I ate the whole thing...

Apparently The Axis & Allies site over at Avalon Hill is going to be phased out soon. A new one will replace it. If you have something over there that you don’t want to be evaporated into thin air then cut and paste it, and bring it over here so that it is not lost forever.

Final Note of House Rules:
One: to speed up play, I am dumping the rule of the advantage of defense for cities/mountain territories. This will probably affect the U.S.A. forces more than the invaders initially, then again later in the game, it would make it harder for the invaders to hold onto their captured cities. All combat for attack & defense happens at the same time!-think Axis & Allies-*

Two: at start of game U.S.A. can place all their partisans, out ready for combat whenever space you wish to place them(so in round one, you can have an gateway city defended by 5 units).

Three: all cards are played once, a player can hold onto them{bank the card(s)}, and, use them on the turn as it fits their use, the cards are never recycled!

Four: Auxiliary units like the fighter jets, old style copters, &, so forth are placed whenever needed for ONLY round one(so that gateway city may be defended by more than 5 units, or, attacked by more than five units). These secondary, usually older type of units, are NEVER replaced!

*In a more smaller campaign like "Battle for the Mile High City"(Siege of Denver), your troopers & mobile units probably have towed or self propelled guns, with mortar crews & pre-registered guns & heavy machine gun nests, & snipers, &, traps to take a good toll of any Western & Southern Invaders. Before the Invaders can even get in range to fire back! So I leave the defense has an advantage for a smaller scale battle/campaign, like the mythical Mile High scenario. For the larger scale campaign I'll just use A & D fire the same time, thanks, Pellulo!

The initial 60 unit setups are as follows, 12 Armor, 24 Infantry(same number of partisians for U.S. only), 9 Mobil Units/A.P.C., 6 bombers, &, 9 copters. Plus the twelve or so irregular units for U.S.A. & Invaders.

Starting with the Western Invaders(rotated latter to the Southern & Eastern Invaders) the setups are changed to this, for increase Armor scenario:

32 Armor(increased by 20, ten from each of the other invaders)
12 Infantry(decrease by 12, six going to each of the other invaders)
03 Mobil Units(decrease by 6, three going to each of the other invaders)
05 Bombers(decrease by 1, going to the Southern Invader)
08 Copters(decrease by one, going to the Eastern Invader),
for a toal of 60 units.

Could a massive armor push, starting in the West(then South, then East, for other scenarios) knock out America faster than normal?

Note: due to time constrictions, the results will be noted, but, the play by play commentary may be bypassed, thanks, Pellulo

GAME 1:
Intial 60 unit setups are as follows, 12 Armor, 24 Infantry(same number of partisians for U.S. only), 9 Mobil Units/A/P.C., 6 bombers, &, 9 copters.

Starting with the Western Invader
the setups are changed to this:
32 Armor(increased by 20, ten from each of the other invaders)
12 Infantry(decrease by 12, six going to each of the other invaders)
03 Mobil Units(decrease by 6, three going to each of the other invaders)
05 Bombers(decrease by 1, going to the Southern Invader)
08 Copters(decrease by one, going to the Eastern Invader),
for a toal of 60 units. Could a massive armor push, starting in the West, knock out America faster than normal?


House ruled, in order to give a bit of variation, about 12 irregular units are given to the invaders(4 per each invader) & U.S.A. forces(get 13 units). It gives a little bit of variety for land & air combat. Along with they are nonrepaceable, &, you may used them anytime you want and any number of them. For example all twelve can be included in the first wave of attacks in Round One, so you have 24 units attacking for each invader. Also the U.S.A. can place all thirteen on the front lines &/or reserves behind the front lines.

The units are: Fighter-Bombers moves 3 for maneuver & invasion movements, uses white dice, &, choice of any units,

Medium Bomber moves 3 for maneuver & invasion, uses blue dice, &, choice of any units(A/D with a fighter-bomber & bomber, dice is downgraded to white), choice of units,

Hover copters are just older versions of the copters used in the game, moves 2 for maneuver & invasion movements, uses white dice against land units & other copters(againt any other air units, dice are downgraded to red), choice of units,

Turbo Bladed Helicopter(U.S.A. only), this oldest style copter has the main blade centered over the body, moves 2 for maneuver & 2 for invasion movements, uses white dice against any land units, &, red dice against any air units, choice of units,

One man copter(partisian use only), moves 1 for manuver & invasion movements, uses white dice against any foot, and, red for mobile units only, order of casualties is foot & mobile units,

Mobile Gun(on a large pickup truck, partisian use only), moves 1 for manuver & 1 for invasion movements, uses white dice against any foot and mobile units, downgraded to red dice against any tanks and copters(cannot engage any fighters or bombers), order of casualties foot, mobile units, tanks, &, copters,

APC Carrier(for USA only) older style mobile unit, will not engage fighters and bombers, uses red dice,

Road Recon. Cars(partsians only, think Mad Max), maneuver of one & invasion movement of one, on the attack only uses white dice, &, if attack first uses red dice to defend itself, cannot engage fighters and bombers,

Mobile Missiles moves only one space at a time, uses blue dice on the attack, if attacked & it is not in a combine arms/city/mountain area, it defends on a red dice, destroys any unit(including laser).


Final Note of House Rules:
One: to speed up play, I am dumping the rule of the advantage of defense for cities/mountain territories. This will probably affect the U.S.A. forces more than the invaders initially, then again later in the game, it would make it harder for the invaders to hold onto their captured cities. All combat for attack & defense happens at the same time!-think Axis & Allies-

Two: at start of game U.S.A. can place all their partisans, out ready for combat, whenever space you wish to place them. Excemption is no more than two, in any coastal city, only for round one(so in round one, you can have an gateway coastal city defended by 7 units, five regular units & 2 partisans).

