I’d only just discovered these rules like a day before this thread popped up. My buddy and I started a game on AAA a while ago to prep for our FtF this weekend:
This would seem to be a counterpoint to the UK/ANZAC 2 DoW. I was doing some goofy stuff in Europe but basically a G4 Sealion is coming. I’ve got a US Atlantic Navy ready for London Calling which would have moved to sz102 but now there’s an interesting conundrum.
If my buddy does a J3 DoW that lets my US forces retake Gibraltar and to stage my UK fighters and STB there. If he doesn’t J3 that’s another whole turn where he isn’t taking Money Islands or India (he’s been content to take SFE and China but I suspect an ANZAC crush coming on – he likes to do them).
So not doing the DoW I think I’m in a slightly better position (although still horrible position overall).
