Re: Alpha+.2

Moving the repair facilities phase is A GREAT IDEA! Makes it more a strategic choice. I would love to see this installed.

Edit: I would just have the repair take effect in the place units phase.

Re: Alpha+.2

I play almost all my games FTF and follow the Alpha set ups. PBEM folks usually get more games in quicker. If gametable had this online oh boy.

Re: ALPHA +.2 THEORY CRAFTING THREAD

Marines...... any ideas how to quantify on a divisional+ level their inceased combat effectiveness.

I would love an example of a Marine division landing on a beach at Normandy and just kicking butt while an army unit a mile away was getting its butt handed to it.

Re: UK Development

Letting a UK player spend the money wherever is a boost for the allies.

I might use this in my next game if I feel the Allies need a boost. Another good idea for a house rule. This is equal to making the french roll to determine if they go vichy, axis or pro axis as a boost to the axis

Re: Ignoring China

I usually hit China hard in the beginning then when I finally get to war with others back out. My current game has the Russians driving through China to liberate the two victory cities but oops, not in time to get them before I capture Sydney and Hawaii

Re: Russian Front

First with my on game experience. Even with the 12/29 germany is not hopelessly at a dusadvantage in Russia but it does need a Japanese threat or good fortune to win the three cities outright. My German forces moved all around Russia once again trying to trap the infantry atacks in kill zones. Usual...

Re: Alpha+.1

In response to the remarks about a quicker game. I think the 1940 set up in inherently a long game and I like it. A winter 1942 set up which cuts off the first four turns would be interesting for ease of play with larger groups but a different game when Larry feels like dedicating a month of his lif...

Re: Alpha+.1

Think its G5 now in our latest game. One with 12/29 rules. My Germany and Italy got hit pretty hard by bad dice in the water. Since I wasnt planning Sealion it hasnt done anything YET to Germany. Italy has gotten into the 20s for income but isnt a real military force. Japan has neutered India by tak...
