Re: Strategic Bombing Raids as of 10/10/11

Very nice. The best thing is that these rules are simple. I think I'll have no trouble explaining them even to new players. Just taking out one side firing first is a great improvement. I'll be playtesting this soon.

Re: Alpha +3

for what its worth in most of our games the UK has mustered in sz92 and avoided attacking Italy. UK positioned to strike if Italy left their home port. It was effective. Italy could preserve their fleet for a while, a lot of it depended on how much the germans were willing to invest. Africa and the...

Re: Alpha +3

It's more like confusion than reasoning :lol: I was trying to make the point that Italy, at this late date, going before the UK is too risky and that we've talked about this just recently. I thought you participated in that conversation. To be clear, because I posted this turn order about 15 times ...

Re: Alpha +3

Kobu where have you been? Is that an Italy before the UK I'm seeing? I must have missed it, Larry. What's the reasoning here?

I'm sure he has a reason. I'd like to hear what he's thinking there. Putting Italy between the US and UK would give a better back and forth than what we have now with US/UK Italy/Germany going in blocks.

Re: Alpha +3

Hey Kaufschtick: You might want to read this and try some of it out. New Turn Order Germany Soviet Union Japan UK ANZAC Italy France China US. This definitely brings back the can opener troubles in the Pacific. Larry, what about my proposal: Germany Soviet Union Japan US China Italy UK ANZAC France...

Re: Alpha +3

Larry, I think you should pull the trigger on the UK bomber. How serious is this new Italian turn order? I do like the thought of breaking up the allied megaturn. A LOT of changes to the map to test though. SHould we be brainstorming this, or is it too much. Thread noise is covering this up again. ...
