had my first game of 42, was the axis. Did the Bomber buy 1st round, scared the UK with the new sub rules as the baltic fleet moved into the Atlantic. Scared the US away till turn 3 from landing in Africa and was able to combine on turn 2. Pulled back Japan’s navy, killed the Indian fleet, then turned back on the US Fleet. On turn 4 I was able to destroy both US fleets in the Pacific and Atlantic and took Australia. A few Allied troops in Africa and had left India’s IC alone except for buffering around it. Turned on Russia through China and after suckering the allies into throwing everything at Caucaus after i left most of the German army out to dry there, 2 Jap tanks were able to blitz from Sinkiang to take Moscow. Allies gave up as the Axis ruled all but the North Sea. Not too wacky of dice, save the loss of my German SBR bombers over Moscow.
I haven’t played AA50 much, but I am lovin’ the naval rules applied here!
gotta admit too that those new Russian ship sculpts are absolutely beautiful…sitting in the box never being used.
