I love to play Japan with my friend playing German cause it's demanding and gives more fun. But everytime US and GB play "Shuck Shuck", I feel frustrated. If Germany fortifies Norway and Karelia, providing Karelia is taken by German, then the allies would land on western Europe or northern Africa and ,next, onto sothern Europ. Not enough time for Japan to reach USSR before Germany is fallen or falling by the ����ing Shuck Shuck. Gimme some thips to prevent it.
Why are you defending Norway? To hell with Norway. It is a punk territory with minimal strategic value.
As for killing the shuck shuck:
Assuming: You sank as many allied ships as possible on G1...
Send the Japanese airforce to Europe on Turn 3 or 4. Then hit the fleet in a 1-2 punch with the German and Japan airforces the next turn. Depending on which airforce you want to have some left of determines which Axis airforce strikes first. Ideally you want to hit the fleet when the US has a bunch of infantry in E.Can waiting to come over. Then, all that inf money has to sit idle for 2 whole turns: 1 to rebuild transports, 1 to bring them over.
