We’ve only played 3 games so far but we were off the opinion that the favour laid heavily on the allies. We’re play straight up box rules which ment victory conditions for the allies is the need to win both sides of the board.
Last game with the suggestions from these forums I player germany and sealion’d successfully, (took two tries) and italy stormed africa and was landing in south russian. But by the end of turn three the rookie playing Japan has entirely collapsed so we called the game in favour of the allies.
If we switched to the new rules of either axis power needs to reach its level of VC for an overall win might be most reasonable. In the above game I’m sure Germany could of delivered that and tokyo just had to sit huddled on its island and not get invaded.
