Hi all, new poster, longtime reader.
I am in the middle of a game right now that started out pretty basic. Germany charged russia, defeated them, and turned south for egypt. Italy defended the West and helped harass in the med. UK made a strong Middle East presence and Normandy. US went in Normandy and scandinavia. (we play Alpha 2). However, USA made a strong push for moscow from scandinavia, drawing the Germans away from the middle east. The Italians and Germans pushed on the Normany beachhead too. UK took over a lot of South Russia while the Amis were being beaten back in the North. The coolest part was when 16 Ami transports and 8 british came to rescue the british from the impending axis assault on normandy. The German airforce wiped out the navy defending those transports (120+ lost IPCs for both sides), but UK was down to 3 rolls at 4 with 3 german planes left, and hit all 3, so it was total mutual destruction except the germans did not have one plane left to kill the 24 transports, and the brits were saved. Even with the stunning (late) dunkirk, it looks like the germans will win, even though Italy is about to be invaded by 30 trns worth of Amis and Brits. UK and US also invaded most of the Strict neutrals oon the same turn, opening up a Fourth front for germany in turkey (Balkans, France, Leningrad, Caucasus), but it looks like the americans will be soon pushed out of scandinavia and then the 30 tanks in Germany’s main army can move south.
Anyways, it’s been up and down, left and right, and I have seen things I have never seen before (Germany has 6 bombers lol) What is the craziest game you can remember?
