They played a game up at the store this weekend, with a new guy recruited out at the staff college, and they Sea Lioned him on Round 3. I was up all Friday night couldn’t sleep–might have committed to the game if I’d only been signing up for 2-3 hours but then again, I would have been on his team and been like, UK1; 3 tanks and a factory for Egypt, round 1, I mean, I realize you’re new and all…
I don’t understand what KGF, 102 or any US presence has to do with the viability of Sea-Lion, only its rescue plan. If there is a J1 or J2, America won’t have a carrier that can sit in 102, because if they’re already at war, they can and should simply cross to 91. (this because they don’t start with one).
in straight G40;
Are you the Allies; Yes
Then KJF, 100% with the US and hold on with the rest. KGF is much harder and splitting leaves you at less than parity with Japan, which otherwise, you can destroy or cripple.
Did Germany buy transports or save money on G1? No
UK can do whatever it wants, pretty much. 1-2 guys per turn might be nice. I buy 2 arty or a factory.
Did Germany buy 2 transports or save money on G1? Yes
Buy 6 men and 1 fighter.
Did they buy lots of strategic bombers? Yes
Well, not whatever UK wants, watch out for being bombed into submission on G2-4. buy at least a few men for protection.
Did Germany buy a pile of transports on G3 or later? Or leave all its air on Western Germany where it can reach London? Is Russia going to be frustrating enough to him that attacking UK somehow seems easier?
Watch out, hes thinking about attacking you. Hopefully you bought 6-10 extra pieces on rounds UK1-4. You’ll need 15 or so guys and 2-3 air to dissuade this. 1 ship is nice, it blows his bombards. Thank goodness you go after him in the turn order and this isn’t your first game.
After G2-3, did Germany leave its air and tanks where its more convenient to attack Russia than UK? Yes
Hes bluffing. UK, Ignore him. He can build all his transports late but he cant build all the men, tanks, planes and boats on one turn no matter how much money he has because he can only drop ten pieces, like you.
Did Germany leave all its air and armor on West Germany? Yes
Hes about to attack you. Turtle.
