Re: Alpha +3

The German counter is not what it buys on R1, but what it buys on R3. But the counter definitely weakens the position relative to Russia and there certainly is a tipping point where you either can or can't push Russia out of Europe and finding that line is the key. The other fine balancing point is...

Re: Alpha +3

What has everyone confused here is that some people have conflated a "successful sea lion" (i.e. taking London), which may be inevitable, with the axis inevitably winning the game. Not all of the things the allies can do AFTER the loss of London have been exhaustively tested. Great point and one th...

Re: Alpha +3

TheOne, I haven't read hardly anything that you or Jen has written. Who can when you two are generating 10 pages a day? Anyways, from the little bit I have read you caused Jen to change her opening move because (apparently?) there was something the UK could do to counter it. Take that act as an admi...

Re: Alpha +3

I have played a game as the allies against a German sea lion, and I have been tinkering with various strategies, and I believe I can say that if Germany takes London, you have a reasonable shot at taking out their navy, and if you can take out their navy, you have good chance at ultimately being ab...

Re: Alpha +3

Regarding Unstoppable Sealion: I am not saying with any certainty that this would give the Allies a victory, but my face-to-face playing partner and I have had some discussions on what the Allies can do to counter Sealion. We have come up with two possibilities that we have never been able to try an...

Re: Alpha +3

Larry, I don't know if you are really "finished" with the Alpha +3 or not. You said something to effect that you were, but then you changed a US NO on 11/17. So, if you are still listening (are you?), I have a different suggestion for the problem that liberating France poses for the Allies. Why don'...
