How is 1940 Pacific going to BALANCE with 1940 Europe?


  • Will there be NO’s in this game ?

  • Official Q&A

    Yes.


  • Once the Japanese have all of China and India and Australia, and the Germans and Italians can attack the US, the game is over anyway. Conquering the US is feasible, but it won’t be that deciding factor that turns the tide. The axis will have already gotten the permanent upper hand.

    Most likely.

    @SgtBlitz:

    I assume if the Japan player is smart they’ll nip India in the bud as early as possible while the US isn’t in the war.  But even with most of her NOs nearly taken, how is Japan supposed to compete againt a a one-front USA?

    Japan cannot attack UK territories without triggering the US entrance into the war.

    This is why the invasion of Hong Kong occured December 8th, 1 day after Pearl Harbour, because the Japanese knew that once they attacked the UK or ANZAC the US would not be long to hit them back.
    I expect the move for Japan will reflect this, as it does in J1 of AA50 with a simultaneous attack on Hawaii, Hong Kong, and the Philipenes.

    As to how will they compete? I dont know, the US is a long way away from India… I can’t wait to find out!

    It will be fun to see how a forced KJF strategy works within this new structure.

    WOW! Color me shades of plastic pieces. I just found out about these games today. I can’t wait!

    What, did you just crawl out from under a rock.

    under a rock in a cave in South-American rainforest 😄

    Yes, but this scenario ISN’T possible with the Pacific game, as the US has only ONE FRONT to deal with.  There has to be some rule that lets Japan grab as much as she can BEFORE the US enters the war b/c she’ll HAVE to have equal footing for there to be a “fair” game.  Otherwise its just fighting against the dice the whole time.

    No doubt xzorn was talking about the combined game.
