The game already (slightly) favors the Axis, and you wanna nerf US…?

RE: Should this game have a non combat move phase?
This sounds like a good idea. I play with a lot of new players, many of whom are confused by the “units can move 2 spaces, except when they can’t (except for fighters).”
They’ve always had an easier time with 42.2’s NCM.
RE: How to save Italian fleet
I still think the best way to get the brits into their most cautious mode, is GE buying nothing GE1. If the Uk gets agressive, GE2 can produce a deadly force for SL GE3. Even Barbarossa is still a very good option.
But what’s stopping UK from doing the same thing? Buy nothing, run Taranto, and wait til UK2 to respond to a Sealion threat. Seems like a lot of German initiative is being sacrificed with little payoff.
RE: 2nd Edition Wish List
Would love some NOs.
Would like to see Axis navy encouraged.
Tech? Maybe if they did it a la 50th Anniversary?
Much improved USW. I mean, Global did it perfectly. And it was SUCH a big deal for Germany in WW1.
Bigger Western front. And fix the map so that the seam of the boards runs through the Med, and not Europe. Seriously, what the heck?
RE: Maximum number of players?
We’ve had a lot of success with 4 players;
~Britain/US (UK is huge, so the player doesn’t mind waiting through the US turns)
We might also swap US for Italy in this setup.
And I agree, France IS boring, with only 1 real option. Stack the Western front and wait to get bailed out.
RE: Global 1940 is the best Axis & Allies game
Anyway, yes, I am actually losing interest in G40 now. A little too big. It’s too busy. Sweet spot is somewhere between AA50 and G40.
Bigger isn’t always better.
Hear, hear. I have yet to enjoy a f2f game of G40. China and ANZAC are the bane of my existence as I wait for my turn to come around again. Playing 10 hours to get through 6 rounds is disappointing.
Now a game whose complexity falls between AA50 and G40? THERE’s something I could get behind.
RE: Is it balanced??
USA lost the 1 move Canada chuck
Now it both costs more and takes longer for the USA to make a real impact
This cannot be understated. It REALLY slows down the America. I didn’t used to mind US making about the same as Germany, but now it is hard for them to have an impact. Add to this the fact that Germany can sink the US Atlantic fleet on turn 1, and America just got a lot harder to be effective.
RE: Field Marshal Games - Notice to our Friends and Customers
Are you still going to get more combat dice? Just curious.
I was just looking at this topic to ask the same question. I’ve got German and French dice, and would love to fill out my collection.
