    now someone here  has some sense. why do you need the rusian to take out the german navy. what are the british doing  smoking tea leaves? you need to take as much land as possible from the germans.

    USA 1:

    2 Bombers

    USA 2:

    2 Bombers

    USA 3:

    Trans/Infantry

    USA 4: Germany has no income, doesn’t matter what you’re buying. 🙂

    Okay, only really works well in LL because of the 3.5 IPC damage vs 2.5 return fire damage rule.  That’s a benefit of 5 IPC for America and you’re only using American infantry for support anyway, tnaks are nice, but not needed.  Let england capture it all, she’s closer to Europe anyway.

    @ncscswitch:

    Russia:
    3 INF, 1 ARM ,1 FIG

    why whould anyone need a fig for russia? that one makes no sense

    I’ve used this buy successfully many times.  I will usually add a 4th fighter in R2 or R3.  The fighters give Russia a lot of flexiblity.  From the caucasus they can reach all of eastern europe most of Central Asia and India.  Also they are very useful when your trading territory with Germany.

    Or if Germany’s being a jerk, 4 fighters is plenty to sink the Transport/Battleship fleet for Germany.  At times that can force Germany to blow money on auxillery ships.

    On my current lowluck game i lost my med fleet to a ftr and bmb =[


  • 2007 AAR League

    In our new game CC and I opted for 2 Inf in Ukr. and 1 IC to Japan and 1 IC to Germany - we’ll see how it goes!! (8 IPC bid)


  • 2007 AAR League

    its IPC not IC


  • 2007 AAR League

    Right. And also, we’re talking about buys, not bid placements, which is what I described - DOH! I have a neat idea for G1, but I won’t post it here until Jennifer and Frimmel play their R1…

    2 Destroyers, 1 Aircraft Carrier, 1 Artillery???


  • 2007 AAR League

    thats a grave gamble. and as for you froodster: WHO THE HELL BIDS $36??



  • In my current game my Russian R1 purchase was 1Bomber, 1 Armor, 1 Infantry, save 1 dollar. As we have yet to complete the first round I don’t know how well it will work. I prefer to use air assets with Russia anyway as they land behind the lines and do not become ireplacable casualties like armor.

    As far as a Russian AC I have used that before although not on round one. It was an intentional throw away purchase to get the Germans to use their air assets to attack fighters deffending at 4. While I lost a fleet I had no real use for the Germans lost most of their luftwaffe which was my goal.

    @ezto:

    It was 2 IPCs, not 2 ICs.



  • @froodster:

    @ezto:

    It was 2 IPCs, not 2 ICs.

    naturally this was an obvious typo - he just typed that we had a bid of 8 ipcs, and with 2 inf, it’s only natural that 1 ipc each would go to japan and germany.
    And Jen - what are you talking about?



  • @Nukchebi0:

    What are the traditional Turn 1 buys?

    this isn’t written in stone but IN KGF
    Russia: 2inf,2art,2tank
    Germany: 4inf, 3art, 2trn
    UK: 2 trn,4 inf
    Japan: 3trn,1art save 2 ipc or 2trn and 1 ic with bid
    USA: 3trn,1inf, 3 tanks sav 4


  • 2007 AAR League

    I think Jen is suggesting that might be my G1 buy.

    I may as well tip my hand - I’ll be building 2 ICs, one in Algeria and one in Libya, and one sub in the baltic after moving the original baltic fleet to SZ 3. I even save $2 for G2 with that build! Or maybe just 5 subs…

    tu est locco :lol:. thats funny it would probally be more worth it to transport from italy.


  • 2007 AAR League

    You’re right - I’ll put the ICs in Norway and West Russia instead.



  • @froodster:

    can  you link your game here i don’t want to find it. but do except to be able to use them? RUssia should put an ic in Kar. now that would really be funny, especilaly if you put that w. russia ic in ukraine. a wall of ics. 8-) edited added last sentence.



  • @froodster:

    DUDE!!
    Stop sharing our secrets of ultimate German (and Japan) conquest!!!

  • would this bid help or hurt germany. 161 bid. one ic to each gray teritory and then 2 inf to either ukraine or libya.


  • 2018 2017 '16 '11 Moderator

    161, why not get 12 Transports, 2 Aircraft Carriers, 11 Infantry?



  • @cyan:

    it should be 131(counted germany and italy :oops:) but the reason is because you would be unstoppable with 131 or 1 tank and 42 inf in w. russia.  i was just wondering  if each german terrotory had an ic in, how would that affect the game. would it hurt germany beacuse the captured ics can be used by the allies or woud it help them beacuse the could build agnywhere they wanted.?



  • I dont know, if an allied player took one, I believe it could be taken back next turn, or at least the buys in that territory contained since it would be surrounded with newly placed units next turn.
