Is 6 ipc's enough?


  • 2007 AAR League

    I’m thinking 5 is a fine bid for full placement. With 1 inf to Germany and 2 IPC’s to Japan for a 4 TP build I think it’s possible to hang with most players.

    You could probably get away with a 4 bid and only 1 IPC to Japan, for 2 TP, 1 IC, but with all this recent talk about US naval superiority and what to do with the UK Pac fleet, I’m expecting that someone might take a shot at KJF in the tourney so I’m leery about it. If the US goes KJF, then 4 TP’s on J1 really helps evacuate most of the islands quickly enough to get the infantry to the mainland and the TP’s back into an attack position before the US gets rolling.

    But, judging from jsp’s post, our team might have a small disagreement on what bid is too low.

    Our 3 bid game went 25 rounds before I threw in the towel.  Would 2-3 more IPC’s at start changed the outcome, probably not.  However I won’t be making any more 3 ipc bids  😄
