Purpose[edit]

This page is especially for players that like a tight historical game and timeline. It lists the powers (excluding puppets and liberated states) that can be recruited by each faction while maintaining a strong historical game with conditions as necessary to keep it on track.

The free for all alternative is a lot easier to play and offers more strategic options.
