So then perhaps a better poll would be what round do you switch to European front as the US? It will be important to add that yes we all know all games are different, this is asking for an average. For my latest game US turned to the Atlantic on turn 7. After chasing off the Japanese fleet, then capturing and building an IC in Korea.
And what was the situation in Europe after that?
Still to be decided, this game is not over yet. Germany has reached the German Soviet border and made sure to take and hold all german territories this past turn.(7) Italy has been bringing 3 turns of 4 trn loads to Syria, a large Italian army is present in Iraq/Persia/Npersia and Most of Germany’s navy is in the Caribbean protecting panama and putting a threat out on the US coast.
Great work again! Just one problem on MediaFire. I was able to download all files but the China and France charts. I can see them, but can’t get the site to let me download. I was able to transfer them to my account files, but still could not download. It just sends me in a loop to start the download over and over again. Anyone else have issues? Can anyone offer any other suggestions here?
Surrender isnt part of our vocabulary, correct me if I’m wrong in alpha2 when London falls that brings the US into the war, so why not fight or just give it away I game for the battles (Kursk) = big tank battles between Germany and Russia or (truk Lagoon) big naval battles between Japan and USA or the Battle of Britain/Sealion. and I like to win , to add or change the rules can be fun but this game was not designed to be redesigned by all of us, It’s a step up from the Anniversary edition. If because the Axis won the last 4 games means the Allies cant win , then I think you may be missing some thing but I dont think so from what I can tell the people on the forum are skilled, experienced players. There are a bunch of people who think the game is unbalanced with the Allies being the one with the upper hand. This subject might get ya to think that it is balanced the other way. In 25+ yrs I’ve seen where one side will get a bunch of wins only to be offset by the other, overall I would say that the score is about 50/50 we play on average 2 games a weekend. How did Hitler say it……fight to the last man I think Stalin said it to… Keep gaming and post the results.
Hi guys. I will be playing me first Global 1940 game this weekend and i was wondering how balanced Alpha 2 setup is when using global. Is it about a 50/50 win/loss ratio between the Axis and Allies or do the Allies have an advantage that needs to be balanced out with a bid? We are playing 2v2 and all players are about equal in skill and experience. Thanks.
Strategy should be simple: send every units possible to London, dont try anything fishy
And send Australian fighters to India. (possible russians fighters if that will make the big difference)
And buy some art if you expect germany going to Scotland, when they do you hit them hard for a round or 2 (but dont win, just do damage)
A simple post leads to the question of how….the length of the post is to explain how.
I can do simple and vague.
all units London and surrounding sz, kill German navy, reinforce India with a few Russians, save Africa, and use the Anzac as effectively as possible.
Thank you for the productive post
Why yes it is! My son acquired that from some Army friends of ours. It’s a showpiece and, obviously, not a live round. Good eye for the detail too.
It caught my attention because I own an empty .50cal heavy machine gun round which I bought at an antique show. From the different shape and apparently larger size of the round on your shelf, I took a guess that it was the 20mm type. I think that bits of military paraphernalia like this (things like flags, propaganda posters, maps, officer caps, 1940s-style rotary telephones, medals and so forth) make wonderful “set decorations” in a war-themed gaming room and really help to create an inspiring atmosphere.
