I’ve played several AAr games with friends over the past couple of years but never finished one. The other night, one of my friends decided he’s be find with donating table space for a while to keep a game going. So last night we started the game. 2 players had play original before, and 2 had little to no experience. So after 4 hours, we only made it through R2. I’m the only one with experience with this board, but I did not want to be the guy who ordered his team around and suck all the fun.
So basically, I think we’ve (Allies) have made a few mistakes, and I was wondering if you all could give me some suggestions to pass on.
Russia: Friends Wife w/ no experience
UK: Friend w/ limited experience
US: Me (my least favorite)

Our overall strategy is KGF. UK dropped an IC in South Africa and Ind on UK1, JPN1 saw the IND IC being taken over. But I think UK is going to send 1 INF and 2 FTR to retake it on UK2 but I’m unsure how long that will hole because Russia had to spend R2 retaking CAU after loosing it on G1.
I went for Heavy Bombers on my turn and bought 1 Bomber, 1 Transport, 1 ARM, and 1 INF. Germany has left WEU very under defended so I think that’s ripe for the attacking, but I’m not sure about the best way to go about it.
Suggestions? I’m mostly worried about the pressure Japan is putting on RUssia and UK/IND right now.
