1942.2 total vic. w/ int: Zombie69 (Axis) vs Commando Brado (Allies + 12)


  • @Zombie69:

    Please disregard the above post. Here’s the up-to-date one.

    I need you to pick your losses for SZ 13. Note that there’s a 54% chance I’ll take Morocco, so if you sink the carrier and I retreat, your plane could be lost. You’re lucky I only scored 6 hits in 15 dice, or there would be no choice to make! :evil: (Actually, there might have been one in the first round of combat if I had scored more than 3 hits with my 9 planes.)

    Please use the second save, since the first round of combat was an obvious choice with 2 destroyers and an empty carrier to take as losses.

    Basically, you’ve got one unit to choose to protect your transports, and you’ve got a choice between a fighter, a cruiser and a carrier.

    You’re lucky I only got 2 hits in Round 2 and no hits in Round 4.


  • True that.

  • The battle in India was very one-sided, sorry about that. On average I was supposed to take it with one artillery while losing one fighter. Still, even with standard outcomes, I believe the game was pretty much over with no American fleet to speak of and Brits taken out of the equation everywhere but in Africa.  😐

    Uh YEA!!! VERY much one sided! LOL!  😞  😮  :?  :lol:  :x  😛  :oops:  😢  :roll:  😐 You’re exactly right. You should have taken it w/1 Art, while losing one of your fighters. That was totally slated in your favor. You have 4 Inf & 4 Art too much in India.  😛

    The whole idea behind me putting my 2 Brit AC’s w/4 FTR’s in SZ35 was to force you to either attack the American fleet in SZ58 or attack the Brit fleet in SZ35. From the odds calculator, you would have had to bring 3 of your FTR’s to the fleet battle in SZ35 w/all of your fleet, plus 1 FTR, 3 Bmbr’s to India, pretty much preventing you from doing both. Saving India. If your fleet did come down to SZ35, then I would have whacked them w/the American airforce. AND, India still would have been able to have been taken back w/the American tank in TJ, plus the bomber. Then, reinforced by the Brits in Persia. And, India could have built that turn. W/out any Japanese transports, plus the tanks coming down from Russia, I believe I could’ve held India. However, when you get amazing dicing like you did in India, it’s pretty hard to overcome those odds.

    I completely spaced on the FTR’s in Yakut reaching SZ58. Like I said, I figured you’d need your entire fleet this turn to take India, therefore I figured you might attack the US fleet in SZ58 w/your fleet, then I could whack you back in SZ58. Or, you wouldn’t have attacked India this turn, not attacked the US fleet, giving the US more naval superiority in the Pacific.

    In hindsight, I would have done something slightly different w/the US. And, if I had left my fleet in SZ13, I would have left 4 FTR’s there instead of 2. Or, just moved my US fleet all together and taken Norway.

    Anyway, good game. Like I said, this is my first 1942.2 game, so there was a little bit of a learning curve. Wanna play again?  😄 Same sides? Same bid? I

    I’m going to take the US and Russia turn just for the kicks of it, just to see what happens…  😛

  • Pretty sure I’ll lose this one but let’s play it out for another round to see what happens. Do you want to start another game to coincide with this one? Same sides? Same bid? Or, I can play the Axis this time w/the bid we agreed to before. But regardless, will you give me another game w/me playing the Allies, same bid to try and redeem myself?  😄


  • I’ll let you beat me up for another round on this one if you’re game?


  • @Commando:

    The whole idea behind me putting my 2 Brit AC’s w/4 FTR’s in SZ35 was to force you to either attack the American fleet in SZ58 or attack the Brit fleet in SZ35. From the odds calculator, you would have had to bring 3 of your FTR’s to the fleet battle in SZ35 w/all of your fleet, plus 1 FTR, 3 Bmbr’s to India, pretty much preventing you from doing both. Saving India. If your fleet did come down to SZ35, then I would have whacked them w/the American airforce. AND, India still would have been able to have been taken back w/the American tank in TJ, plus the bomber. Then, reinforced by the Brits in Persia. And, India could have built that turn. W/out any Japanese transports, plus the tanks coming down from Russia, I believe I could’ve held India. However, when you get amazing dicing like you did in India, it’s pretty hard to overcome those odds.

