Hey Guys,

When playing competitively and using the OOB set up, what bid/bid range do people believe the Allies need to balance this game?

Alternatively was there a set up variant which balanced the game where no bid was used?

Thanks heaps, hoping to brush the dust off this version as it is one of my favourites.

A bid of 24 to 25 VPs required for Japan to win usually results in a balanced game.  Blind bidding with a tie resolved randomly works well.

There is no "balanced" setup variant that I'm aware of, but it's important to use the modified setup from the FAQ.

Thanks mate.

I think the set up from the FAQ was what I was thinking of. After posting I also found Saburo Sakai's recommendation of using the OOB set up, 24 VPs for Japanese Victory and giving the Allies an extra 12-16 IPCs to spend on turn one.

My group hasn't had many plays of this version and to keep it in rotation keeping it as balanced as possible is a priority.
