The Allied powers include the United States, China, United Kingdom, and ANZAC.
and page 10:
When all of the territories this road passes through
are controlled by the Allies during China’s Collect Income
phase, China receives a bonus income of 6 IPCs per turn.
Even without an industrial complex, China can purchase and
mobilize artillery, but only if the road is open during China’s
Purchase and Repair Units phase.
I did hold my nose and watch BoB after several friends assured me it wasn’t some leftist revisionist effort. I watched the interviews with some of the soldiers involved and when they only panned some of the inaccurate historic aspects I decided to watch it. I was going to do the same here until I read a recent Hanks’ interview where “he wanted to emphasise(sic) the way the Japanese had been treated by American soldiers” and “also wanted to have people say, ‘We didn’t know our troops did that to Japanese people’.” He then implied that same racial hatred of WWII soldiers was present in Iraq and Afghanistan today…
Yup. I’m done with this. Needless to say I decided to read Sledge’s book instead. Rather get the straight story from someone who was there instead of a revisionist retelling as seen through PC colored digital camera lenses.
Once the Japanese have all of China and India and Australia, and the Germans and Italians can attack the US, the game is over anyway. Conquering the US is feasible, but it won’t be that deciding factor that turns the tide. The axis will have already gotten the permanent upper hand.
Yes, but this scenario ISN’T possible with the Pacific game, as the US has only ONE FRONT to deal with. There has to be some rule that lets Japan grab as much as she can BEFORE the US enters the war b/c she’ll HAVE to have equal footing for there to be a “fair” game. Otherwise its just fighting against the dice the whole time.
No doubt xzorn was talking about the combined game.
I don’t see how Japan could ever loose unless the dice are god aweful. With Russia not there as a threat and US making significantly less money in the pacific. How does Japan loose, even with the new Alpha 3 setup?
I don’t know the acronym VC. I see on the acronym thread there’s a CV for Cruisers. If memory serves, I had 4 cruisers and 2 BS for bombardment options. By Japan’s R3, the US and ANZAC fleets were, together, noteworthy, but not yet in position.
