I still use the money of one of our older AA games, not sure which one tbh
But it depends really, I sometimes find it just as good having count with pen and paper just writing it all.
Me and some mates will go down playing it the moment it arrives!
Been working our butts through Revised, Pacific, 1942 and D-day over the last 1,5 years, and we are really looking forward to this arriving!
me and some friends have recently started playing A&A revised atleast once a week. Over the course of a couple of months we’ve developed a “strategy” for Axis , that the allied side just cannot seem to counter. This is standard game, with no additional options. (Superfortresses etc.)
What we do is ;
R1 ; Basically a 1-2 territory attack. Either stacking Karelia\Cauca\Russia, or attack West Russia and\or Belorussia. Buying 8 inf or 6art. Retreat inf to Yakut to prevent bombardment on russian seashore.
G1 ; buy 8 tanks. All available units attacking Karelia , including fighters that can reach apart from balkans one. West Europe fighter fly as close to russian front as possible. The standard attack on Anglo-Egypt aswell. Standard Sub attack on sz1.
UK1 ; IC in India, and transport + Tank\art for britain. move all remaining inf in middle-east to india with the help of transport. To protect it max from japan. Sink transport in sz59 with fighter and optionally the destroyer from india aswell. Send 2 troops from Australia to New Guinea. Try to land troops in Norway, or support russia in karelia.
JP1 ; 2 IC’s buy. Pearl Harbour 2. Sub from sz45 to UK transport in New Guinea(if Uk attack succeed) Land inf+tank in Alaska to divert USA a little. All possible planes to India, including all possible land units. Land all planes in french indo-china. India have fallen all 4 times we’ve tried. Pull Manchuria troops to Kwangtung, if russians pulled they’re border back, if not leave it as it is. Place ICs in French Indochina & Kwangtung
USA1 ; 2transports, 2inf, 2tank, 1fighter. all in eastern us. Normally a amphibious assault on Algeria. Bomber to Britain, fighter to sink german sub in sz1.
Basically what follows are ;
R2 ; try to build up defence. Take some low-guarded german territories if there’s an opening.
G2 ; Caucasus falls. Allout attack there with everything including every aircraft. Russia on its heels. 2 tanks blitz most of africa.
UK2 ; 3 tanks India, try to attack\fortify norway. Push towards karelia.
J2 ; buys 6 tanks. take china with tanks + all air support. Move inf from Kwangtung to manchuria again. 1 land unit to persia from india. Place tanks in Asia two IC’s (3 if UK build in India, spread as you like)
US2 ; Push Libya. SBR germany. Fighters to algeria. land more troops in algeria.
By round 3 germany is at moscow gates, aswell as japan sittign in sinkiang ready to blitz moscow. Russia falls in R4. Britain normally follows in round 7-8 from a massive Sea Lion and a full Luftwaffe attack. Japan pushes US from africa, and starts navy build for US war. Round 8 is normally when Allies gives in and accepts defeat.
This blitzkrieg with germany and japan just going all out on the mainland , makes for a fast victory that me and my friends just can’t find and counter to. UK\US builds are the ones we really are unsure of, ive just given examples of what might happen.
Anyone can find a\knows a counter for it ? Would really help us, as for now it just seems to overpowered for the axis.
