Re: Alpha +3

Here's a link to the game, it's pretty interesting. http://www.axisandallies.org/forums/index.php?topic=24747.0 I've been peeking in occasionally. I'm more interested in Gargantua's game since we have closer play styles and that's going pretty much as I expected. I like the Aleutian naval base in t...

Re: Alpha +3

Put Italy ahead of UK in turn order??? Are you kidding me? I'm not kidding in the least when I recommend this. The UK opening hostilities in the Med has felt wrong from the beginning. A deployment rearrangement that allowed Italy to go first but makes a first turn attack on Egypt suicide would be m...

Re: Alpha +3

It was very basic tactics for germany to overwhelm the Russians and force them into Moscow. It would appear that any german ipc's spent in the Med or the Atlantic after G1 is just foolish. Get Army Group Center to Bryansk, thats all that really matters. It does not matter if Italy gets punished. Ar...

Re: Alpha +3

In all the games I've played, the UK manages to reach Persia quite easily (1 inf in West India means Persia activated by turn 2), and then UK usually kills out Iraq with planes from India/med and maybe with some more troops from South Africa (2 inf, for example). Much better is taking Iraq UK1. And...

Re: Alpha +3

I know, let's argue about the purpose of this thread. Get all meta up in here. I don't think we need a lot of blow by blow reports over multiple posts though. If you got something to say, sum it up in one post please. My reports: Italian navy crushed. And again, and once more for good measure. A3 se...

Re: Questioneer's Alpha+3 Game Reports

How exactly did you come to the conclusion that the Med changes are good for Italy? I think I showed that on very average dice, Italy will get smoked. It was going to be a bloodbath if we played that out. UK was able to buy 3 subs turn two for the Med after toasting the entire Italian navy. It was o...
