Well, I ordered the game from a fairly fast company (Board Games Superstore) and I usually receive it in 2 Business Days, so I would expect it either today or tomorrow. I like the idea of the aesthetically pleasing red Japan pieces. Can’t wait to play it!

RE: Impossible for Allies to Win
I;ve played three games and I have only had one German victory and it was in 4 turns. I played a REALLY passive Russia that game and he just marched right in. I lend leased a fighter from UK -> Karelia -> Russia and from Malta -> Palestine -> Stalingrad but that really didnt turn out so hot.
My opponent’s beginning placement for Germany was 2 Armor in Poland keeping 2 IPCs and my Allies went for 4 Infantries: 2 in East Poland, 1 in Vyburg and 1 in Moscow.
Well, basicly what me and one of my buddies did was that we agreed that since the United States was pretty much doing nothing and it was hard to move their units, we just dropped the United States and on the collect income pahse, distributed the money evenly across the Allied AND Axis powers. As for Russia, I really haven’t thought about it.
RE: Axis Wins/Losses
Well, between the games I played on my own and the games i’ve played with a few buddies of mine (total of 7), I have seen pretty much a split. 4 Axis wins, 3 allies wins BUT, all the Allied wins were with Fortune Cards, all the games played with normal cards were won by the Axis.
RE: Using Germany's Mediterranean Navy
I personally go for a quasi split. I usually send my Battleship in to kill Malta and use my transport to send over the two Infantry in Southern Italy and drag them over to Libya as well as moving the units in Tunis. I move the infantry in Morocco over to Algeria and my Destroyer from Tyrennian Sea with the sub in the South Atlantic goes to kill the UK Destroyer is Gibraltar Strait. I normally leave the units in the Eastern Med. alone and see what the opponent does with them.
Pacific compared to Europe…
Hey everyone, I recently bought A&A Europe and I am looking at buying another A&A game, would you say that Pacific is a good buy? I have gotten mixed reviews and was split between Europe and Pacific before I got Europe. So is Pacific worth it, or should I got with another? (Besides Europe I have Revised and D-Day)
