[Anniversary '41] Alternate National Objectives
Hey everyone, I put together some alternative national objectives for the 1941 Scenario in 50th Anniversary Edition. I think Anniversary is a fantastic game, but I’m often frustrated by the need for a large Allied bid and by the way almost all of the action focuses in the Atlantic theater, especially France. Using the out-of-the-box rules, France is part of a national objective for Germany, Italy, the UK, and the USA – it just strikes me as overkill. So, here’s my attempt to re-balance the game! Please let me know what you think.
Add 1 factory to Australia
Add 1 British transport and 1 British cruiser to Sea Zone 28 (near South Africa)
Add 2 Chinese infantry to Yunnan
Add 1 Russian artillery to Stanovoj Chrebet
Add 1 Italian tank to Libya
Add 1 German infantry to France

Looks fine but from what I can see, two objectives I don’t like the values.
Northern Lend-Lease should be more due to getting equipment from both UK and US.
Pacific Lend-Lease should be less because USSR refused to take any combat Lend Lease through that route because they did not want to give an excuse for Japan to declare war so they only took non combat issued items.
