Playtesting a few hours. What puzzles me is the defense of Morocco. Not allowed(rule 9.253) to reinforce Vichy -Morocco it is too easy for Britain to invade in 1941 and steamrolling east to Egypt. Will a strong Axis force in Libya be enough to kill an invading plan?
If not - the result will be that Italy is invaded too early (historic). And the game misses the US Operation Torch hard battles.

By the way - Can Gibraltar be attacked using similar rules as Malta or must Spain-Andalucia be controlled by Axis first?

Finally - Rick, Jesse & Co has done a marvellous job! Thank you for the game.

Axis units are allowed in Vichy territory after war has been declared against Vichy (rule 9.523) and The Western Allies are not allowed to declare war on Vichy before Jul/Aug 1942 (rule 9.31)

Will a strong Axis force in Libya be enough to kill an invading plan?

Only if the Allies are careless

If not - the result will be that Italy is invaded too early (historic). And the game misses the US Operation Torch hard battles.

I think you overlooked the restriction of war against Vichy before Jul/Aug 1942 (9.31)

By the way - Can Gibraltar be attacked using similar rules as Malta or must Spain-Andalucia be controlled by Axis first?

The only ways to get to Gibraltar are through Spain or via Airborne assault from Morocco.

Finally - Rick, Jesse & Co has done a marvellous job! Thank you for the game.

Thank you for your kind words - The enjoyment other gamers are getting out of EE has made all the work well worthwhile.

Rick Young (#32801),

You are right - I overlooked rule 9.31, and my Morocco consern has now disappeared!

Thank you for a quick response, Easter weekend
