I play axis and allies often, and there is one stratagy that always works for the allies. In this game, all strategys should be based off your opponents moves, but the first turn moves and purchases are straight forward.
buy- 10 INF 1 TANK
In short, don’t do anything. Pull all the troops that GE has not killed back to Belorussia, eastern Ukraine and Archangel. Pull all the troops out of karilia into Archangel. Take your AA with you.However, leave only 1 INF in Belorussia and eastern Ukraine. they should create a buffer for Moscow so you can take out all your troops there and put them into Archangel and the Caucasus. I will not go into all the other troops, but bring everything past the Urals east and everything else west.
Place the tank in Moscow, 4 INF in the Caucasus, 1 in Karilia, and 5 in Moscow.
buy- 1 factory 3 subs (save the rest)
Do the obvious moves. bring trans Jordan troops to Egypt, take out the German navy, possibly land in norway. DO NOT LAND PLANES IN RUSSIA YET. Russia needs the IPCs more then it needs anything else. it does not need extra defence. In the east, pull out of burma. leave 1 troop tho as a buffer. also, bring your transport and destroyer west to bring your troops from South Africa up by means of transport. take your troops out of Australia and flee. you are outmatched and those troops will not matter.
Place the factory in India, and the subs in England.
buy- All subs.
Subs are like sea INF. Their cheap, have good attack and destroy any fleet if it is lacking a destroyer. Your turn depends largely on what Japan does first. In any case DO NOT position your fleet near Hawaii. It is too easy for the Japanese to kill. Go to CA. You will have the benefits of supply lines and you can start island hopping turn 2. bring all your planes to land on Hawaii. the Japanese lack the transports to kill the island.in the west move all your troops to England. leave your destroyer in case of an Italian sneak attack into DC.
Place the subs in CA with the rest of your fleet
buy- 2 INF
Your turn is simple- respond to Japanese attacks. protect your fighter at all costs. retake kuyontung of possible/ take one of the 3 Japanese coastal settlements. Take pressure off India, if it survives you will have 3 tanks a turn. make sure you do not need Russian reinforcements by making stupid attacks. Sneak through Japanese lines and create as much chaos as possible
