When playing either Global or Europe 1940 does any one know why Alpah 3 deleted the British European N.O. for keeping the map clear of German
I’ve been playing a houserule where (playing Europe 1940 only) if
there are no German U’s in the Atlantic or small part of the Pacific showing the Brits get 3 IPC’s, if there are no AXIS U’s in the Med. they get 2 more and finally if there are no German U’s in the Indian Ocean they get 1 more for a maximum bonus of 6 IPC’s.
……and while we’re on house rules strategic bombers now cost only 10
and attack (on land or sea) at only 2 and defend at 0 but alpha 3 rules for SBR’s stay the same.
Battleships now attack either at one die @5 or less or two dice at 3 or less (but one die of 4 or less for amph. assaults) with the owner making the choice in each battle and they defend at the same #'s with the same choice.
Finally, here are our new “bargain” prices we play with:
Subs and Transports: 6
All land units stay the same.
We’ve played several Globals and one Europe with all the above houserules and not only were the games balanced but the lower prices made for the intoduction of a lot more pieces and more battles which made things a lot more interesting and exciting.
Any feed back? Try the above and let me know how it goes.
