Civilization II: Game of the Month
Game of the Month 159: September 2014
As mentioned before, this month we are playing a WW2 scenario to commemorate the 75th anniversary of world war 2.
The scenario we are playing is the one that shipped with the game. You should all have it. I tried to enclose it for the sake of completeness but got an error due to unrecognized file type. The problem can likely be revised but it is not worth delaying this posting. If any player lacks the scenario please say so in this thread.
Unlike the previous GOTM, you can play this scenario in the classic as well. Furthermore, this one has no new buildings, or units, or wonders, … There is no learning curve. Still, if you are not familiar with this scenario or generally with scenarios you are allowed to play a few turns aimlessly to get the feel of it.
World War 2 Scenario, 45 turns
Playing as allies at Deity level
The game will start with Axis and then move in the usual order. Typically Axis takes at least Amsterdam and Paris on the first turn and wipes out allied forces on mainland Europe. There is nothing you can do about this. When allies turn comes up you will get a notice that Belfast cannot support all its units and one will get disbanded. This must have been an oversight on the part of the designers. Again you cannot do anything about this.
Gold, silver, and bronze go to players who wipe out Axis fastest or get closest to it (measured in number of Axis objectives left) by the last turn. Green star goes to the player who achieves Axis decisive defeat first (Axis reduced to 6 objectives). Blue star goes to the player with the most objectives at their final turn. In case of a tie in any of the above, the player with more cities wins.
