Axis and Allies - The Original Game Matt Bakers Cuban Missile Crisis Scenario

Introduction

The year is 1962. It's the middle of the Cold War and the US discovers Russians has nuclear launchers in Cuba pointed at America! They approach Russia and Russia demands that the US remove its nuclear launchers in Turkey. What would have happened if Russia didn't remove those launchers? It's up to you to decide... Europe immediately sides with the US. China remains neutral for the first 2 rounds and then joins the USA (Russia may attack China on turn 3). The Middle East remains neutral for the first two rounds but then joins Russia (The US/Europe cannot attack the Middle East until it attacks one of them first). The neutrals can move and build but not attack or share territories with allies until round 3.

Remarks (by thrasher)

The scenario has some ambiguities. Turkey is not assigned an income, but based on the US total it should be 1. Spain is not assigned an income, but based on the UK total it should be 6.
