Our little group is only 3 people, we drew straws and I was left with the axis. I was overwhelmed by the size of the game.
Since this was a learning experience, I did silly things like point out to the Britain player to look what was in england, and yes I had a transport and many aircraft on the french coast. After the Britain player completed his attacks on GB1 I showed him the move to get rid of some of the italian fleet. We ended up playing 6 turns before calling the game - Allied Victory.
My timing and judgement were completely off for this game. Took 2 turns to take out the French (never seen dice like that before). I couldn’t really get into the Japanese
part of the game, wasn’t sure exactly when to bring US and Russia into the game. I ended up attacking Russia J2, and US on J3. Germany waited till G4 to attack Russia.
