How many rounds does the average game last?
I play A&A with some friends, some of which are still learning… but one player in particular never plays past the third round… he KNOWS the game is going to end and tell me how… I ususally laugh because he is completely wrong… but anyhow… I am just wondering what the average length is since its been sooo ling since i’ve played with non-quitters.
RE: Need help with UK1
In the war… britian won with air force… such seams to be the same for a&a. I would suggest 2 planes, 2 infantry =30 ipc’s. now for germany. germany will be attacking russia… but at the same time going for africa… basically you have a decision to make in he first round… germany or japan. this decision will reflect on a sacrafice you will have to make… lose africa (8ipcs – i think) or india (3 ipcs).
Combat: tank from eastern canada
2 inf from britian
plane from britan
battleship for offshore bombardment
all of this is attacking finland norway
*industrial bomb germany!!! hit them economically!!!
by doing this you will eliminate one of the german fronts and give you an access point into europe
for non-combat… move forces from india via transport to africa along with your plane.
remaining planes from finland battle go to karelea
not the map looks as such… india is left open for japan to take… but thats not to worry, because you have cut off the german blood line (US moves 2 inf and 1 jet in east africa first turn to help fortify). with this done, UK can now concentrate on pumping military into europe and aid russia in fending off germany.
I strongly suggust buying AT LEAST 1 plane per turn for UK as the defend great in karelia, and can do good battles … first round then retreat to weaken german forces before russia goes for tactical strikes.
with the map like this, the us doesnt have to worry much about aiding in germany and can concentrate on Japan… forcing japan to divide between navy and mainland troops. this buys time for russia to gain ground and eventually overthrow germany.
this works for me anyways… diversionary tactics…
