|England||F London, A Liverpool|
2. Home SCs
Per usual for each of the seven standard powers
Player 1 = Russia and Italy
Player 2 = Germany and Turkey
Player 3 = France and Austria
Player 4 = England
4. Victory conditions
18 SCs by ONE country ONLY (so if you're playing France and Austria ONLY one of these countries can win - with 18 SCs).
This variant played out very nicely. Interestingly, we noticed that if 2 players left the room to "negotiate" it invariable left the other 2 players at the map to do their own talking! This had an effect on the shift of alliances (after all why WERE those other 2 guys in another room?!).
