Yeah especially my last move as UK was a mistake. It was nice being able to shuttle fighters between Caucasus and English channel but I couldn’t simultaneously support the US landing in France. That dynamic was a bit new to me. I did think the fighter build was sometimes thin but I sort of liked the promise of it. I’d try it again.
Your Japan play by the way… nicely executed. Your army size snuck up on me because I was expecting the attack a turn earlier. In other games I’ve had success with Russian forces re-attacking India but I threw that chance away with the fighter build. The more I think about the fighter the more I regret it. 4 infantry would have made a nice buffer against some of Japan’s early ground.
When we play next we might as well play on the same map.
