Buy more infantry. That will save you, my friend. And also attack Western Europe, and perhaps, if you’re adventureous, Eastern Europe.

RE: The real set-up
I’ve said a few things about what I felt was strange/in error , in this thread:
Anyhow, if there are only a few pieces that need to be added, and no pieces deleted, I would hope for the following (based on three games playing the GenCon setup), sorted from in order of importance to play balance:
1) Addition of US naval units in the Pac!
I’m afraid we’ll see few/no US Pac games, unless this one turn out to be true…
2) Addition of starting Infs to China
3) Some more addition to UK navy
Don’t quite know where, but maybe the Pac…Just feels a tad bit weak, right now.
4) Some more land units added to WUS and EUS
Not of very big importance. I just think that there are an Inf left out in WUS and an Arm left out in EUS…
5) Redistribution of Infs on The Jap Pac Islands
Don’t know, they just feel wrong now…
1 Island empy (Iwo)
1 Island has 1 ftr (For)
1 Island has 1 inf (Oki)
1 Island has 3 inf (Car
Actually, that’s just about it…
1 & 2 are important. The rest are minor issues.
Hope I’ll be correct
I agree. This would make the game better. And Bluestroke, I agree. The one who gets A&A 50 first must spill their guts to all of us.
RE: The Italian overrun tactic
Italy should attack the Russians because that takes pressure off of Germany in their invasion of Russia and it expands Italy’s income base, which it needs to do very quickly before the Allies take over Italy.
After Italy, secures, Med and Africa?
A slight delay, allows the German Player some time to build his strike force.
I would use this tactic. It pressures USSR Stalingrad IC and UK India IC.
We have used this overrun technique with UK and USA often enough. It will be nice, now the Axis can use this same tactic. I also believe this provides a strong argument for the Southern route to Moscow.
