Sergente Nella Neve,
I actually am using your sheet as a template, I like the way it was designed. I’ve changed a couple things though. And of course I am adding the Europe board spaces.
Let me know if you’d like me to credit you on the sheet itself in any way.
Yes, of course! Thank you!!!
Indeed exactly my point!
This seems to be the axis paradigm.
Axis must choose a theatre where they want to win: Russia, London/Atlantic or the Mediterranean/Africa. I guess attacking the neutrals falls in all 3 theatres at the same time, so if the axis want to go for the neutrals they still must decide which 1 of the three above theatres they want to be winning in.
Axis should realize that against good allied opposition they can win in 1 area but expect to loose in the 2 other areas. Perhaps not immediately, but still inevitable.
For example: after a ‘successfull’ Sea Lion, Russia might not be able to immediately take Berlin, but Germany taking Moscow should be out of the question as well. Which is an allied win already if the USA can either liberate London or neutralise Japan (isolate a must, no need to conquer Tokyo).
Same story in the Pacific.
In short: The axis can win anywhere, but not everywhere (at the same time)!
@Locke888 When I first started playing G40, I created laminated cards for each power. One side features the initial setup (including unit cost, movement and attack/defense values), while the other has that power’s political situation, national objectives/bonus income and the overall order of play. I’d post them here for your use, but I can’t find the files.
I know others have done something similar - check in Customizations. To cover basics, such as the phases of each turn, etc., it’s easy enough to produce your own “cheat sheet” and make several copies for the players to share. I’d also recommend printing out a copy or two of the Europe/Pacific 1940 2nd ed. index I’ve created and attached below, as it will speed up searches when questions arise (as they always do).
