I appreciate all the optional rules that have been developed since I last played the board game (5th Ed) however I was wondering, what was the list of optional rules that 5th Ed had?

I do not have MWiF yet but when I do I would like to start with what I remember. I remember not using all the options. Just a few. Divisions I think was one and Siberians another.

Later we added PiF which did had some flavour and more options.

Does anyone have the rule book from 5th Ed that they could list what the options were?

Thanks.

I think 5th ed was never printed. Rules where RAW2 + a bunch of Annuals back then. I guestimate you know PiF, SiF, AsA/AfA..

Anyways, I don't know of a comprehensive listing of the evolution of optional rules alone. There is this website from Patrice covering the evolution of WiF components/rules:

https://sites.google.com/site/frenchwifpage/home/world-in-flames-final-edition/rules-erratas

Here is a spreadsheet we use to vote optionals. Has quick explanations for the non obvious ones. It is not MWiF specific:

Perhaps the simplest solution would be for you to read about each optional rule and see if you remember it. After all, even if it were in the 5th edition, if you can't remember the optional rule, does it matter? Something about trees and forest is probably relevant here.
