This came up yesterday. Since Sweden begin with 40 points, and loses 4 per territory lost, meaning losing the game when Finland and the Baltic provinces are lost (10 provinces = 40 points). This means losing the game historically in 1714. Is this really correct or should one ignore this in the grand campaign?

I don't see how you could possibly lose all of finnland within only 4 years as Sweden.
Don't see, how you could possibly lose all of finnland at all in this game?!

I believe the storyboard has Russia taking only the coastal provinces of Finland, so Sweden is still in the fight (it doesn't look good).

I've toyed with a variant (perhaps an article for C3i magazine) which would have the RP level tied more to the forage values of territories, this would make Finland less of a vulnerability to Sweden. It's just an idea at this stage, and it won't be an official rule change.
