RE: Wizard of the coast is sending out additional playing pieces
Just got a response from them. I was polite but a bit greedy when it came to number of pieces requested.
Thank you for contacting us regarding your missing game pieces. Unfortunately, we are unable to place an order for the number of pieces requested, however.

You should receive it within 10 to 15 business days depending on your local postal services. We appreciate your understanding in this matter and please feel free to contact us with any other questions or comments.

RE: African Strats
I found that moving all the German units into Belgian Congo is a very effective strategy. It forces the Allies to group up and attack you which either results in their complete annihilation or leaves them so weak that the Ottomans will just storm the whole continent with minimal effort

RE: Is Switzerland the stepping stone to victory?
The game wants you to attack Switzerland as Germany, only 2 units defending and you can bring that stack of 11 infantry from Munich into it and be in Burgundy the next round
RE: The CP Playbook
When I played I took out the British fleet in the North Sea on Germany’s first turn. Britain spent the next 4 rounds building a fleet big enough to match the German fleet that I had been
stacking up in Kiel by 1 Battleship per turn. Russia had some damn lucky rolls in that it wiped out the German and Austro-Hungarian armies on the 2nd and 3rd rounds respectively and also had
RE: How is it?
How does it compare to G40?
Not nearly as long, all the powers have a major impact on the game and you have to plan your strategies further in advance. Naval combat is actually more frequent than in G40 as naval units aren’t nearly as costly to produce and subsequentially, mines aren’t as devastating.
RE: Why is Italy an allied power?
Triggering and causing a war are two different things. Franz Ferdinand’s assassination didn’t cause the war, it triggered it. Much like how the Zimmerman note triggered the war with the US
RE: Air Supremacy
Air Superiority saved Russia in my game and pretty much took out Austria-Hungary as a fighting force on the Eastern Front
