This meta-variant can be used to create quick game between 2 players.
- Randomly select 2 nations to be played.
- Randomly select 1 nation to be neutral
- All remaining nations are off-limits.
- Bid IPC's to select a start nation. The high bidder selects the nation, the low bidder receives that amount in starting money.
- The neutral nation only defends. Units with a higher attack than defense use the attack value in combat. You can't collect income from neutral nation areas if it has naval units adjacent.
