but reduced UK ATL income? Its a fallback?
Unless we boost it with pieces (grey or tan) and income, then its a great idea
Ram Tanks. Not just 1. Free tanks on C3-4?

Brave Canadian men 3into HR.
germany did sea lion. russia bought mostly mech / tank and bunkered romania when germany/italy finally got enough for force ruskies out (ruskies did a detour for iraq and the african spots). ruskies turned around with mech and tanks and blitzed to calcutta then made it back in time for germany vs russia.
this game coupled with 30 infantry china and all 18 ruskies still alive in asia… japan was shut down. germany took russia, uk just finally got transports and men. uk pac was worthless but still a funny liberation.
yeah sea lion sucks sometimes lol. ruskies owning italy africa is no good lol. +3 each one and iraq too. go go mech + bombers.
the pacific showdown was hilarious too. I am not sure why japan attacked phillipines. it was a mutual destruction battle… but after that anzac’s naval looked pretty nice on an empty board. I had java the whole game because he round 3 india and lost so much stuff.
If japan did not get shut down, I would have totally lost. all he needed was hawaii after round 3. that was a funny game
If any of you are in the Southern CT area and would like to stop in, we’re having a Global Party. Right now we have 2 Global Games being setup and one AA50 Double Blind game. We have 16+ plus people confirmed. If we get more, we will be setting up more games. It’s running from 9am to 9pm or when ever we get tired.
Contact me if interested.
I agree with the thinking here that we should stick to OOB rules for at least a little longer. I don’t mind a few official changes here and there. I always use the errata and FAQ’s that are released after a game comes out due to misprints in the manual or an obvious balance problem (AAP). However, these sweeping changes are too much too fast. Its almost like a few influencial people screamed too early and no one else was able to say, “lets slow down and take a more methodical approach to the changes.”
It seems like we are being caught up in a rushing river and can’t get out. Alpha is evidence that the squeaky wheel gets greased.
I will stick to OOB rules until something official comes out and then evaluate it. If there are a few reasonable changes I will use them, but if it is anything like these Alpha changes, I most likely won’t. I never used LHTR for the same reason.
Yes, an act of war by Japan on UK or ANZAC(and maybe France?) puts them at war with the US.
It does not put them at war. It allows them to declare war. There is a rather large distinction, as Japan can end the turn in seazones with US ships (or attack seazones with both US and UK/Anzac ships, ignoring the US ships) that are still friendly to them until the US declares war on the combat move of its next turn.
Japan declaring war on France has no impact whatsoever. Japan can declare war on france and as long as they don’t attack FIC, they’ll continue to collect their National Objective. Even if they do attack FIC, japan only loses their objective. It does not permit the US to declare war.
True… but if Japan’s choices are destroy the american pacific fleet, destroy the joint indian/chinese army, or destroy the russian army- they probably kill american fleet utterly, buying them several turns of dominance in the sea to systematically win asia.
