    Brain, you are a mental case! Oh I forgot, you have been damaged.@Brain:

    I have a better solution:

    Player 1 - Axis
    Player 2 - Allies

    What do you think? Axis and Allies. Has a familiar ring to it. Kind of catchy, huh?

    I guess it must be a good thing. We all like to play these war games so we must all be mental cases!@Brain:

  • Well let me be the first to say that I do not play any war games, have never played any war games, and do not plan on playing a war game of any kind at any point in the future.

    I can’t believe that or you wouldn’t be here.

    Anyway pairings should be easier to determine once the turn order has been established.



  • I thought it had?  For the global game at least, which is what I started the discussion about…

    I haven’t seen anything official on the turn order for the global game.



  • It has been confirmed on Larry Harris’ site. It is:

    1 Germany
    2 USSR
    3 Japan
    4 UK
    5 ANZAC
    6 Italy
    7 US
    8 China
    9 France

    Edit: Corrected US/China reversal.



  • @Make_It_Round:

    It has been confirmed on Larry Harris’ site. It is as we saw earlier in this thread:
    1 Germany 2 USSR 3 Japan 4 UK 5 ANZAC 6 Italy 7 China 8 USA 9 France

    I checked Larry’s site and could not find it:

    Can you please provide a link?







  • So UK gets anzac…obviously
    US gets China…semi-obviously
    Russia “could” roll for france, the 3 turns that it exists that is…just to give that player something to do while he is neutral

    Well, that would be the traditional “obvious” way, but that’s the entire point of this thread: there are other ways to split it and what would be the pros and cons of splitting it differently?



  • 4 Player Game

    Japan
    Germany - Italy

    US - USSR - China
    UK - France - ANZAC



  • If I ever play more than a two-player game (which sounds like a ton of fun but the first and last time i did it we only finished one turn and then everyone got distracted and it dissolved. It being one players first time did not help either.) then i will group it like this assuming six players…

    Player 1- Germany
    Player 2- Italy
    Player 3- Japan
    Player 4- U.S. and China
    Player 5- Russia
    Player 6- U.K., Anzac, France, and Canada (with whatever individualness it has or does not have)

    I will do this for playability and historical accuracy. Each player will receive a power to play that will have plenty to do but not too much (Italy might be the weakest but there always fun to play and they will definitely help out with Germany who will have the most to do). Also, it makes sense (at least to me) when you think about influence. the U.K. was very closely tied with Canada and Anzac, and with France also (they were the first to declare war together against Germany). They may seem like they have a lot of countries, but the U.K. quickly becomes very weak (I find) if Germany begins to win. The U.S. gets China because (they always have) and although I suppose you could make a claim for Russia, it just makes more sense this way since the U.S. player will be far more bored (if you ever get bored playing a and a) than the Russian player who will be trying to frantically set up his defenses against the upcoming onslaught. Thoughts?



  • Here is my vote:

    2 player game 1. Axis  2. Allies
    3 player game 1. Axis  2. UK,ANZAC,France  3.USA,China,USSR

  • My Original Thoughts
    1 Player game: I’m the only person who is a big enough loser
    2 Player game: Allies v. Axis
    3 Player Game: Axis, Eastern Ally, Western Allies
    4 Player Game: European Axis, Japan, Russia, Western Allies
    5 Player Game: European Axis, Russia, Japan, US/China, UK/ANZAC/France
    6 Player Game: Germany, Italy, Russia, Japan, US/China, UK/ANZAC/France
    7 Player Game: Germany, Italy, Russia, Japan, US/China, UK, ANZAC/France
    8 Player Game: Germany, Italy, Russia, Japan, US, China/France, UK, ANZAC
    9 Player Game: Each for himself

    This way is most historical
    Now I’m with the “7th player gets all minors” Theory, however. I do also think still, that for 8 ANZAC goes free



  • @Croesus:

    1 Player game: I’m the only person who is a big enough loser

    This is where I have the biggest disagreement with your thoughts.



  • silly rabbit. more people makes it more fun! plus your powergroupings sounds pretty fair

    Which countries are you including in your Eastern and Western Allies?



  • Eastern allies-Russia, China (as seen here, http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:World_War_II_1940_06.png the chinese had no western components until december 1941

    Western- All else



  • @Croesus:

    I disagree with your pairings for the 3 player game. One player gets Russia and China, and the second player gets USA, France, UK, and ANZAC. That pairing seems odd and imbalanced.



  • I think France will be with the ussr because Russia can’t attack till turn four if I’m not mistaken. Everything else would be the same as Anniversary with Anzac with Britian.
