After the allies have played a couple of games they should be smart enough to not lose England and India early.  Or if they do lose England they will have made Germany pay so many points to get it that in my view it is probably not worth it considering US will get it back and Russia will get huge. 

They can do the Italy Navy raid and still build 9 inf in England.  That puts Italy in a bad position in Africa.  That being said my friend and I have had a gentlemen's agreement to not do the Italy Navy raid because by not doing it we have had more competitive games. 

After one game of losing those 18 Russian Inf early an allied opponent will never do that again.  They will fall back when neccesary and move forward when the oppurtunity presents itself.

I agree with building Japans Major Factory far away such as Malayia but that takes time assuming you are keeping US out of the war as long as possible.

In my view this game favors the allies but I am playing the axis and working on trying to figure a way out to win this thing.

Has anyone tried going hard after Russia with all 3 axis powers? Germany could stall Britain using available subs and air and take the +5 bonus away from Russia. They could do the Romania factory and take Leningrad on turn 3 followed by Stalingrad on turn 4 or 5. Meanwhile, Japan could push into Siberia, building an air base in Manchuria and eliminating the infantry stack on turn 2. They could use their navy to force America into the Pacific while pressing towards Moscow through both Russia and China. By the time America could make landings in Europe, Russia would be penned in and unable to pose a threat, allowing Germany to focus on defending itself with a fairly large economy. If America goes after Japan, Moscow falls earlier.
