Just a few thoughts. 'What if" the Japanese attacked only the Brits the first turn? This might have happened , and can wait for up to 3 turns to attack the USA. ( Kind of like the house rules we use in regualr A&A) 'Surprise' on 2 islands, the Japanese can super fortify. So it looks like they have ...

Thank You.

Another Question, If I have 6 German subs, and attacked by 1 British destroyer, and 5 planes. He gets 4 hits, I lose 4 subs, but he can only lose his 1 destroyer. I think that's correct?

I love this game.

I'll ad a 'rule' my son and I use. ( We just has a 3 player game, I lose 95% of the time!!!)

If Germany doesn't attack Russia, Russia cannot attack Germany. The Germans can do this for up tio 3 turns. It's a house rule we used for a long time.

Well, I've found that if you use your Transport in the Danish Sea to take two Artillery from Germany to land in Leningrad, and maybe a fighter for support (thought this isn't always necessary) you can usually take Leningrad. This has little military value, but it's one more thing for the Russian to...

Back in the mid 80s, I just started playing A&A.We had a wargame group, and I was the newbie, so I got Britain. I'm a conservative player, and all I did was stick to my island, build ships and strategic bomb. My allies were getting overrun, and getting upset at me doing 'nothing'. I was really new ...
