Empire deja vu ...
The game is duplicate Pax Britannica using the improved 1993
(Costikyan - Sacks) rules. Significant changes involve Codominion
value reduction, Chinese Resentment, VP divisors (Russia and
Italy are 2.5, Belgium is 1.5), Ottoman expansion,
Surrender out of supply, and losing a war by running home. The
rules will be handed out to players who have not received
them and can be obtained in advance from the GM for a SASE. Alternatively,
acomplete set of the revised rules can be found at http://www.costik.com/pbimpro.html.
In addition, a teaching game is scheduled to be run Friday at
9 AM just before this one round tournament takes place.
Since the game is DUPLICATE, the players do NOT roll dice.
All random events have been determined in advance. And
