A huge thanks for this. I hadn’t gotten around to making an IPC excel sheet for my group and it looks like I won’t have to thanks to you. Great job.
Who else has played Global 42? Has anyone else found a huge axis advantage, not so much with Germany /Italy but Japan is a monster. Round 1 Japan takes out the US force around Solomon’s and Pearl Harbor and usually has India by round 3 or 4. The only way to try and mitigate the Japan is for the US to throw all their money to the Pacific. Do other groups bid for the allies?
Japan is ridiculously strong (but then is on 1940 too).
Germany can be held a while and Italy should not grow at all, but the U.S. must invest nearly all its income in the Pacific.
Still makes a refreshing change from 1940 though.
