Day 1 saw the creation of several alliances. Germany allied with Austria and Britain, Austria allied with Turkey and Italy. France created a soft alliance with Britain, and Russia did not really try at all to make friends. Austria, Germany, Turkey and Britain agreed to attack Russia.

Italy expanded into Northern Africa, capturing Tunisia, while France expanded into the Iberian Peninsula. Germany expanded into the Netherlands and Denmark, while Russia took control of Scandinavia. Germany agreed to allow Britain to take control of Belgium. Austria moved into Serbia and Greece, while Turkey took control of Romania and Bulgaria.

War began early this game, with Turkey following through with their plan and moving into Sevastopol. Both Germany and Austria prepared to move into Warsaw, while Britain took their time moving in to help. In addition, Italy quickly requested German assistance in an invasion of France, which Germany agreed to. Germany captured Burgundy, while Italy captured Marseilles.

Day 2

Day 2… was extremely confusing. Austria warned Germany that Turkey was planning to invade the fatherland after war with Russia, but that Austria would not choose a side because the two countries were his “blood brothers.” Germany and Austria had agreed that they would next invade Italy. France continued to try and get allies, sending a special delegation to request German help to invade Britain, which was ignored.

The eastern front began with the destruction of Russia. The Russian leadership fled, leaving individual armies to defend themselves. This made it easy for the coordinated armies of Germany to take control of Scandinavia, and the combined armies of Austria and Turkey to take control of the rest of the country. Turkey received the most of the country (Sevastopol & Moscow), with Austria receiving Warsaw and Britain receiving St. Petersburg.

On the western front,  Germany pressed their attack, making pushing into Paris. Italy intended to assist in an attack on Gascony, but because of a premature attack by Austria on the undefended Italy, they were forced to leave the battle. Germany was now alone in a war that they didn’t intend to enter. However, they continued to push into France with their single unit. They eventually drove them out of the homeland, but they convoyed into the undefended Britain. Due to mistakes by the British admiralty under Admiral Rabinovich, who refused to take troops out of Russia to defend the British isles, the French managed to capture a majority of the country. The German Emperor became highly frustrated, and told the British that he would clear out the French menace. The British convoyed a German company over to assist.

Because the Austrian troops were preoccupied in Italy, Turkey took advantage and drove the troops intended for Germany into Austria. This was despite warnings by the Emperor Meyer. But the combined German and Austrian alliance drove the invaders out of the northern territories. However, Italy attempted futilely to move into German land in Munich.
