a main attacker. Consult
combat table for die roll needed to collect battle token.
Stronger side determines best column. Combatants roll 2
dice, and first to collect 2 battle tokens wins. Else roll until
tie broken.
• Loser loses 1 unit, priority main combatant.
• If 2-round combat, winner of 1st round starts 2nd round with 1
battle token already won.
• Winner takes location tile. If defender loses, place defeat
counter on highest VP square of city.
• If location not attacked, set aside face-up. Main defender
adds 2 cubes to city.
• Surviving units return to city.
• Leaders become monuments. Uncommitted units return to
city.
End
• End of 3rd turn, or end of turn after Athens or Sparta has 4
defeats.
• Score:
• 1VP per cube in city
• VP on location tiles
• VP for statues (accordingly to highest uncovered VP
square of city)
• Tiebreaker: VP from locations, then # of statues.
Others:
• If a player(s) control Persians, commit forces and resolve
battle as normal, except Persian units never die.
• Special tiles may not be used for instant victory.

• >1 player may contribute goods to build.
• Max 1 building per tile (home not counted).
• Some buildings require specific terrain. No building on desert.

• Walls are built between 2 tiles, except not 2 sea tiles. Walls can be
strengthened. Each build or strengthen action must use goods
from only one tile. If demolishing, replace with neutral wall.
4. Wonder
• May spend goods at home tile with transporter present to buy
bricks for wonder. 1 good for 1st brick, 2 for 2nd, etc. Cost increases
after 4 rows: 2 goods for 1st brick, 3 for 2nd, etc.
• 1 neutral brick added after all players are done.
• Game ends immediately when reaching specific spot on Wonder,
or last neutral brick used.
End:

Robinson Crusoe: Adventure on the Cursed Island
Setup: (see scenario sheets for special modifications)
• Board: morale 0; weapon 0; 9 starting & 5 random inventions; tile 8 &
camp on board; black marker on shovel card – beach; 2 starting
items; event deck with same # rounds as scenario, half book half
adventure; food crates card in rightmost space of Threat Action field;
• Players: 2 pawns and character-specific Invention.
• 2P: no soldier character, Friday in play.
• 4P: use alternative Arranging the Camp card.
• 1P: like 2P, use Dog, Morale +1 before Morale phase.
Round:
1. Event (not 1st round)
2. Morale: Lose / gain Determination. Start player takes wound(s) if
short.
3. Production: Gain resource(s) from camp tile, they are immediately
available.
4. Action (place pawns, then resolve).
• Actions can be repeated, except Threats.
• If 1 pawn used for a 1/2 pawn action, roll Action dice.
• 2 pawn actions can be done by different players, but 2nd pawn is
only supporting and gains no benefit / loss.
• Actions needing resources / requirements can be only taken if
resources available / requirements met at planning stage. New
resources gained this round cannot be used.
• Determination gained this round can be used.
• Resolution order: left to right.
5. Weather. Check scenario to roll dice. Also note any token on board.
Winter cloud reduces wood. Total cloud costs food & wood if
insufficient roof. Do storm last, it reduces palisade.
6. Night. Eat 1 food per player, 2 wounds if short.
• Decide whether to move camp 1 step. If manmade Shelter,
Palisade & Roof halved round favourably, if natural Shelter, lose
Palisade & Roof. Remove Shortcut and turn its card back to
Invention side. Bring along +1 resource tokens.
• Everyone 1 wound if no Shelter.
• Untreated food rots.
• Reset character skill usage, increase round#, change start player.
Actions details:
• Threat: if Threat unresolved and must slide off, it takes effect.
• Build: Shelter protects from sleeping in open. Roof protects from
weather, requires Shelter at camp. Palisade protests from storm &
others, requires Shelter at camp. Weapon is for hunting (injury
prevention).
• Shelter / roof / palisade cost must be paid in one resource type, not
mixed. Weapons cost wood.
• Gathering resources: Only on spaces 1 or 2 steps away from Camp,
need extra pawn if 2 steps away. Gather only 1 resource type per
action.
• Explore: Only spaces 1 or 2 steps away from Camp, need extra pawn
if 2 steps away. Mark Inventions with matching terrain. If Beast icon,
shuffle a Beast card into Hunting deck. If Mystery icon, check
Scenario. Gain any discovery tokens, turn face-up, but available only
after Action phase.
End:
• Win if fulfill scenario goal. Lose if anyone dies or goal not achieved by
last round.
Others:
• Unfulfilled Demand concept: Take wound in lieu. For effects affecting
all players, everyone takes wound.
• Start player gains/loses Determination during morale phase.
• Characters: Skills are once per round, cost Determination. Whenever
pass Morale icon, group loses morale; healing doesn’t undo. When
build character invention, gain 2 Determination. Invention is then
available to group.
• Additional pawns gained during game are restricted to action types
can only be a supporting pawn, never action on its own.
• Only one token of each type allowed on a space, incl penalty.
• Tokens on Action fields usually one-time effect, on other parts of the
board usually permanent.
• Mystery Cards. If asked to draw multiple, may stop after resolving first
matching card.
• Heal only at Night, except Rest action and Cook ability.
• Friday: Generally not treated as a player character (ignores weather,
eating, shelter), but may act alone. May use Determination to reroll
die. When getting Adventure die roll, takes 1 wound instead of
drawing Adventure card.
• Dog: May not act alone. May only support Explore / Hunt.
• 2-food Discovery token rots at Night phase.
• Event requiring fighting beast – only first player fights it.
• See rules for adjusting difficulty and variants.

