Essentially, these must be taken by the first player by the turn stipulated for the points to count. If not captured by that time then they aren't include in the victory total.
These are perfect for getting an attacker to go somewhere that hindsight suggests they shouldn't and is a way to force them to go out in harms way.
This will be especially useful in a game like Kharkov '43 where you want the Russians to try and go towards the Dnepr River, yet there is absolutely no motivation as they no they will get creamed.
These terminating VP's can possibly be games (rush a fast unit out and then back) but that can be countered and both sides will have some idea what is going on.
The variable VP's in Panzer Battles is the ultimate solution, due to flexibility, but I don't expect that any time soon.
Kharkov 43 treatment could be great for some scenarios. It's a good idea to consider for future updates and mods.