    Actually, my 2 choices that made sense were 1) to do as I did and go without transports but with 6 planes or 2) to go with transports but without planes, taking India with a few guys left on it, destroying your fleet with everything that could reach while losing only a destroyer and 3 bombers. In that case, my fleet still survives your American attack since it’s intact except for one destroyer. The reason I went this route was that the other only gave me a 64% win rate in Russia (even though I end up with more troops on the ground there on average) and I really wanted to make sure that your Russian fighters died.

    In hindsight, I would have done something slightly different w/the US. And, if I had left my fleet in SZ13, I would have left 4 FTR’s there instead of 2. Or, just moved my US fleet all together and taken Norway.

    I could still destroy it even with 2 more fighters, or if you took Norway (in range of the 3 subs). As it is, I destroyed it easily and on average should have lost one less bomber than I did. Still, I had two bombers left. I made the mistake earlier of not leaving my planes in range and letting it move there, but now that they were in range, you had to get out. Your best move was to send 6 fighters and a bomber on my Med fleet, while retreating and building more fleet on the US East Coast.

    Anyway, good game. Like I said, this is my first 1942.2 game, so there was a little bit of a learning curve.

    In the marketplace forum, you said you played twice with your board game!  😉

    Wanna play again?  😄 Same sides? Same bid?

    Before we started the game, you suggested taking the Allies with 12 and letting me take them with 8 in the next game. Wanna try that instead? I need more work with my Allies, as the only 1942.2 game I’ve ever lost was with the Allies.


  • @Commando:

    I’ll let you beat me up for another round on this one if you’re game?

    I think it’s a bit pointless as I’m not one to beat a dead horse. After one more round, you’d have no plane left anywhere in the world except the 4 off India (Germany drops on the one in Africa and could even take Brazil one turn later), the Russians don’t even have any tanks either (Persia gets annihilated with 1 INF, 4 ART, 1 TNK, 3 FGT, 3 BMB), there isn’t any allied fleet left in the Atlantic and no Pacific threat that Japan can’t easily handle. Germany plucks down 6 transports this turn and there’s nothing UK can do to keep me from taking London one turn later with as many as 8 INF, 6 TNK, 3 FGT, 2 BMB. In fact I’d have a 51% chance of taking it now, but why risk it when I can take it for sure one turn later?

    I suggest we just start a new game and forget about this one quickly!

  • Here, I played the German turn just to give you a better picture of what I meant.  😄


  • I could still destroy it even with 2 more fighters, or if you took Norway (in range of the 3 subs). As it is, I destroyed it easily and on average should have lost one less bomber than I did. Still, I had two bombers left. I made the mistake earlier of not leaving my planes in range and letting it move there, but now that they were in range, you had to get out. Your best move was to send 6 fighters and a bomber on my Med fleet, while retreating and building more fleet on the US East Coast.

    Yes, you could have destroyed the US fleet w/2 more FTR’s. The idea would be to destroy more German airforce. But, the idea was all hands on deck to try and save India AND if Japan moved it’s fleet to the SZ off India, whack it with the 4 US FTR’s and 1 US SBR. And, if Japan didn’t move it’s fleet there, then I would have 4 US FTR’s to move into India if necessary. In hindsight, as discussed, it would have been better for me to move my fleet completely out of harms way, still allowing me to protect Britain if necessary, not attack Morocco at all and just attack Norway w/1 Trans, 2 Inf & 1 US SBR in England. Or, not attack Norway at all. SZ2 would have been a good place for the US fleet to be safe. With the 2 US Trans, 3 Inf 1 Art in SZ2, I could have attacked Norway the following turn. Like I said, I was trying to save India, which was obviously key for the Allies to continue the game and have a reasonable chance of winning. I was trying to press the Axis and hopefully get a little lucky w/dicing.

    If I had done something a little different w/the US, I could have had a better showing. Losing the Brit SBR in the beginning hurt as well.


  • In the marketplace forum, you said you played twice with your board game!  wink

    I played it twice w/my 16 year old son. That doesn’t count.  😛 I was trying to teach him the mechanics of the game. And, that was some time ago when the game first came out.


  • Before we started the game, you suggested taking the Allies with 12 and letting me take them with 8 in the next game. Wanna try that instead? I need more work with my Allies, as the only 1942.2 game I’ve ever lost was with the Allies.

    Ok, sounds good. I’ll take the Axis, giving you the Allies at +8. Start a new thread, place your units and take the Russian turn.
