Re: Alpha+.1

Im wondering, how do people find US economy in global? I'm asking because there is a big difference in what you would think it would get. In Europe only, US makes 35+~30(NO) for 65. In pacific only, US makes 17+~40(NO) for about 55 The total of these funds allocated to one theatre each is about 120....

Re: Alpha+.1

I disagree on "low luck" being an accurate representation for all games. IE: in low luck, Germany can send "just enough" planes and subs into each seazone to "guarantee" clearing them, when in a "full luck" game if Germany does the same, then some zones will have better luck and overkill the defende...

Re: Alpha +1 Setup

Hmm, not sure if making the 2 infantry British is a good idea, as now they go from being just a defensive boon to an offensive one as well.

Re: Alpha +1 Setup

I think it would best make sense to apply the Europe changes from the alpha set up, and just change anything Australian to French. Yes there is an extra 2 inf and fighter for the axis to face, but I think the changes to the Italian Mediterranean set up balances it out, since now Germany can choose t...

Re: USA economy

"Historical accuracy" reasoning for a board game is flawed reasoning. 1st, Game balance>historical accuracy for me anyday.(If we are talking historical accuracies, then Japan would be lucky to be half as powerful as it is in A&A, and never be able to conquer China, let alone India, russia, etc.) 2nd...

Re: USA economy

5-7 turns to take India+3 turns for tanks to reach Moscow = 10ish turns to take Moscow. Considering that Italy is likely already dead by then and Berlin soon to follow and I don't think the allies are too worried. The problem with a 100+IPC America in one theater is that the axis have to worry about...

Re: USA economy

Difference of opinions, I think you overestimate Japan. I doubt they can get all of what you said(especially Africa) before Germany is either conquered or reduced to a turtling non threat. Too much of their initial worth is invested into navy, their comparatively small ground force only allows them ...
