This Strategy Guide is based on the OOB Axis & Allies Global 1940 combined with the
Axis & Allies Global 1940 House Rules Expansion.
The purpose of these guidelines is to give players an insight of “how to use” the new units and rules that come into play with Axis & Allies Global 1940 House Rules Expansion.
Players should plan their own strategies, based on which Theatre of War is considered most important. As game experience with the Axis & Allies Global 1940 House Rules Expansion evolves during multiple games – so does the overall strategy for each Nation.
Two games are never the same – the variety and combination of units & rules are simply too numerous. Depending on your strategy, you have the option to purchase units for any situation.
The big challenge is to find the right combination – and number – of units, and how to deploy them.
For example, your Paratroopers are highly effective when used against weak enemy positions, attacks behind enemy lines – and as reinforcements to positions across sea zones etc.
Strategic planning can be just as fun – and challenging – as playing the game.
A prerequisite for a successful strategic plan is to be familiar with most of the Axis & Allies Global 1940 House Rules Expansion – but not necessarily everything in the rulebook.
Complete rulebook understanding will evolve during multiple games – but is not necessary to play the game at first.
It all begins with the Timetable. Once you are familiar with most units & rules that come into play during the game, you should use the Timetable as a quick reference guide – both when you are planning your strategy – and also during the game, to keep track of when and which units & rules come into play.
Note: Strategy is to plan for future operations on a large scale – in time as well as effort. So, when you plan your strategy, think ahead for the next several rounds of play.
A Strategy Guide for each of the following Nations is attached to this thread:
- Soviet Union
- United States
- United Kingdom
Initially, there is no Strategy Guide for China, Italy, ANZAC and France, since most of these Nations depend on the strategy from their major allied Nations.
