RE: Wildest Game you've ever played?
My nuttiest game was a “kill the USA first” strategy in Alpha+3. When you have Germany invading Brazil and Italy taking Panama, Mexico, and the West Indies it gets wierd. All we needed was for Japan to take Honolulu and we win… something he refused to do, throwing the German submarine fleet under the bus.
The idea was that if the USA was so focused defending Hawaii, he couldn’t afford to spend in the Atlantic, therefore 18 german subs there could convoy disrupt 35 bucks from them. Would’ve been beautiful if it had worked. My subs got pasted with the Italian navy as well. I was on the defensive from the Soviets, and Japan ended up taking Hawaii anyways!
RE: Axis biased
Putting history aside for a moment, my opinion is that it is Axis-biased.
This is based on three games played, and the bad guys took all three.
We’ll try a few different Allies strategies to see if they can pull it off. We haven’t seen USA go all in vs. Germany yet.
Dunno why it takes a few hours for you to play this, Bill.
We polished off a game in 1.5 hours flat.
Resources are scarce in this game, so don’t waste anything.
Keep in mind also that you can only build so much every turn.
The game we played was an Axis win, but I don’t think UK was played very effectively.
Go with the 2 capitals victory conditions.
