Hi there,
a fellow spanish guy and me are trying our first game of TSCW and we are enjoying the game quite a bit. I do find the changes during the first years to be very interesting.
BTW we are playing with the standard rules, not the living rules.
But as we are starting 1938 we were wondering how the nationalist could possibly win. The north has fallen and the republican still has 60/72 morale points. To lower these to the required 30 points the nationalist player would have to conquer the whole map.
I´m not saying that the nationalist player has played very well but besides of the lack of time he still would have to conquer the whole map to get the requiered -42 morale points. (without events, of course)
Is that intended or are we playing something wrong? Is there e.g. a morale loss after battles that I´m not reading in the rules?
I hope you can clarity things for me, we would really like to continue this game with an interesting late game.

You are playing correctly, the Nationalists have to conquer the map to win, evening holding out in Barcelona will be enough to defeat them. Like the Germans in Fortress Berlin the Republicans are not expected to survive the game, so must do better than they did in history to win. The Nationalists must therefore equal or better their historical victory.

I recall reading a suggestion of somebody pointing out that starting the game with republican moral level say at 65 could balance a bit more.
I wonder if anybody has ever tried this and worked fine?