Tragedy Looper
Objective:
• Protagonists: prevent tragedy while staying alive, or if still can’t by
last loop, guess all characters correctly. Mastermind: prevent this.
Concepts:
• Structure of a Script: Select a Set. Create Script using plots and
subplots available in the Set. Assign characters to roles, 1
character having 0 or 1 role. Add scheduled Incidents from those
available in Set. Any character (with or without role) can be
Culprit, but a character can be Culprit of at most 1 Incident.
• Characters:
• Paranoia limit = level which can trigger incident.
• Goodwill = level which allows Protagonist or Mastermind to
use Goodwill ability.
• Intrigue = effect depends on plot in play.
• Passive ability is always active.
• Locations may receive Intrigue tokens. Effect depends on plots.
• Recommended table talk rules: May not tell one another what
cards are being played.
Round Structure:
• X Loops of Y Days depending on Script. 1 Day = 1 Round.
• Mastermind plays 3 cards facedown on character or location,
max 1 per character / location.
• Protagonists play 1 card each facedown, not on same character /
location.
• Mastermind resolve all cards.
• Mastermind abilities. Only announce results, not character or
what actually happened.
• Protagonist Leader uses Goodwill. Mastermind resolves
outcome, only announcing results and not elaborating.
• Incidents. Check scheduled timing, Culprit still alive, and Culprit
at required Paranoia level. If Incident has additional condition
which is not met, Mastermind must declare Incident has occurred
but no effect.
• Switch Leader for next Day.
Others:
• Only Intrigue cards have effect on locations, but other cards can
still be played as bluffs.
• If 2 or more Forbid Intrigue cards played anywhere on same Day,
all cancelled.
• Goodwill counters are not removed when Goodwill is used.
• Mastermind must tell whether Protagonist lose a Loop because
they are killed or they lose because of Tragedy.
• If First Steps Set, no Final Guess.
2P: Protagonist player plays all three Protagonists. Note
Protagonists have slight advantage.
3P: Leader plays two Protagonists.

5.
6.
7.
8.
c) Declare war. Pay CP cost.
• Once declaring on minor power, may not influence it for rest of
game.

