The original strategy was no secret what Japan was doing. It was hauling units back and dropping serious money on transports. The idea was to get them next to W. USA/Panama or one space away so you could close the Canal and take W. USA before America could build enough to stop you. Meanwhile, the Germans had to be in SZ 91 with some transports of its own, it was like 10 transports and units in Gibraltar./SZ 91 so they could attack E. USA or E. Canada. That made it so America lost Panama and W. USA but could build enough to stop an E. USA attack but not enough toliberate W. USA and E. Canada.
It was almost unstoppable. Or rather, I have never seen anyone stop it. (Putting that disclaimer on so that Jimmy/Jim dont start threads about how to stop Operation American Eagle, etc.)
Great videos YG, I own 1940 europe 2nd edition and the factories are really annoying to pick up. But since you pointed out that you can use monopoly cottages and hotels as factories I am starting to use them and its much easier to use and I also use monopoly money its much easier to use then paper and pencil. Again great videos.
BTW when is your japan run through coming out?
Hey Frederick II, Thanks for your comments, glad to help… part 4 of the runthrough series (japan) should be posted on the weekend or early next week.
There are three things that affect strategy. You and your opponents/teammates, the setup, and the dice.
Because there is no affect of dice G1 for instance, the only factors are you and the setup. This comes down to the fact that the setup offers some moves and you pick the best one.
Yes but i forgot about that so you would keep enough to rebuild it or enough to build 3 fighters which gives you two hits out of three.
If you rebuilt t what would you build?
3 figh 50 ipc
3 arm 38 ipc
Shouldn’t rebuild it
1 arm, 2 fig 26 ipc
11 def value so nearly two hits
well, if russia buys three art turn 1 and saves the rest and collects the same turn 2, that would be a turn two buy of 25+37= 62 to spend in 16 slots. which is either 9 tanks and 2 mech inf if Germany is going sea lion, or 14 art + 1 tank if Germany is going for russia. so your save idea seems to have some merit.
