Hey, remember that time when….



  • IN THIS THREAD: Entertain me by sharing your most memorable axis and allies revised moments.  Insane dice, surprise invasions, make or break moments, comical mishaps….



  • My first League game with JSP, R1.

    I made a posting error as Russia.  JSP held me to the error even though it was an obvious error.  On the re-roll, I won STRONGER than I had on the first set of dice (which had already been above average).

    That time Japan invaded East US! Failed … but still invaded.



  • From the central US?

    Because a direct amphibious assault would be crazy.

    I once played a 12 VC game with an axis win.  The US still had nothing but washington, and the other powers were out (germany took UK by surprise).  It was a hell of a siege, we ended up calling it quits because we got bored rolling for americas huge stacks of infantry or japan and germanys constant assaults from central US and Canada.

    It was an amphibious assault … the game was lost for Japan so they were just sailing a small fleet around … took Brazil and then invaded E US

    The time I attacked JSP’s combined British/American fleets in SZ 37 with everything I had.  Major battle.  Hundreds of ships counters (representing thousands of ships, more then could fit in the territory, IMHO) with very slight odds in my favor. (54% I think.)  Won in a landslide due to massive accuracy by Japanese Submarines in round 1 and round 2!

    Though, he won the war, Admiral Yamamoto successfully prolonged the fighting by a full 3 years.

    Paraphrasing my alter-ego:

    Six months ago hardly anyone knew my name. Now everyone wants to be my friend a peice of me. I wanted respect. Instead I have become a wishing well a target with legs. Ah well, now I go to spread happiness to the rest of the station board. It’s a terrible responsibility but I have learned to live with it.   😄 😄 😄



  • I am glad you are around JSP…

    I hated being the only target 😛

    I once played back to back face to face games.  First as UK then as Germany.  In teh first game Germany built a sub and tranny in the Baltic.  I hit the enhanced fleet, 3Sub 2Trn 1CC with 2 ftr and a Bmb. Germany made a bad choice rnd 1 and I sunk the whole mess with no loss.

    In the second game, I left the original fleet sitting and the UK player hit me with the same thing, I killed two fighters and sumerged both subs.

    Then laughed alot…



  • In the game I just played, japan attacked 3 us transports (unguarded) using 2 planes and a battleship.

    First round, Japan only gets one hit, us gets 2.  Sucks for japan, but they wanted to get rid of those 3 transports.  Next round, japan gets one hit and USA gets another one as well.  Now its a battleship against a transport, and japan was so intimidated…they retreated.  Next turn they tried again using just a battleships, and they didnt hit while america did, forcing another retreat for fear of losing a battleship.

    The transport was eventually destroyed, but that weak fleet took down 2 planes with it, and nearly sank a battleship.



  • I had a single transport that a battleship moved in to take out. The battleship missed on it’s first round roll, then I rolled a 1 putting the battleship on it’s side. The battleship hit on it’s second round roll and as the transport was going down, I rolled a 1 in the casualty zone and took the battleship out with me. My friend couldn’t believe I rolled two one’s in a row and “sunk his battleship”. It rocked.



  • I think I have a new one to add…

    Remember that time when I had almost kicked Japan completely off the continent AND had destroyed all of their transports by the end of Turn 2, and then at the end of the game Japan was up to over $90 IPC and was preparing to liberate Berlin AND take London?

    Darn shame that happened TO me instead of being done BY me  :oops:

    I played one game back in about 1999 at the old game zone at MSN and i was germany and  had this German battleship that could never be defeated. It survived against long odds against a huge American fleet and that stripped it of its escorts ( it started with 2 hit BB, 2 subs). It then sailed alone against the British fleet and took it out. The UK player missed every time ( he had 4 transports,1 bb, Russian sub). It was ridiculous!  then the US player built some subs and tyranny’s and It mauled that fleet as well. It got a hit from that battle so i decided to retreat.

    The allies quit on that note…they were on the ropes anyway but that sealed the deal. It was the game breaker battleship.

    Against Sankt, some time back i sent 3 bombers after Russia, trying to smash their income.

    2 to russia, 1 to cauccasus….

    All was shoot down, no IPC´s bombed…  Then it went downhill…



  • 4 Japanese transports against a single UK sub on the second round of the game.  The sub took all four out with four two’s in a row.  This was also a Low luck game.  I ended up winning it anyway.

    I was on this ski trip when my car broke down and these 4 girls in a VW Beetle pulled up…

    I lost London on G2 once, (and only once) but I had left just enough troops in to cost him the loss of all his aircraft and all but one tank. I retook it with the US on USA turn 2. Without his planes, he was unable to retake it on G3. I went on to win the game. 😄
        He lost so much in troop costs that even my losses and my captured income didn’t make up for it. Oh, and he lost a sub getting through my Russian sub defending the English channel as well.
    Best laid trap I ever set_! Right_. 😛

  • I have to go with my first game of Axis and Allies, playing Britain, Germany sent 1 submarine, 4 fighters against the British Battleship in sz 13.  Sub hits first round, fighters roll 6s, battleship hits.  The next five rounds the fighters all roll either 5 or 6s and the battleship hits every round except the fourth round.  :evil:

    Too bad that we surrendered the game later, even though we had the economical advantage…  Silly risk players leaving men in Moscow when they control Western Russia, Archangel, and Caucasus.



  • Hi, I’m new to the boards, but I have a funny bad roll story.

    I was playing with Banzai Soldiers and Super Dreadnoughts as Japan. I attacked a British Sub with a BB, a DD and an AC. I attacked India with 4 Infantry, 4 Arm, 2 Ftr, and 1 Bomber versus their 6 Infantry, 2 Arm, 1 Bomber, and 4 Ftr.

    When I attacked the sea zone, the AC and the DD missed and I rolled a 6 on the BB, then the sub got a hit. I tilted the BB. The AC and the DD missed again and my BB got another 6. The sub rolled a 2 and I lost my DD. So I retreated.

    In India, my infantry got one hit, but when I rolled for the tanks and the fighters, I got 6 straight 6s. At least the bomber hit. I retreated after the first round with four casualties.



  • Remember when… Germany fell to Russian troops in a supreme 1-2-3 Allied effort. Just after that, Japan took Moscow, capturing the income of German territories too. As Allies had insufficient troops to retake Moscow and HOLD it, Moscow became a sort of Japanese no man’s land, because if Japan retook Moscow they would retake all German income again…
