The Japan-USA Trade Agreement (go ahead and use Alaska)
The Venezuela-USA Trade Agreement
Netherlands-Japan Trade Agreement The Netherlands must supply Japan with 2 oil resources a turn.
I would be appreciate if anyone can tell me how (other than the way I have posted it) the USA can use equal or less convoy points to implement this:
WiF FE Rule Clarification Summary
Q5.1-2 For at-start Trade Agreements, must the RP and BPs provided by JA, US, GE, and RU come from their respective home countries?
Harry Rowland's Answer
No, but they must satisfy rule 5. Lending Stage that is they must be delivered if possible.
Example: After Russia has conquered Persia, Russia couldn't give the coastal Persian oil to Germany as part satisfaction of their trade agreement unless there were convoys in position to send them to Germany AND the owner of those transports is allowed, and agrees, to ship them. In all other cases the Russians would instead have to transport the resources by rail from the USSR to Germany directly. Date 07/03/2008
5. If, during production (see 13.6 Production), it is possible for the promised resources (or build points) to be delivered then they must be delivered.
5. Lending Stage
In this stage, you can announce that you are giving resources and/or lend leasing build points (see 13.6.4 Lend lease) to another major power on the same side this turn.
13.5.1Oil (AfA option 48): You must also announce how many of the resources given are oil.
You can only give resources (or build points) if you are an active major power and you can only give them to another active major power (exceptions: 5.1 Trade agreements, 13.3.2 US entry options, and 17.4 Running Vichy France ~ Vichy production ~ lending to Vichy France). Vichy France must also be hostile to lend to other major powers (see 17.4 Running Vichy France).
Some major powers need 13.3.2 US entry options to be chosen before resources can be given to them. The USSR is further restricted in that (apart from Germany ~ see 5.1 Trade agreements) she may only give or receive up to 1 resource (or build point) per turn unless US entry option 19. Resources to USSR (and option 30. Lend lease to USSR for build points) has been chosen.
You cannot give resources to a major power in the same turn as it is giving resources to you. However, you can give resources to a major power in the same turn as another major power gives resources to you. The same restrictions apply to lend leasing build points. You may however give build points to a major power in the same turn you receive resources from that major power or vice versa.
How you transport resources is described later (see 13.6.1Resources and 13.5.1Oil (AfA option 48)).
If, during production (see 13.6 Production), it is possible for the promised resources (or build points) to be delivered then they must be delivered. If you cannot meet the promise you made (for example because the convoy points were not set up, were destroyed, or a railway line cut), you still cannot use them yourself this turn.
5.1 Trade agreements
The USA and Japan start the game with an agreement in place to exchange a Japanese build point for US resources. The USA must supply Japan with 4 resources each turn. Two of them must be oil resources. These amounts can be reduced, or avoided entirely, by certain US entry options (see 13.3.2). Japan must lend lease the USA with 1 build point a turn until the USA embargoes strategic materials (see 13.3.2, entry option 13).
That side does not get its promised resources or build point that turn, and the other side can use those points themselves;
If Japan was in default, the USA may add 2 entry markers to the Japanese entry pool; and
If the USA was in default, Japan must randomly remove 2 entry markers from the Japanese entry pool (returning them to the common entry pool). If there arenít enough markers to remove, the USA can never declare war on Japan and must now start taking markers from the Ge/It pool. If there arenít enough markers there, the USA can never declare war on Germany or Italy.
The USA and Japan stop supplying these resources and build points once they are at war and keep them for themselves on the turn they go to war.
The USA allocates just enough Convoy Points to reach the Japanese Coast sea area with the Oil/Resources.
The USA allocates no Convoy Points to transport the BP from the Japanese Coast sea area to reach the USA.
According to 5. Lending Stage you made a promise (the Trade Agreement) but you didn't honor the Trade Agreement.
The USA must allocate Convoy Points to transport the BP from the Japanese Coast sea area to the USA.
