Yea, that would help.
I’m not thinking it possible to take England with Germany. Not early in the game anyway. (Defined = First 5 rounds of play.)
here is where i’m up to! USA to go on T5. Italy is being shored up by germany, and i’m gearing up for what i hope to be a G6 buy of 3 TBs and 3 Tanks, and then siege to moscow on G7. Japan 6 is looking to move up to burma full force, and calcutta on J7. Japan has garrisoned the pacific, and looks to put down a large nave in SZ6 on J6 and hopefully force a full US retreat.
USA to go, but i should be able to capture caucasus, stalingrad, tambov, and smolensk with Germany, and hold most of that for at least the next 2 collect incomes, and calcutta is going down J7 or J8 depending on UK6. I’m about to hit a sweet spot that germany can allocate a minimum towards moscow and keep it contained, and japan is about to be able to full bore rush the US. Think i’m in good shape!
End of J7, Germany has income of 79, Japan 97
another round of bad dice led to Normandy being held by the US, but i’m going to be putting 13 units a round toward the Atlantic, and i have the USSR income low enough that i should be able to slowly choke them out…
Japan plans a MC on Malaya to send 2 troops a turn to western australia, and place 4-6 naval units a turn in SZ6. 3 tanks and 3 half tracks go towards africa. I’m hope the japanese can actually make an impact there with a minimum of expense.
the US has all of its navy on hawaii with the exception of the ACC and TT off of the western US.
You’re not really close to a VC win, but economically, they won’t be able to catch up. Once moscow falls, your income will increase even more. Normally at this point you’d need to be ready to drop Cairo–that looks uncertain–or take hawaii, which would require that Japan drop big navy and build over USA’s ability to. But you’ve already got what you need to win on that board (Pac), as long as Germany can avoid the fall of Berlin, eventually you’d be able to blow the USA fleet away and take it.
Economically, once one of the axis has 60 and the other 70, the writing is on the wall, you’re well past “threshold”
@taamvan I kind of hope my japanese contingent can get to egypt! They really only have one big UK stack down there, and with calcutta in my hands, i think i can actually get into egypt (or at least africa)w/ the japanese!
Allies Concede! Thanks to everyone who provided input!! We restarted and switched teams, so i fear my opponents are going to give me a beating… so i may start a ‘help with the allies thread’!
