Ok, in my Axis and Allies game me and 4 others always play the same countries and I play Japan. I need alittle help deciding what first attacks to make and was going to see if my strategy is about right to counter my opponents opening moves.
Here is the synopsis from last game (this may not be the same everytime, but if they do this again I was wanting input on what to do).
Russia - Lend Lease
Germany - Wolf Pack
Britain - Free Complex: Place in Australia (Does Britain not have the best advantages??)
Japan - Bonzai Troops
USA - Bomber AA immunity
Russia first turn:
Buys 8 Inf.
Attacks West Russia, taking it from Germany.
Can’t remember now but I think they also take Belorussia.
Fortifies Caucasus with Kazakh Inf.
Sends Fighter to Egypt.
Sends Fighter to India.
Fortifies Buryatia with 6 Inf.
Sends 4 Inf to Russia from Novosibirsk and Evenki.
Moves Sub from SZ4 to SZ2
Places 4 Inf in Caucasus & 4 in Russia.
Germany first turn: (Didn’t do this last game but this is my idea for the next time.)
Buy 1 AC and 8 Inf.
Pick Up Inf and Tank from Souther Europe on SZ14 Transport.
Attack Destroyer in SZ15 with Battleship and Transport.
Unload troops into Egypt and attack with 2 Inf, 2 Armor, 2 Fighters(Balkans & Ukraine).
Attack Battleship in SZ13 with 2 Fighters, Bomber, Sub.
Retake Belorussia (If taken).
Attack Karelia with 3 Inf (maybe more from Norway), 3 Tanks, 1 Fighter.
Move Algeria troops to Libya, also land 2 fighters there.
Reinforce West Europe and Ukraine.
Place AC in SZ5 with 2 Fighters on it, Place 8 Inf in Germany.
Britain first turn:
Buys 1Transport, 1 Fighter, 1 Tank, 1 Inf, 1 Art.
Possible Norway attack with 2 Inf, 2 Tanks, 2 Fighters, 1 Bomber and Battleship Clearing Shot.
Or possible attack in Algeria.
Move 1 Inf from Persia to Trans-Jordan.
Combines fleet in SZ38 - 1 AC, 2 Transports, 1 Sub, 1 Fighter, 1 Destroyer.
Move South Africa Inf to Rhodesia.
Places 1 Transport in SZ38, 1 Tank in Australia, 1 Inf, 1 Art and 1 Fighter in Britain.
Japan first turn:
Ok, I want to buy 2 Transports 1 Fighter and 1 Inf or 3Transports and 2 Inf or 2 Transports 1 Inf 1 Art and save the rest.
I usually hit Pearl Harbor but with the British fleet amassed at Australia and with the complex I have to hit that fleet. So I send 1 Battleship, 2 AC, 4 Fighter, 1 Destroyer to attack. Lots of casualites on both sides here
Attack Buryatia with 5 Inf (Bringing 2 from Philippine Islands) , 1 Tank, 1 Fighter and Battleship clearing shot.
Attack China with 5 Inf 1 Fighter 1 Bomber
Leave FIC open (With no Complex in India it may draw out a unit from there and would be easily taken back, although that would give the Brits 3 more IPC).
Bring Sub up to SZ60 (Should have 1 Battleship, 4-5 Transports and 1 Sub on USA’s turn there).
Place Transports in SZ60 and land Units in Japan.
This is the best I think I can do although I hate attacking the Brit fleet. Last time I had horrible luck and scored no hits the first round. It continued till he had only his AC left.
If there is anything anyone can add, please do.
