RE: 42 russia defense
Okay, I played again and it took to long for british and american troops to get into europe. by the time they actually had a chance to make germany fight back russia was already gone and the german units were moving down toward india and africa.
Has anyone won as the allies in 1942?

42 russia defense
Okay, so I typically play A&A games with the same group of freinds. Typically i do very well with mostly wins. But this 1942 version I was wrecked as russia…. it was embarrasing how bad i did. partly because of bad rolling but i couldn’t stop germany at all. I was steam rolled. by the end of the 3rd turn moscow had been taken along with karilia and everything else on that side of the board. I had pulled my forces our of asia to help protect moscow. this was rediculous.
Any thoughts on strategy or do others have this same problem?
What I did the first turn was buy infantry and place 2 in karila 4 in causcus and the rest in my capitol.
For attacking i tried to get a buffer near caucus but it failed misserably. i didn’t take a single territory. and germany took karila on its first turn. UK liberated it on the 3rd turn but moscow was gone.
Also USA had only landed on goup of 2 tran, w/ all Inf and a fighter another group of 3 trans out of canada waiting for the next turn.
I should add that the axis went all tanks and infantry in europe. Germany would buy 10 inf or 10 tanks every turn and italy supplied inf to guard france and norther europe. they built no air or navy just infantry and tanks w/ a few fighters here and there.
Again I say we had no chance of even taking ground in europe even with usa and uk landing in the same territories and Russia was a joke.
P.S. We did well against japan. considring USA used its original fleet and britain buit 3 units out of inda every turn. China did great in our game. It held its own pretty well by just stopping japan and sneaking threw the weak points in japanese lines.
Also the UK had a huge fleet in the atlantic with 5 trans and plenty of protection. it had the ability to land its transports filled to the max each turn. but was still uneffective.
Mainly I need a russian strategy to hold of the german front.
Side note: is it worth it to keep allies out of russian territories for the extra 5 IPC, I don’t think it is?
