Re: Alpha +3

And for the record, the BEST part of Alpha 3 are the AA Gun rules! Finally, they are a real unit with a real purpose. They cannot possibly each shoot down 5 strategic bombers anymore, they are not tied down to being in your capitol only lest you risk utter ruin, they can be brought up, they can be ...

Re: Alpha +3

The point of all this is, if Japan is putting 64-80 IPC worth of Carriers in the water, what are they using to take China, India and/or Russia? They only EARN 60-80 IPC at their height! The allies, in contrast have 100 IPC and nothing better to do than put boats in the water. (I like a 3rd transpor...

Re: Alpha +3

She is right. Remember Japan is fighting: 12+10+20+70 IPCs (112 plus the Russians if they want to annoy) Good luck matching 112 IPCs per turn! If Japan is facing that kind of income then they have already screwed up. I am not sure how you guys are playing but... If everyone is buying carriers to fi...

Re: Alpha +3

Pummel Japan: 1) England can't go work on the Middle East, it has to go for the DEI 2) Australia wants to save 2 IPC from Round 1, to have an AC on Round 2 3) America wants 1 AC + smaller ships each round 4) China needs to pull up to Kansu 5) Russia needs to drop infantry into Kansu (and a few armo...

Re: Alpha +3

Back to pummelling the Japanese and grinding them into dust with the INSANELY powerful American economy. Funny, I have never had any USA player able to grind me with an insanely powerful economy as Japan. Probably has something to do with my economy being just as powerful, and then often even more ...

Re: Alpha +3

Jen, in fairness I do think that some of those issues you're having are specific to you. I have to agree here. I certainly have not had these kinds of problems. I agree that the games often favour the allies, but not the extent of needing a bid of 20. I think you only need 20 to play the way you wa...

Re: Alpha +3

Here is a thought, if the taking of Ireland by the Russians is ridiculous (which I agree) Just house rule it and/or don't do it. That is what we do. Having territories in Europe is one thing and makes sense but Ireland is ridiculous. If Russia takes Finland and Norway then you need to work on your G...
