So we’re playing an Alpha+3 game here in Southern California.
I’ve never used tech before in Global '40, so we decided ‘what the heck’.
I’m playing as Germany and Italy, there’s one guy playing Japan and four Allies players.
Germany buys two dice, no successes. Japan buys one, no luck. USA buys four dice, nothing. It comes to the Italian turn. Don’t have anything better to buy… I roll a 6 and and a 5.
So the Italians have Rockets now.
As I understand in Alpha+3, AA guns no longer fire rockets. Air bases fire them at range 4, only against Industrial Complexes. To my chagrin, there are no ICs within 4 of the only air base in Italy.
So I buy an air base for Northern Italy, which can hit Britain. Then after I flag Bessarabia with Italy, I toss another one out there for hitting Moscow. I’m about to drop another in Egypt for striking at the minor IC in South Africa.
MWAHAHAHAHA. Italian Rockets rule.
Any other ideas? Iraq next? How about West Indies, Suriname and British Guiana? Rocket attacks on the whole USA might be cool.
