Also if Japan holds off until J2 to DoW, but the US player is either dead certain it will happen or hopes to discourage Sea Lion, they can slap a Naval Base on Greenland and load it up with their starting Atlantic forces US1, then drop the troops off in Scotland or Ireland US2. If London is saved at that point, you’re still in a decent position to threaten landings from France to Norway, or even farther if the UK player can be accommodating enough to give you a Naval Base.
Idea for UK1
I made a video about a strategy built around UK Europe. In the video i discuss the UK1 move and it is an answer to the old question wether or not there is an alternative to Taranto. It’s a bit like the Gibastion move but not entirely.
We play OOB tabletop without bid.
I’m not claiming it to be thé best move and off course it depends on what Germany buys G1, but i might give the Axis (especially italy) something to think about.
@cornwallis It’s ambitious, I’ll give you that- although I would rather do a Taranto and take out the Italy threat altogether in the first round and not have to worry about them in the Med for the rest of the game. Btw I would love to see you try this against my group over the YouTube Wars someday just to see if it truly works (I usually Never do a Sealion just to let you know)!!!
@nolimit well it’s a very limited number of attacks so not that ambituous. Combining the Med and the Pac fleet, together wirh some subs even gives you a good chance of Tarznto in the 2nd or 3rd turn.
The luftwaffe can come and get the fleet but at a high cost.
@cornwallis Perhaps, anyway I would look very forward to warring against your group in a possibility of a future YouTube Wars to test out your interesting theory!!! BTW I suggest you turn on your comments section for any of your future YouTube videos just to interact with the community and get their thoughts about your ideas!
@nolimit well we never play online actually. But we can record our next match. Do you post games online?
This is my YouTube channel, I can safely assume that I play more YouTube War games than anybody else- it’s rather easy to play over the YouTube, I’m pretty up there in age and so if I can do it then Anyone can!!!
