When my friends and I play Axis & Allies 1942 we have trouble distinguishing a couple borders along seazone 3, pictured below. In each case you can see a little sliver of land that is barely touching seazone 3, one in the UK and the other in Karelia. However, the other seazone-territory borders are pretty clearly indicated, so do we assume UK and Karelia are not intended to border seazone 3 because they are not as clear as others? UKKarelia

As per the official FAQ here

Q: Does Sea Zone 3 connect to the United Kingdom?
A: Yes,

If my memory serves correctly, that is Scapa Flow.

  • Thanks for the reference. Based on the ruling about sea zone 17 and Algeria in that FAQ, which is a similar situation to sea zone 3 and Karelia, I'm going to go with no intended connection on that side.

  • Good answer. Don’t you think that’s kind of ridiculous? I love the game, but there are many flaws with the 1942 SE map. The worst of which is how small some of the territories are.

I know that sea zone 14 does not connect to balkans (Saw that on the official site) and what you show here is kind of the same thing so i wouldnt consider them as connecting. So i would say no it dosnt connect
