As the allies, you must go full pacific. Japan will take India round 3 or 4 at the latest. There is very little you can do about it.
You need swift resolution in the pacific before you can begin to apply pressure in the Atlantic. Luckily UK can hold the middle east for awhile and Russia starts before Germany so it is easier to hold out longer.
Still if you are playing without bids, the axis have a huge advantage. Once Germany holds east poland is when Italy or Germany can start bombing Russia and it will hurt so bad. Losing India puts Japan 1 vc from victory so USA presence in the atlantic is very limited.
Expect to lose the game as the allies. Europe is roll your face on the board do whatever things will happen.
This is a Pacific map.
Going Atlantic just makes the European axis defend against you…. and then next thing you know Japan is making more money than USA and GG.
So basically you are racing the Pacific against Europe. Can Germany get to Russia before Japan is unable to contest islands stops making USA money. Can you do it in time? That is the game.
