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.

Special Rules

  • All Chinese and Middle East territories are worth 3 each
  • Germany is worth 6
  • All unused territories are neutral and worth 0

  • USA has super subs and long-range aircraft
  • Russia has super subs and long-range aircraft
  • China has industrial production
  • Middle East and Europe have no extra technology
  • Russia, US and Europe have nuclear capability
  • AA guns are now used as nuclear launchers. They cost 30 IPC. The only ones in existance at the beginning are in Cuba and Turkey. Launchers have a range of 3. Nukes cost 20 IPC's (Russia and USA start with 1 each). Nukes can also be carried and dropped by bombers (bomber must land in a friendly territory and may not be used in any other manner

Nukes automatically destroy 5 units in a territory and permanently reduce the worth 5 IPC's (Note: Defender must lose at least 1 air unit and 1 armor if they have them)

  • Bombers can also be used as air transports (1 infantry only). If they are used to transport, they may not be involved in battle (they can take hits though)
  • Subs can go through the polar passage

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.
