Here are a couple things that I don’t like about the 1942 board:
1. Why are the Americans in China in the first place?
China had most of its support given by the US during WW2. Due to the order of play to give to China to the UK or Russia would unbalance the initial situation on Asia towards the Allies.
2. Why does Britain own practically all of Africa?
The UK is given the French and Belgian colonies, plus Italian East Africa, which was conquered in 1940. With the exception of the Portuguese and Spanish colonies, nearly all of Africa was within Allied hands during the war.
3.Japan is as big as Australia.
4. Africa looks like a Neanderthal’s head with a squashed noggin.
I’m sure we could also find all other interesting features on the AA50 and AAP/E40 maps…
5.The Atlantic is three sea zones across.
Still takes 2 rounds to bring units from the US to Europe. On Classic it only took 1.
6. Where did the name Evenki National Okrug come from?
Okrug = Russian/Soviet administrative division (like a province or a state).
