Hi everybody,

When playing a four-players game how players of a side get Victory Points when keeping or capturing HEXes ?
The rules states "Victory conditions are awarded to the player that moves onto a victory hex first, etc. Players of a side may decide to play the game
for an individual win or as a group win." Does it state claiming Victory to end the firefight or it also includes VP for capturing HEXes?


Example FF13 : 4 players
At the end of the 1st ROUND, the Soviet Commander 1 has killed one german unit during the round and none Objective HEX have been captured
German Commander 1 total: 2VP (+2VP : German forces control 2 HEXes)
German Commander 2 total: 2VP (+2VP : German forces control 2 HEXes)
Soviet Commander 1 total: 1VP (+1VP : for killing one unit)
Soviet Commander 2 total: 0VP

At the end of the 2nd ROUND, the Soviet Commander 1 has captured one Objective HEX
German Commander 1 total: 3VP (+1 VP : German forces control 1 HEX)
German Commander 2 total: 3VP (+1 VP : German forces control 1 HEX)
Soviet Commander 1 total: 2VP (+1 VP : has captured 1 HEX)
Soviet Commander 2 total: 0VP or 1VP ?

At the end of the 3nd ROUND, the German Commander 1 has captured again one Objective HEX
German Commander 1 total: 5VP (+2VP : German control 1 HEX and commander has captured 1 HEX)
German Commander 2 total: 4VP or 5VP (+1 VP : German forces control 1 HEX)
Soviet Commander 1 total: 2VP
Soviet Commander 2 total: 0VP or 1VP ?

Hope my example is clear.

If you're going for an individual win, then each player on the side would only get victory points for objectives that they take, and for units they kill. A player on one side, could, conceivably, even take a victory hex away from their teammate, by moving onto it.

I always play just grouping the points though, so it's just one set of points per side instead of 2.

I used to count Victory Points the wrong way : each player has it own set, VP for killing were individual whereas VP for controlling HEXes were shared. At the end of the game both players total VP were added.

How VP are awarded to the defense side when controlling HEXes when running for individual win ?