5. VP Domination. Turn 4 and later. 5VP more than everyone else.
6. VP Time Limit. Turn 7.
• HRE reveals religious preference only to win or to stop someone else.
Concepts for Actions:
• Line of Communication (LOC) from fortified home space (own or ally) is needed
for actions that change space control. LOC path valid if friendly controlled, no
enemy units / leaders, no unrest; sea zone OK if own ship present.
• Take unfortified space: either own unit present, or own unit adjacent while
enemy unit not adjacent.
• Unrest: Stop most actions (see 12.4), but can still be target of conversion /
rebellion. May remove unrest similar to taking unfortified space, except no LOC
required.
• Displaced units go to nearest fortified space, capital, or controlled port.
Movement Concepts:
• May not move again within same impulse if: (a) have lost battle, (b) have joined
siege.
• Army leaders captured be enemy units become captured, while naval leaders
go to turn track for next turn.
• Interception: Possible when enemy adjacent to destination. Enemy moves into
destination before active player’s formation.
• May not intercept formation moving to friendly space which is not under
siege. May not intercept into siege space.
• Intercepting formation may be a subset of units.
• Roll 2 dice + best battle rating + Otto / Telescope factor, need 9.
• Avoid Battle: An option for enemy in destination.
• May be used by subset of units.
• Only allowed to escape to friendly or allied spaces.
• Not allowed if own units had just arrived using Intercept.
• Not allowed if unaccompanied leader.
• Roll 2 dice + best battle rating + Otto / Telescope factor, need 9. Exception:
if all avoiding are battle losers, auto-success.
• Withdraw into fortification: An option for enemy in destination if <= 4 units.
• If defender withdraws but attacker doesn’t have more units (thus can’t
besiege), attacker may spent CP to move on, or retreat for free.
Battle:
• Attacker declares combat cards, then defender.
• Attacker dice: #units + best battle rating. Defender: #units + best battle rating +
1. Hit on 5 or 6. More hits = win, if tied defender. If double elimination, side
rolling more dice retains 1 unit.
• Loser retreats. Defender may split retreat between fortification & adjacent
space.
• If army eliminated, leaders captured.
Siege:
• Ships in besieged port may still move.
• 1CP to assault, but not on same impulse initiating siege. Max 1 assault per
location per impulse.
• May not assault if defender has ship in adjacent sea zone, or if attacker has
fewer ships in adjacent sea zone than defender has ships in besieged port.
Corsairs don’t count for the above.
• Assault dice (ignore cavalry): Attacker = #units + best battle rating if no
defender. Attacker = #units / 2 (round up) + best battle rating, if defenders
present. Defender = #units + best battle rating + 1.
• Resolve similarly as battles. Cavalry may take hits.
• Assault successful (take control) if attacker at least 1 hit and no defender
remaining.
• See 15.2 for relief forces.
Naval Affairs:
• 1CP allows all ships on board to move.
• Oceans and seas never adjacent.
• Settlements cannot be entered by captains or patrols.

