Here's a challenge for geeks with too much time. Design fourteen new cards, one each for Axis 1939, Allies 1939, Axis 1940, Allies 1940, etc.

The blank 55th card would represent the 9th card in the deck for each year.

Each card should have close to the average number of Command Points for the year.

The 1939 cards should have the weakest events. E.g.,

1939 Axis: (2 CP) Captured Czech Tanks: + 1 Armor step.
1940 Axis: (3 CP). Raiders: Each Axis BB/BC in an Atlantic zone subtracts 1 British PP.
1941 Axis: (3 CP). Magnetic Mines: -1 British PP per U-Boat adjacent to Britain.
1942 Axis: (4 CP). Far East Emergency: Brits remove ANZAC or any 3 steps of Air, BB or BC.
1943 Axis: (4 CP). Synthetic Fuels: +1 Air, +1 Armor step.
1944 Axis: (3 CP). General Government: 1/2 PP per Minor, 3 PP per Major Capital Axis controlled.
1945 Axis: (3 CP) War Weariness: Allied Production reduced 50% this turn.

1939 Allies: (2 CP)Polish Fighters: -1 F to Ju-87 & He-111 in Poland this turn.

1940 Allies : (3 CP)

1941 USSR: (3 CP) Reserves: +2 free steps to each D1 or C1 Army at a USSR Factory.

1942

1943

1944

1945 Allies: (Blue 5 CP) Allied Atomic Bomb: +2 F for each Heavy Bomber targeting Factories.

We don't want its butterfly wings to skew the course of future turns much. The 1945 cards should have bigger effects.

What about separating out the Soviet cards/events but keeping the totals the same?

You mean design all new Allied cards so that the Soviets and Western Allies each have a 54 card deck? That would be a much bigger project.

No, I'm not. The total number of CMs available per turn doesn't change.
