In the current game, we have played about 8 rounds, and the Germans and Japanese are still holding out. The various IPC tweaks that they have gotten have been very important in keeping them in the game. Weather so far has not been a factor, but the boost to the Japanese and German fighters has been important. The Japanese received Jet Fighters through a scientific breakthrough even card, and the Germans drew improved air to ground weaponry, giving each of their fighters two dice rolls when attacking ground units (the fighter can only score one hit, but it does improve the odds of hitting).
Play balance appears to be pretty good, although more testing on that needs to be done. I need to do more work on the Axis cards, and make sure that the USSR player is not left out. The Pacific cards look like they are about set except for a couple of the Japanese. The Revised will be similar to the Classic cards with a couple of changes to reflect the presence of the destroyer and the change to the Heavy Bomber technology, while the Europe cards will likely be derived from the Revised set, except include the convoy routes. Those do make for some good possibilities. Once those are done and playtested, I will be able to put them out as an expansion for Classic, Revised, Pacific, and Europe. Not sure about doing anything for Anniversary, given that it may only be available for a limited time. Also, need to finish work on the rules for adding Italy to the Europe game, Classic, and Revised. Classic is going to be tough, because of the limited territories on the map. It will be a nice challenge though.
