• I see……makes sense to me.


  • Soviets should focus their attention on the European theatre.

    I couldnt agree more, I have always felt that sending any Soviet units to China was a waste. However for simplfying turn order, having one player as both China and the Soviets would make sense. I personally like the idea of grouping the Soviets with the French, just to give that player something to do as they wait for their showdown with Germany.


  • Score 1 for the outspoken USSR+China team!
    Join the squad, Clyde85


  • Russia wasn’t really a team player and should be played by a separate player.

    Obviously Russia’s main focus will be Germany. She will have to keep an eye on the back door though. If China has a good size stack on your red boarder, and Japan is bearing down on them, it would be in your best interest to help out. Tossing in a couple more inf, a tank (and maybe a ftr to join the flying tiger) on that stack may knock Japan down if they attack, or delay them all together.


  • Agreed Russia should only place a deterrent force in it’s eastern territories, while focusing it’s main effort Europe.

    Your 100% right, but Russia did make moves that would ultimately benefit them. If they would have thought Japan was gunning for them through China, Soviets would have been there. They invaded northern Persia as UK took the rest, to keep the rail lines flowing with aid, as well as protect their own southern boarders and oil. If Germany would have invaded Turkey, I think you would have seen both Russia and England go in. It probably wouldn’t have been a joint venture, but they both had interest to protect in the region.

    It would be kinda cool that if Russia liberates an allied tt, that it just keeps it and collects its income until it leaves though.

    Then we could call the game Axis & Allies & Russia.


  • Sorry to resurrect a thread that had it’s last post nearly two months ago but…
    What if we put Italy and Japan together. It would allow Japan to have a hand in everything
    2 Player: Axis v. Allies
    3 Player: 1. axis 2. Russia/China 3. All others
    4 Player: Japan/Italy 2Germany 3. Russia/China 4. Normal Allies
    5 Player: Japan/Italy 2. Germany 3. Russia/China 4. UK/ANZAC 5.USA/ France
    6 Player: 1-3 axis powers 4-6Allied powers as above
    7 Player: 1-3. Axis 4-6 Major Allies 7. Minor Allies
    8 Player: Seperate anzac
    9 Player: Each for himself

    This way for a game of 2-6 everybody sees both theatres while the game stays mostly historically correct (Italy Japan is a small matter as opposed to Russia+Democracy
