CP#34 Bulgaria Declares War
Originally BULGARIA. This card may not be played as an event if Miskolcz or Cluj are in AP hands – meaning the Russians have broken through the Carpathians passes into the Hungarians plains. This would be an ill presage for the Austro-Hungarian empire’s chances of survival and thus for the conquest ambitions of Bulgaria, and likely to maintain this country in a prudent attitude of neutrality.
Neutral Entry Event Cards may only be played ONCE for OPs, RPs or SR. If a Neutral Entry Card is played a second time it must be played as an Event. This restriction aims at preventing the AP player from capitalizing on the non-commitment of his Romanian and Italian Allies, and was extended to all Neutral Entries for homogeneity. If the card cannot be played as an event and has already been played once for Ops, REPs or SR, it cannot be played at all, but may be discarded at the end of the turn.
