Last game my teammate and i decided to try this out.
Advice: don’t do it.
Reason: It completely ruins the game.
Here’s what we did: Spent all of the money on weapons development, and got long range aircraft.
Sent the fighter from Western Europe to take out the tranny by eastern canada. If we won the Britain battle, Germany will have only one land unit left, and britian could use that tank to take it back. We left the north atlantic sub there so U.S. couldn’t take it back during their turn. We sent all 5 of the other fighters, the bomber, a tank, and an infantry against w/e britain had (i think it’s 2 infantry, an artillery, a tank, 2 fighters, and a bomber). we had a 60% chance of winning. Of course we got bad luck, and everyone on both sides was killed, so Britain kept it.
But since the odds were with us, it was, in theory, a good strategy. But here’s how it ruins the game
If odds play out and Germany wins:
Germany keeps Britain, will have enough income their next turn to reinforce it, and buy enough troops to take back what Russia took while Germany had no troops to place. U.S. helps Russia out a lot, and not on Japan, so the Japs roll right through Asia. Y’all can finish the story. Axis wins.
Summary: Why finish the game if you know the Axis will win after Germany’s first turn
If germany gets bad luck and Britain wins:
Germany will place no troops during his first turn. Russia will take over 3 or 4 territories over it’s first 3 turns. When germany finally has reinforcements to use it’s 3rd turn, it’ll take one of those back. Of course Russia has taken quite a bit of income from Germany. Within a few turns, and with a little help from the Brits and americans, they roll right over Germany.
Summary: Why finish the game when you know the allies will win after Germany’s first turn.
So if you’re playing solely for bragging rights, and like leaving everything up to luck, then do this. You’ll also have a lot more time to do other stuff because the game is as good as over in 20 minutes. If you want to have fun and decided the winner mainly on his/her strategies, then don’t do it.
If you’re an allied player and think germany will be stupid enough to do this and want to defend against it. Make sure Russia takes over a country with a fighter in it, so that’ll be one less for Germany to lose. Also fly a fighter to Britain to give him a better chance of winning, or discourage Germany from doing it.
That’s all I have to say. Have a nice day
