I am grateful for your comments. Therefore i like to answer your questions.
As Germany i bought for starters only artillery, later mostly just tanks and mech. I lost some planes due bad dice, so i took moscow with just one tank, two tacs and 1 strategic bomber left. Germany has 79 IPCs in the treasury. The allies were keen to do KGF, which was noticeable about round 3, so I took some precautions to that event buying some inf etc. round 4, 5 and 6.
Russia defended well, but didn�t move troops from Leningrad back to Moscow. This did the trick, actually. I kind of lured him into it. This worked quite well.
Japan just took India kind of following the idea of Submersed Elk with his “J2/I2” plan. It worked quite well. America never really interfered in the Pacific, so Japan had nothing else to do than conquering all spots possible to reach. One by one. Islands taken in J3, 2 MinorICs built, too. China got smashed in Round 4, India J6. Most battles were extra-safe.
Japan bought 1 AC, 2 des, 2 trn, 1 fig and 4 inf. Still not placed, income is at 75 sth.
Russia tried as well to split Japanese forces helping out in China. It took 2 rounds to knock this big stack out, one Russian inf still being left there in manchuria.
The UK had some problems getting into the game, because Italy disturbed its progress in africa just by active defense. Which means attacking only when necessary and with good odds just for delaying movements.
I forgot to mention that those british troops in the caucasus and yugoslavia are mere ideas of the british player of future moves.
Italy had some bad dice at the beginning, never made more than 18 IPCs but helped out in the east can-opening.
In denkmark the US has 6 inf, 2 mech, 3 tnk. Income at 85. Played well, but split his forces.
ANZAC only forgot one NO.
I did some testing in TripleA and could win as Japan taking Australia easily, even with an US poised to save it from this. Germany could still generate an income above 40 for some rounds due to sticking to moscow etc. My plan is/was just to hold and defend actively until Japan would eventually win.
I hope this game can be continued one day…
