I increaase the size of my map using photo shop. I forget the actual size, but it was about six feet long. I then divided up some of the land and sea units into smaller units. This will increase game play and the time. I did all this in photo shop. I then burnt it to CD and to it to Kinkos. They have a supper large color printer. I printed the whole thing and they laminated it to. Of course it cost me about $40 bucks, but it was worth it. I know have a real clean and clear color map with almost 1/2 more spaces and is 6 feet long by 4 feet (i think) and is laminated. I can use a dry erase pen on it if I want to and roll it up and take it anywhere. I also use a 6 large page claps (you can get them at any office supply store) and clap it to any table.
This is the only way to go!!!
You could make all kinds of maps.
Has any axis player won by capturing the US?
My brother in law was Germany and he was getting creamed by my other brother in law (US) and I (Russia), but he had a loaded axis transport just sitting in the Atlantic two squares away from the US for quite a few turns. The US eventually forgot it was sitting there and on one turn left the US exposed. Germany moved in with the one loaded transport and won the game.
In my experience, Russia has not won without additional Air Force.
I’m playing a game right now where all nations are restricted to territory value for build limit…Russia can only build five units per round to Germany’s ten.
I’ve sent Russia the British Bomber, built a fighter, and recieved three fighters and I’m about to convert two more…
…I’m still alive! I still have Lenningrad!
I’m gonna die! :lol:
…but I’m still alive and it’s almost round five!
It depends on the outcome of the firswt battle. As a German player, I try to capture Vborg and Leningrad in the first turn to take away lending area for fighters from England. Fighters are better to give to the Russians since they are cheaper, and they help defend agaisnt industrial bombing. If I play as an ally, I send all the initial fighter force to Russia, both British and American. I don’t donate the bombers, as they can help in Operation Torch, and industrial bombing.
