    I was a bit frustrated by the way this game played in the Med but I think I mostly did it right. I can only really identify one major mistake. That was continuing the attack on Iraq UK2 when I could have just retreated to Trans-Jordan and kept the Suez closed. There was no need to take it UK2 when UK3 (or ANZ2) would have been good enough.

    I guess I should have positioned the UK bomber in Gibraltar UK1 too. Would have been much more useful than a strat bomb on W Germany. I wasn’t really anticipating the loss of the SZ92 stack though - perhaps that was a pretty major mistake. With Germany holding Sth France, the 2 Italian fighters can be brought in. Still, it was only 36% and only that good because I lost a plane in SZ96.

    If the I5 amphibious assault on Persia had gotten average dice, this would have been a pretty short game. The Axis got a lot of momentum, including Italian income, when they could pass the Suez. I guess I should have been able to put in another plane.

    Scramble in UK?



  • @simon33

    My great issue is winning in the Pacific… I just don’t know how to close. Why didn’t I press India harder? No idea. Taking Hawaii round 7 is nice and all but taking India round 9 would have paid off better.


  • 2019 2017 2016

    No intercept.

    I have a similar problem in the Pacific, so I’m not the person to ask. You came pretty close but I don’t think holding off Hawaii was a winning move for the Pacific, although it did tie up USA really well. I was also pretty surprised you threw all your ships and planes at that mini fleet I had.

    Yeah, sacrificing the air might have been a great move IF I had been able to follow it up…

    Did a bunch of edits at the end of Germany’s turn, moving planes around to land on carriers, realizing they can scramble out of Scotland, etc.


  • 2019 2017 2016

    Hmm, if I’d have put the Caucasus bomber on Gibraltar like I planned, I could attack the SZ111 fleet, but then I guess you would have positioned slightly differently.

    I still see a point in playing on.

    You win. I needed that SZ111 battle. I feel like you’ve had some luck in this game when it’s counted. Perhaps +10 for allies is enough on low luck, I just didn’t have the luck with me this time? What do you think?

    I’d have to go back and review… I ended up in 3 games as Axis and at one point it all 3 were in the same round 12 so its a bit blurry which game is which.

    Here I think UK’s failed sea zone stack at the beginning hurt since it let’s Italy run wild for a little while, forcing UK to exert a lot of effort.

    Russia stacking Karaelia round 1/2 was a minor mistake, loosing a valueable stack of infantry, forcing you back to your capital as Germany ran south.

    Even in the end here, if you had moved some subs away from Italy to help attack Germany’s fleet… or noticed how weakly defended London was before I did, this game might still go your way because of my screw ups in the Pacific.



  • @simon33

    That puts us even at 1-1. If you want to do a third game I’m in. Doesn’t have to be right away.


  • 2019 2017 2016

    Do you want the same sides or swap? Still low luck?

    Yeah, smashing the SZ92 stack was a major setback for me. It was a 36% attack, I think 18% chance of a draw, so a pretty dodgy attack. It was only that good for Italy because you hit in the SZ96 battle. Otherwise I would have had a tac in the fleet as well, can’t imagine you making the attack in that case.



  • @simon33

    Do you have a preference?We can flip for Axis if you have a preference (I’m actually fine with either) I’m back and forth on low luck. Kind of like not having the wild swings like, in one of my other games I whiffed in a battle despite having like 95% odds and plenty of things attacking at 3 and 4.


  • 2019 2017 2016

    I reckon swap sides. Which gives you allies+10. Placements?



  • @simon33

    Something goofy to try… a destroyer in sz 106, the 2 ipcs to UK



  • @simon33

    You know, as I think about it, not sure what preserving that transport would really do for me long term…if I’m not too late, how about a transport in South Africa and 2 ipcs to Russia

    I assumed the third IPC went to USSR. Let me know if you want to edit.
