I usually buy 6 infantry, 2 artillery, and 1 fighter on turn 1
Does this mean your opponent is threatening London on G1 by buying air or naval units?
(also, that UK buy exceeds their budget)
Italy will hit Africa and build up, he never moves the Italian fleet but consolidates his forces.
What do you mean by “hit Africa”?
And are you attacking both SZ96 and SZ97 on UK1?
the British in the Pacific can’t get into the war unless Japan declares, and he never does, making U.S and Britain wait it out
You mean, Japan doesn’t declare until round 3?
The British/ANZAC are allowed to make an unprovoked declaration of war against Japan at any point. The US will be able to get national objective money on US3 Collect no matter what, so you may want to find a way to do some damage to Japan on UK2.
No, he never threatens London, he knows if a Sealion is done U.S. enters the war, he always avoids getting the U.S. in until turn 4, no matter what.
As to Africa, I use the industrial complex in southern Africa to build up mech infantry and maybe a tank to send up north to hit Italian forces, he usually never sends to much into Africa unless my die rolls are bad, he usually goes after the neutral territories as Italy for the IPC’s and if I don’t destroy the Italian navy to hard then he uses them for amphibious landings into Egypt.
As to Japan he never tries to attack Britain, I usually do declare war with British Egypt and Anzac but find hitting his japs in China a bit hard, so a second part question would be what to get in India to help hurt the japs in China.
