706  Axis & Allies / Axis & Allies Spring 1942 Edition / Re: Subs starting out in a SZ containing a hostile DD on: February 24, 2012, 05:44:58 am
I am guilty of over thinking.   I am not guilty of broadcasting the exact scenario and location I am thinking of.  The sea zones mentioned in this fictitious scenario are irrelevant.   Yes, agreed, in that situation, a DD in SZ51 is all you would need to prevent combat from occurring in Sz60 via surface ships located in Sz45.  And as long as I had surface warships in Sz60 no subs could enter Sz60 during non-combat.  If I wanted NO subs to reach an unoccupied Sz60 then I would require another DD in Sz45.  This would only make sense if surface warships in Sz60 could be taken out during combat via air units thus allowing a non-combat move of a stack of subs into Sz60.  But again, this is not where my situation is occurring, thanks for the input, I appreciate it.

Ummm, if you want to make your pictures available, then other people would have to download the file no?  If you are talking about making your picture show up in a text box that you type in and people then read....it ain't gonna happen.

If you want others to see a picture file, then you attach it so others can download it.  Or we could concentrate really really hard and wish it to happen by pure force of will if that works for you.....

The difference with SBRs is that you are attacking future production versus pieces already on the board ready to do something.

You shouldn't be doing SBRs because your bombers only face a 1 each when attacking  an IC with an AA versus attacking land pieces unsupported by ground troops.  You do an SBR when there is really nothing for your bombers to do and they are not taken out of position by doing the SBR, and potential losses won't dramatically affect your next move.  If you really really need both bombers for next rounds attack on a navy that is threatening you, then maybe you don't risk losing a bomber in an SBR due to the fact it will prevent the planned next round attack on the said navy.

Kurt, you don't seem to understand how genetic information is passed.  By your analogy, if diversity decreases by inter-racial breeding, then inbreeding would increase diversity?  Has that worked for your family?

It is interesting.   It seems hard for the axis to make much more progress.  I was playing cautious at first to ensure the ground game would ensure me a greater income and setup for a war of attrition had you gone that way.  I was afraid you would build another IC in the Pacific and do hit and runs along the Asian coast to leverage your 6 battleships.

Yeah I thought that would be too easy.  I see it explained on page 12, I was looking under subs and destroyers.

I can see a subtle effect.  Placing a DD on the stack of subs and also a blocking sub in the Sz next to the stack means the subs can't move past the second blocking DD, they can either retreat, or advance 1 SZ and attack the other blocking DD but could not advance further in non-combat as they all did something during the combat movement phase.  A huge stack of US subs in Sz45 could be prevented from reaching Sz60 during non combat with a hostile DD in Sz45 and a second in Sz51. 
715  Axis & Allies / Axis & Allies Spring 1942 Edition / Subs starting out in a SZ containing a hostile DD on: February 23, 2012, 01:42:03 pm
Say I non-combat move a destroyer into a sea zone containing a stack of hostile subs, but only subs. 

Would the entire stack of subs be forced to attack my destroyer and be pinned there? 

If not all had to attack then could some of the subs not attacking move out of the sea zone to enter into combat in other sea zones or remain not doing any combat and then non-combat moving out of the SZ?

My view of race is that the world is better off maintaining the existence of the different races, than it would be by mixing all races together into one globalized race.

Why is that?   I am all for keeping cultures unique.  I don't want to move to India nor China, nor would I want 3% of their population to enter Canada all at once and duplicate their culture here and overwhelming ours.  But I could care less what the average physical features of a Canadian is 100 years from now, as long as they are totally cool and awesome like we are now.

If anything, increasing genetic diversity is good for the species and individual.  Maintaining cultural islands is also desirable.
717  Axis & Allies / Axis & Allies Global 1940 / Re: Do all submarines have to submerge or does each submarine decide independantly? on: February 23, 2012, 09:54:32 am
Well, I really don't like the wording of it in the rule-book, it's not as unambiguous as I like, but again, computer programmers are an anal bunch.  I am surprised the voting was as one sided as it was but I can see it either way, that's the problem for me.  The rules should not have to be submitted to an linguistics expert, it would be great to see an explicit mention of a partial sub fleet submergence while the rest carry on first shot attacking or defending.  I will sleep at night just fine until that ever occurs however!

I'm by Niagara Falls so it's only a couple of hours drive.  I'll be there.   I'll see if I can't drag some of the other local AA players, but some of us are getting old and too domesticated!

All the local colleges and universities should be notified.  Pretty much every computer science department has a board games club or night.

The US cut the oil supply to Japan, 6 months later Japan Attacked the US in order to grab oil in the Dutch East Indies.

Seems complicated to me, just go for what you need, the raw materials.  If the US goes to war, then its their choice, fight the battle on the US home front like it was in Vietnam.  The US probably wouldn't have entered into a war of choice against Japan until 1943, by then Japan's attacks should mostly be done and they could concentrate on a proper defense until the US accepts the status quo.

Kurt, my problem with your reasoning is one of premises that you use for a basis for a 'logical argument' in terms of logic and rhetoric is the food issue. 

Succinctly, I see your point as:

The allies didn't help feed the German war machine food so therefore the Nazis were justified in starving millions of Jews and others because they were left with no choice by the bad allies.

I will leave out the copious amounts of hand waving and sophistry.
