AP#43 US 1st Army, 1 Corps

http://www.banquetdesgeneraux.com/banquet/AP43k.jpgIt is widely accepted that in PoG, AP failure to bring the American contingent to France (thus recycling the juicy cards for other purposes) is definitely not penalizing enough, if at all. In order to add an incentive for the AP to go through the chain of events leading to the commitment of the US forces, I included the VP bonus –in my opinion, an appropriate reward for the collapse of the German High Command confidence in final victory, facing the ever-increasing flow of American troops pouring onto the continent. To maintain the VP balance, this VP was merely transferred from the Convoy event.

In addition, note that, if at the end of the game, the Allied player has not conducted at least one attack with a US army, he will incur a 1 VP penalty as per variant 5.5.3 VP adjustments.
