I usually wipe out british sea assets, in particular the sub in the med + battleship and the us trannie. Next send 2 guys to Africa. Wipe out Pearl Harbor and hit Australia first turn with Japan. This should get you till turn 3/4 where Germany is safe from US pressure. It helps to have good luck with the dice or the Axis are doomed.
After playing both versions, by far the Iron Blitz version is much much better, if not for the simple fact you can basically setup the game in any manner you wish. Just having the marines changes the way you do things in the game, the way you think thing through and whatnot. Plus as a bonus the AI isn’t completely horrid, it still is dumb and can be destroyed rather quickly but isn’t as bad as in just plain A&A.
yeah it works, on the MSN zone. i try to play it, but NOBODY ever plays blitz on the zone. i’ll be glad to play w/ you sometime (preferably on a weekday after about 4 o’ clock, if i don’t have very much homework) just drop me an email @ firstname.lastname@example.org
