While I haven’t really thought of it that way, I totaly agree with ncscswitch. However my reason is that not only do you help germany by weakening the uk, but if the US decides to try and build a navy to defeat japan you are pulling valuable resorces away from the atlantic, while japan is still quite capable of taking russia and defending its waters at the same time.

RE: Axis and Allies 2nd ed without bids, Axis Advantage, or RR
First of all I would just like to say thank you all, you’ve given me some great ideas. As to my game, in the end my friends wanted to try a rematch me as the allies them as axis except this time with axis advantage and russia restricted. Unfortunatly for them I am still a superior player, and I crushed them even after a devestating first turn where the germans had 7 tanks and 2 infantry in karelia.
Next time my friends have decided I am to be the Axis.
Axis and Allies 2nd ed without bids, Axis Advantage, or RR
Hi, I recently found a new group of people to play with and they had never seen the allies win, and were aghast at the idea of axis advantage or Russia restricted. So naturally I politely offered to play as the allies without axis advantage or Russia restricted. My strategy was simple, Germany must die. First to fall was southern Europe from a UK transport they had forgotten, next the US invaded Western Europe, and to top it off Russia moved into Eastern Europe. Needless to say 4 hours after the game had started they were discussing whether or not to allow axis advantage and Russia restricted into the game.
Well, they have now stubbornly decided that they want me to be the axis and to see if I can defend against my beautiful stratagem, which quite honestly I am having a hard time figuring out how to do. I am not sure if I can convince them to allow me axis advantage or Russia restricted but I am hopeful.
I was wondering if anyone out there knew of a strategy that would stop all three allies going against Germany without bids and possibly without axis advantage and Russia being able to attack the first turn.
My thoughts were to build all infantry and one fighter every round with Germany (praying for axis advantage) and after a first turn extension of power simply trying to hold mainland Europe. With Japan completely ignoring the US, building an I.C. in either French indo china or Kwangtung (possible both), and essentially taking as much of Asia and Africa as you possible can. I do not really see this being very effective however.
Anyways, thanks for reading my post, any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
A question about bids
Hi, I hate to ask this knowing it is probably answered somewhere, but I couldn’t find an answer when I looked around. I’m new to the site and I’ve read alot of the forums and you discuss bids with the axis, unfortuantly I am not clear about what bids are. I assume a 25 bid means you give the axis 25 more I.P.C.'s to start the game, if I’m wrong please let me know. Also is there a place where all the abreveations that are used on here are listed?
