I find that playing only one ally is pretty boring (specifically the UK). Nowadays we usually all just form a team and don’t have individual countries. As long as everyone is on the same level of play it pretty much works out, and if there are any disagreements you can always consult the die to arbitrate. We usually have a designated roller for each country just so we can claim the largest snake-eyes roller, but otherwise a country’s actions are a teams decision.
While you may think…
Anything with two heads is a freak.
I would agree. I think what most people need to realize is that the axis and the allies are each a “thing”, and playing either of them with two heads, let alone three, is going to result in a problem. If not socially, than certainly tactically.
Of course, it’s always fun to have your very own country that you make all decisions about, but I assure you that germany buying 2 bombers every round is likely to upset me as japan more than me being able to call him an idiot for 30 minutes before he makes that buy. :evil:
