In playing this game, I often find myself looking up the Strategy Guide to figure out when I should expect a given Decision Event will pop up on my screen. I have often wished that these Events were presented in the Guide in chronological order. So, to complement the other two crib sheets posted in previous threads (on national morale events and mobilization events) please find below two new crib sheets, mapped against the turns of the game, all the Decision Events that each side can expect to see over the course of the Call to Arms campaign.

I have listed under each game turn the Decision Events that could fire for that side on that turn; and then at the bottom, the other Events for that side that have flexible start dates (e.g. depending on when a Major reaches 100% mobilization). NB: most of these events have other specific trigger conditions that determine if they will fire, so they may not fire on that turn, or they may not fire at all during game. I have not tried to list all the trigger conditions - look at the Strategy Guide or better still, the event scripts in the Game Editor, for a precise read out of how each event works. I have listed the cost in MPPs of accepting the DE and the number of turns - so 2 X 50 means 50 MPPs per turn for 2 turns.

Decision Events that fire at the beginning of a player's turn have their DE number given in regular font; those that will fire at the end of a player's turn have their DE number in bold. I have also included a couple of dummy Decision Events that occur at the beginning of the campaign and which generate notifications for players without giving them any choice to accept or not. These are listed with their DE number in italics. (Note that there are many more dummy Decision Events that are used to make the game work and that do not offer players a choice - you can see them all by reading the event scripts in the Game Editor).

I hope players will find these sheets helpful in learning the game.

Michael
