So here I am, a less experienced player, but very familiar with history. I see all this talk of house rules, and I must ask. Does one side benefit more with NO house rules? I accept as a given that that the IJ forces in Manchuria shouldn't be able to waltz off in to China without paying admin costs. I'm just getting to restart as IJ in a game where opponent found a restart more viable than continuation. (his first game, hats off, Kelly!). I have asked him to allow PDU on this time, but also have imposed 'no IJ bombing of China industry till 1944'. I did bomb last time, but I didn't gang it up, and really have no idea of the overall effect outside of realizing the Chinese must have no hope of repairing any of that damage early on.
So given the general house rules I see around, are they driven by game balance or some desire for a more 'historical' play through? Who thinks what?
Down like a CLOWN!
