L22 OOB ABH (X) vs WinterWarrior(A+40)


  • Yeah it feels like an important big decision but I thought about this yesterday and I think I have a plan I am comfortable with… This is my first time, but it feels like a reasonable bid… I did some quick reading on the forum… Not sure I see people do this a lot but it makes sense to me…

    40 Bid 34 to Russians 6 to British British Sub in 98 Sea Zone…

    1 artillery placed in Caucasus
    1 artillery placed in Ukraine
    1 artillery placed in Western Ukraine
    1 artillery placed in Belarus
    1 artillery placed in Novgorod
    1 artillery placed in Vyborg
    1 artillery placed in Karelia
    1 infantry placed in Archangel
    1 infantry placed in Russia

    Russians buy 7 artilleries and 2 infantry; 0 PU unused



  • @arthur-bomber-harris No scramble thanks


  • @winterwarrior bid placement looks good

  • standard J1. About average dice rolls with no major failures.


  • enjoy your big turn


  • Let’s get things started Scramble Sea of Japan?
    KamikazeUS1-Scramble (1).tsvg ?


  • @winterwarrior I am taking a gamble but the reward is great if the gamble suceeds…


  • Max scamble. 3 kamikaze attacks on each surface ship.

    I see about a 20% chance of success in this battle with an expected TUV swing of -25. Add in the chance that your fleet is out of position as it needs to pick up a surviving fighter. Are you sure the gamble is worth it?


  • With this battle being so difficult to announce order-of-losses, I would like to see the outcome of each round before deciding which units to lose.

  • @arthur-bomber-harris No problem, was planning on stopping after first round of hits for any potential casualties choices


  • @winterwarrior dice gods don’t like me this game


  • lose the tac with that one hit.


  • not much choices for me any more…


  • @arthur-bomber-harris Agreed not really a likely outcome… You are building up some serious dice karma .


  • @winterwarrior it hasn’t been that game changing yet. I can handle these minor things that don’t ruin the overall strategy.


  • @arthur-bomber-harris Absolutely, game is far from over… Allies won’t be home by Christmas by any stretch of the imagination…
