The other idea is that no one can be in Russian territory except Axis and Russians which also significantly increases Germany’s odds and again, encourages Japan to attack America since America really has nothing better to do than help in Africa and attack Japan.
Please sign-up in this thread in the tourney forum:
Everything is the same as last year.
Latest Rules + FAQs
NO - Yes
Tech - No
All other optionals are off
We will list top 4 seeds from last years no-tech tourney (spring 2010 - if they sign-up) and the rest of the backets will be assigned randomly
You will be bidding for the Allies.
Full placement bids. Standard bid rules apply (can only place bid in spots where you already have units, etc.)
You will bid in IPC, but you can spend the bid on units once bidding is completed.
Bidding will be done in an Auction Style to keep everything in house.
Once brackets are assigned I (or another mod) will do a random roll for each round to see which player will start the bidding (either top player on bracket or bottom). The players will then bid down until one player concedes the sides.
Player 1 - I’ll play the Allies with 9
Player 2 - I’ll play the Allies with 7
Player 1 - I’ll play the Allies with 6
Player 2 - You win, you can take the Allies with 6
Tentative start date will be Feb. 15.
Official schedule will be determined once I know how many players we have. Assume 1 month per rd.
We may cap participation at 16 or 32 depending on participation. If there is overwhelming interest we may add in another play-in round.
They are not plano boxes this time.
Its about 14 inches by 8.5 by 1.75
with 24 compartments and the most important thing: each compartment has already precut and FITTED panels. These are not like plano because these don’t jump out or get dislodged. I got them at Harbor freight tools for $4.99 each.
For f2f games, you need professional equipment, if better skills and experience is not enough, you need to be sure.
It’s even better than low luck

Yes, I built a factory in India and Australia. The Japs went for Australia first but I was able to delay them with two of my destroyers so that Aussies could build two infantry before they could get there. Added to the already 3 you have plus the artillery, the AA gun, and an American fighter and bomber that landed there. Since he was after the Aussies this gave time for the Indian Factory to build 3 Armor plus the 3 infantry, 1 Artillery, and AA gun that are already there. I was going to send my South African troops to help in Egypt but, by this time the Axis was already losing in North Africa and I sent them to India. I considered building a factory in Canada to avoid the German Air power when I built 1 or two ships near the UK when my fleet was in the Med. In the end I didn’t but it would have been nice to have. There should be the ability to build in all of these areas from the beginning. Looking at the '42 scenerio it looks very hard to build a factory in India without losing it right away.