Wilderness War (excluding advanced rules)
Concepts:
• Drilled Troops (square) = regulars, provincials, light infantry.
Militia (square). Auxiliaries (round) = Indians, coureurs, rangers.
Year:
A. Early season & late season
• Deal cards (according to scenario)
• Play cards, French first (may hold 1 card but must play all
cards next season)
a) Activate units: auxiliary per pt, Indians per half pt,
drilled troops per card, leader’s force per card. Each
performs move / battle / raid before the next.
1) Move (pick one of land, boat, naval)
• May drop units, but not pick up
• Stop upon enemy fortification / unbesieged unit
• Only drilled troops may enter unbesieged fort /
fortress
• Unoccupied stockades are captured by drilled
troops, raided by auxiliaries
• Leaders without troops may not meet enemy units.
 Land (land & river paths)
– Drilled troops thru wilderness must stop in next
space.
– All stop when entering mountain.
– Friendly fortification ignores both above.
– Lone leader moves 6 steps.
– Distance limited by unit movement value.
 Boat
– 9 spaces, allowing 1 land link, if both ends
originally friendly cultivated space or friendly
fortification
 Naval (port to port)
– Leader’s force needs card value 3
– Units & leader any card
– British can do amphibious landing by also playing
Amphibious Landing card.
2) Battle / start siege / increase siege / assault
• To increase siege level, need drilled troop and
leader. Activate leader with highest command and
roll for siege.
• For increase siege & assault, stack must not have
moved.
3) Raid (mandatory for auxiliaries not with drilled
troops)
• Originally enemy cultivated space (no re-raid)
• Enemy stockade
• Settlement of enemy Indian units
b) Construct (# locations per card value)
• Not back-to-back turns, even across season.
• Either stockade or fort, not both.
• Stockade where drilled troops present, or cultivated
originally friendly spaces
• Fort where drilled troops present. Requires two separate
card plays to completed.
• Stockade destroyed if enemy drilled troops win battle, or
captured if enemy drilled troops enter.
• May demolish own unbesieged stockade / fort any time on
own turn, but fort costs 1VP.
• Fort under construction not considered fort.
• 1 space only allows 1 fortification type.
c) Event
• When Indians enter, mark settlements with Allied
markers, for Go-Home and possible raiding.
• Brown bar = response events played outside of normal
card play.
• New leaders are randomly drawn.
• British Colonial Politics see 5.54. British Leader see 5.55.
B. Wintering
• Go Home: Indians not in fortification go home. Leaders w/o
troops or fortification go to nearest fortification.
• Score & remove raided markers (round up).
• Attrition of drilled troops if besieged, not in originally friendly
cultivated space, not in fortification (stockade and fort
capacity 4 for attrition). Kill every odd reduced unit, reduce
every full unit. Exception: last unit never killed by attrition.
• Victory check
Wilderness War (cont’)
Battle:
A.Militia participation. For originally friendly cultivated spaces.
All Militia for the department may join, unless dept raided this
year. Louisbourg is not in any dept.
B.Event play, attacker first.
C.Calculate combat factors (DRM & column shift). Attacker
uses overall leader tactic, defender uses any leader with
highest command. If some defenders retreat to fort / fortress,
they don’t participate in battle. If attacking besieging enemy
units, friendly besieged units may participate in attack.
D.Losses, attacker first. Every odd loss must be drilled troops if
possible, then priority undamaged units. If roll natural 1 or 6
and cause at least 1 step loss, opponent rolls leader loss for
each leader. Die on 1.
E.Winner & VP. Win if sole survivor, else more hits to win
(defender wins ties). 1VP if loser has 1 regular or > 4 units.
Overrun (i.e. continue to move) if kill all w/o own loss and no
fortification.
F.Militia return. Loser retreats. Defender may retreat into fort /
fortress. Attacker must retreat to where it came from. Drilled
troops must retreat to cultivated space or fortification. Must
not retreat to unbesieged enemy unit or fortification. Units
which can’t retreat are killed.
• Assault (attempt to capture fort / fortress). Need siege level 1
/ 2 respectively. No militia, no retreat, no VP (unless
captured), drilled troops die first. If attacker wins, all
defenders killed, fortress captured intact, fort reduced.
Raid:
• Possible to also raid after winning battle.
• 1 militia may always try to defend as battle (unless is raid
after won battle), raiders retreat if don’t win battle.
• Roll for leader death if appropriate.
• All raiders redeploy. Indians go home and may be
accompanied by coureur or leader. Non-Indians go to closest
friendly unbesieged fortification, and leader may bring
Indians.
End:
• British control all fortresses + Niagara + Ohio Forks
• 11VP reached
• After 1759, French has VP as required on VP track
• Otherwise, for scenarios ending 1759: British controls all
originally British fortresses plus 2 of Quebec, Montreal,
Niagara, Ohio Forks. Else whoever with VP wins.
• Otherwise, for scenarios ending 1762, French win if at least
1VP, else British win if at least 5VP.
• Other results = draw.
VP scoring:
• Win battle 1VP if enemy has 1 Regular or > 4 units
• Capture stockade / fort / fortress – 1 / 2 / 3 VP
• Raids ½ VP, total and round up
• Capture of Niagara / Ohio Forks – 1VP
• Destroy own fort – -1VP
Others:
• Only stacking limit is 4 units inside besieged fort.
• Only regulars & coureurs permanently eliminated.
• Indian settlements, leaders, fort under construction do not
hinder movement.
• British side, only Johnson can command Iroquois & Mohawk.
• For French to prevent Amphibious Landing using Foul
Weather, it must be played after British card play for
activation and before play of Amphibious Landing.
• Originally enemy fortress needs to be garrisoned or have
Amphib marker to maintain control.
• Besieged units cannot heal or be reinforced.
• Besieged British Provincial units may not be selected for
removal due to British Colonial Politics card.
Warning for first play:
• Beware Small Pox card heavily injures a crowded space.
• Beware Massacre card kills all Indians when attacker
captures a fort / fortress.
