Transports are no different than other units in this game as regards casualties. They don’t need to be taken last, and they are not automatically destroyed when alone. If you choose to sacrifice your warships to protect your transports, they can retreat if they survive.
Which side is better off?
My experenced Axis and Allies players, I have a simple question for you that I need answered by Sunday morning.
Which side should win more between.two players of equal skill?
You see I am teaching my girlfriend to play Axis and Allies, and I only have Revised, and 1940. I think it is best to start with the game that doesn’t have a board longer than she is tall. I wish to give her the better side as to compensate for my additional skill and practice in the game.
Thank you for any advice you can.offer
In my opinion, the Allies have a better chance of winning. I consider the Axis to be more challenging, but more fun to play.
I’d say if the players are experienced, the Allies are easier to win with. But I think the Allies are harder to play for novice players. Getting the USA logistics up and running can be daunting for new players. Plus it takes a lot more inter-country cooperation and coordination to run a successful war as the Allies.
