  • @crockett36 I’m gonna call a “check” here. The Russian capital is completely exposed to capture by the German tank in Ukraine SSR.

  • '22 '19 '18

    Thanks. How stupid! I’ll fix it after church. Where are my staff officers?

    Thank you for the “check.” Much appreciated. I don’t find that often on the forums, but I’ve run into that kind of relaxed, game loving gentlemanliness across the board several times.


  • @crockett36 to win by the “ha-ha-gotcha” is not to win at all… that’s my feeling anyway and I agree that it is one that is a minority.

    Whatever is good.


  • @crockett36 thanks - still prefer the first time I rolled on the active board given there was no change in strategy. I would say that regardless of dice results for either side.

    in short, you’re clear to use the file just above your last post, “G9hotroll”

    Hey, so fun turn for me. Had a computer glitch. Take a look at the Russian turn. No purchase. Yet the income didn’t double. What do you think happened?

  • '22 '19 '18


  • @crockett36 I dont believe there is any glitch - the Japanese rockets and heavy bombers eliminated the Russian income.

    G10.tsvg


  • @crockett36 I’m also going to have to call ‘foul’ on the submarine spam. The amount of subs is limited by the number of pieces in the game (not chips). Since only six sub groups are allowed on the board at any one time, you’ll have to combine one of those subs with another.

    Reference: page 7, center column under “plastic chips”.

    The official Q&A also back this up:

    “The number of playing pieces is a limit on how many forces can be in play. No one, for example, can have more than three bomber forces, or more than two carrier groups. The only exception to this absolute limit is chips.”

    J10.tsvg in the current board condition, throwing for tech as Japan is part of my overall strategy. I basically don’t change what I do as the Axis from game to game. I have a video on my YouTube channel where I lay this all out if you were interested (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AnJReTMIlU8).

    In short, Germany “waltz’s” on the East Front (as you saw) while Japan expands and purchases a bomber or two when convenient. This serves the dual purpose of both providing a stream of bombers to hit the Russian complex ‘ad nauseum’ while at the same time leaving the door open for the end game “hail mary” if things start to turn sour.

    The hail mary is heavy bombers (or the Atom bomb as your friend, Mr. Harris originally envisioned it). And this is why I feel very confident that if any version of axis and allies survives the test of time, it will be the Milton Bradley, 2nd Edition.

    It is the only version that allows the player who has started to lose the game a path to victory, however narrow. Even if it doesn’t work out, the adrenaline rush and nervousness around the board is worth it for its own sake. If it does work out (as in this case) the game continues. In my opinion, this is genius.

    I love most versions of axis and allies, but no other version comes close to what this version can do in this regards. The original heavy bombers and tech rules were like the olive in a martini. Perfection.

    I regret what technology rules have evolved into.


  • @crockett36 that’s not to denigrate what you and the other axis and allies teams did. I have extraordinarily high respect for any name in the credits of any game branded ‘axis and allies’. They’re exceptional games, the whole lot. I say this as someone who has stacked a lot of time over many war board games.
