Just some general suggestions to improve gameplay:
- The tech of Heavy Bombers as originally released is generally considered to be too powerful. You could consider using Larry Harris Tournament Rules (LH is the guy who designed the game) version 2.1 - there’s a sticky thread for LHTR on the Revised forum.
- With 4 players you can split the countries with 2 players going for Axis, 2 for Allies, with an Allied player taking both the US/Russia. It might speed the game since the players with Germany and Japan now have more time to plan their moves instead of 1 player having to make all decisions for them.
Concerning strats for your game, well I’d focus more on having fun with your friends. Getting them interested in repeating the experience should be your nº1 goal. Then as they have more experience and games start speeding up you can focus more on game strategy
Ah, thanks. I had no idea about version 2.1 I’ll check that out.
Yeah that’s why I’m not being the pushy player guy. We’ll all talk about strategy and countries to attack, but I let them decide how many and number of troops.
Do you think I should try to hit Germany in WEU or hit NOR and push down to help Russia?
