Global 1941 Setup (Revised for Alpha +3)

Post by oztea » Fri Oct 28, 2011 7:33 pm

Great Britain stands alone, struggling to hold together its Empire, beset by the European Axis. Victories for the Allies have been few and far between. France has surrendered to Germany and Italy, the Greek campaign has ended in failure, the Royal Air Force has suffered heavy losses as British cities are bombed daily, and the gains made in North Africa are in jeopardy as German reinforcements arrive. Yet worse still, the German Battleship Bismarck and a myriad of U-Boats are marauding the North Atlantic and threatening to starve the United Kingdom of supplies and into submission. But a whole new war is on the horizon as Operation Barbarossa is set to begin in earnest, German forces are poised to cut deep into the Soviet Union. And in the east, the Japanese Empire is poised to launch a series of surprise attacks on the colonies of the West and the forces of the United States, plunging the world into a truly global war. The year is 1941, battles have been fought, but the war has just begun.

Alpha +3 (2nd Edition) Rules are in effect, All National Objectives and special rules.
Politically, the game begins as if it were the THIRD turn. All powers follow any relevant restrictions. (Neutrality, etc)
Germany is at war with France, UK, and ANZAC
Italy is at war with France, UK, and ANZAC
Japan is at war with China and France

Special Rules:
  • (1) Soviet naval units in the Pacific Theater must remain adjacent to original Soviet territory while the Soviet Union is neutral to Japan.
    (2) The Japanese Kamikaze special rule is deactivated when using the 1941 setup.

Wow Oz, how many times have you played through this. When the game we're playing is over I will set this up and get a good look at it.

This is just excellent I like the air power in the Pacific what a war would be brewing there!!

I also enjoyed the fact that the UK has a substantial navy, question can Germany wipe it out as is the case with every other axis and allies set up. That is always something that itched me is that UK navy mostly destroyed.

Looks like a strong axis initiative early on could put USSR completely on the defensive which is good and disable the UK with Italy rolling in the Med, you follow this up with a very aggressive Japan that could tie up USA, they have 10 more planes than the US. It will be hard pressed for the allies to come back and win. I can't wait to set it up and give it a try.


I find one minor thing curious and that is the French inf and art in Quebec. Why?? many great French Canadians and I say Canadians strongly fought with the UK in their CND armies and died as CND's and were buried in CND and UK cemeteries not French. Putting French units in Canada is plain ridiculous. They would be stuck there the entire time or be a defensive force only on UK.

Anyway can't wait to see how this plays out thanks for posting!!

Well, France only has 3 units on the board besides those in Quebec
United Kingdom - 1 Infantry, 1 Fighter
Egypt - 1 Infantry

They also control no territory.
I certainly dont have it out for France, but really see no use for them in 1941.
However, some units in Canada could be transported over to participate in D-Day by a friendly transport.

However, I was toying with the idea of using French pieces to represent Canada itself, but I didnt want to add those rules to the main body of my 1941 setup.
The setup, as is, is bare bones, no special rules, no modifications, just advanced 2 game turns and a new setup.

Here are the Canada rules at the moment however.....in case you are intereseted.
Oh Canada! Special Rules
- Canada takes the place of France in the turn order, going 7th
- Canada controls all the territories with the Canadian Roundel
- The United Kingdom's starting income is changed to 22 IPCs
- Canada has two national objectives:
5 IPCs if there are no German Submarines in sea zones 101 through 124 (excluding 112, 113, 114, 115) Theme: North Atlantic shipping security.
3 IPCs if at least one Allied surface vessel occupies any two of the following sea zones: 107, 108, 117, 118 Theme: Safe convoy transit across North Atlantic.
- In the event France is Liberated, use Chinese Infantry to represent their forces.
- Use French pieces to represent Canada, and make the following changes to the setup:

[Canada] - 7 IPCs
a) Place units for France as normal, these are now Canadian Units
b) Replace the following units with Canadian Pieces
Quebec - 1 Infantry, 1 Tank, 1 Fighter, Minor IC
Ontario - 1 Infantry, 1 Mech Infantry, 1 Artillery
British Colombia - 2 Infantry
SZ 106 - 1 Destroyer, 1 Transport

Thankyou gentlemen. Im holding off on a 42 setup for now. I would really like to see others take on one, or Larry himself.

Also even if you cant play this setup any time soon, please set it up!
Tell me if you spot any glaring errors, historical inacuracies, etc.

The date im going for is around May-October 1941
