I bid about the same way, only I’m hesitant to go under 8. If I really wanted Allies, I might bid 10 but 9 is the usual cutoff.
I bid 7 when i want axis, 9 when i want allies, and 8 if i don’t care. I would like to try a 10 bid with a German fighter though. would be really interesting to have an extra 5 fighters by round 2.(4 fighters for Germany’s 40 IPC start). I usually put my bid in the Ukraine of Africa just depends on my mood. A sub/transport bid would be interesting though.
If you’d like to try the fighter bid and the 4 fighter G1, I’d play you. I’ve never tried it or played against that sort of strategy.
sure, do you have triple a?
