Explain that the creator of A and A made it, and therefore the original is officially obsolete.

Fight harder and develop nukes... Actually, I like Alpha+2, makes it more of a challenge.

i have won the two last games playing as axis. exploit the errors made by the allies. i find alpha+2 more balanced and more of a challenge... i too was not too keen, but alpha +2 have made me chance my mind. convince ur buddies to atleast try it.

Use the Japan crush of India coupled with a couple house rules:

1 - You cannot build industrial complexes, PERIOD in Africa or Europe. (Lets you build in the Pacific.  Ends the risk of 40 American Strat bombers in Norway crushing everything at will.)
2 - Germany gets 9 IPC to spend as they see fit before the start of the game; Italy gets 6 IPC. (Let them talk you down to 6 for Germany, 3 for Italy.)

That should evenup the odds a bit.