Three: all cards are played once, a player can hold onto them{bank the card(s)}, and, use them on the turn as it fits their use, the cards are never recycled!

Four: Auxiliary/irregular units like the fighter jets, old style copters, &, so forth are placed whenever needed for ONLY round one(so that gateway city may be defended by 8 units-five regular, 2 partisans, &, 1 auxiliary unit-, or, attacked by more than five units from an invader, like five regular unit & a auxiliary unit). These secondary, usually older type of units, are NEVER replaced! They are not on the cards!


Round ONE: Western Yellow Invader/Asian People's Republic Setup from the sea, into undefended land in front of Seattle, of 3 tanks, trooper, &, bomber. All but bomber enters undefended space in front of Seattle, while the bomber enters air space over Portland. Next is a trooper, 3 tanks, &, hovercopter, versus, the defenders of Portland of 2 partisans, trooper, tank, &, one man partisan copter. Here the bomber from the group in area in front of Seattle is over Portland, joined also from that group of 3 tanks, to help attack Seattle. Losses U.S. one man copter, &, hover tank(with the remaining trooper & 2 partisans retreated), &, Western Invader losses trooper, &, 2 tanks(also the hover copter & bomber join trooper in taken area in front of Seattle). Portland is taken, &, Seattle under seige!

Meanwhile in the coastline below Portland, a old style fighter bomber, &, medium bomber fail to destroy defending partisan(who takes out fighter bomber). The medium bomber lands in Portland.

Also on the coastline above San Fransico an fighter bomber & old style tracked tank take out defending partisan(for lost of tank). Fighter bomber lands with forces in front of Seattle.

U.S.A. counterattack against the West Coast Invader ONLY, laser in Chicago takes out bomber in front of Seattle. Bomber, trooper, mobile unit, sortie from Seattle to area in front of the city, joined by 2 more bombers courtersy of Minneapolis(due to cards), versus, Western Invader trooper, hover copter, &, fighter bomber. Losses Western Invader all, &, U.S.A. 2 bombers & trooper. Siege of Seattle lifted!

Meanwhile trooper from Las Vegas heads for West Coast, while trooper & partisan car heads for L.A. from Salt Lake city. While two more hover copters are flying in from Minneapolis(due to cards).

Local milita has pratically wiped out the first wave of invaders, but, yet Western Invaders can pratically replace everything they has lost.

Round Five: Western Invader attacks with theses forces of mobile unit, 8 hover tanks & 3 hover copters, &, 4 bombers, versus, U.S.A. defending with 4 partisans.
Losses Western Invaders mobile unit & hovercopter, &, losses U.S.A. all. Forces have connected with forces from the Southern Invaders, &, two bombers destroy a mobil unit & hover copter in Rocky Mountains, for no lost. Another two destroy in the south a mobile unit, for no lost(theses two bombers land in Southern occupied San Antonio).

Losses U.S.A. 0, &, losses of Western Invaders 3 hover tanks.
Retaken 0.

Southern Invader attacks with these forces 8 troopers(two from card action), 4 copters, &, 2 bombers, versus, U.S.A. forces of 3 troopers and 3 partisans, &, hover copter. Losses Southern Invader of 2 troopers, &, U.S.A. partisan.

Taken none, but, drove out forces defending Dallas & sieging New Orleans.

Counterattacking U.S.A. forces of 2 troopers & 3 partisans, hover tank, and, 3 lasers. Losses U.S.A. 2 troopers & partisan & Southern Invaders 2 troopers, hover copter, &, bomber.

Retaken none, the last three cities controlled by U.S.A. in the south, has only one unit to protect each city.

Eastern Invader attacks with these forces of 8 troopers, mobile unit, 3 copters, &, bomber, versus, U.S.A. forces of 3 troopers. Losses Eastern Invader a trooper, &, U.S.A. forces 2 troopers. From all cities in Eastern Seaboard, there are no defending units.

Meanwhile partisan defending Memphis is destroyed, &, partisan unit defending New Orleans is destroyed for no losses.

Taken none, but, many cites have no defenders, as U.S.A. forces are reduce to just a hover tank & trooper.

Counterattacking U.S.A. forces of trooper & 6 lasers, versus, Eastern forces of 7 troopers, mobile unit, &, bomber. U.S.A. cannot use its two cards this turn, due to a Eastern forces card not allowing it. Losses U.S.A. none, &, Eastern forces 2 troopers(due to lasers, 2 units are retreated).

Retaken none. Invaders control 14 cities.

Round Six: Western Invader attacks with these forces of 5 tanks, two hover copters & 4 bombers, versus, just lasers for now. Two bombers in San Antonio fail to destroy U.S. hover tank in Dallas. Forces have pretty much overrun the Rockies, on outskirts of Denver.

Taken 0. U.S.A. counterattacks the same Western forces make up with 2 troopers(from card) & 3 lasers. Losses U.S.A. none, &, Western Invaders lose their last 5 hover tanks(3 due to lasers, &, 2 due to a card), &, a bomber. The Western Invaders have just air units left, no ground forces to take cities.

Southern Invader attacks with these forces 4 troopers, 3 hover copters, &, bomber, versus, U.S.A. forces of 3 troopers & 3 partisans(from cards) & hover tank. Losses Southern Invader a trooper, &, U.S.A. a hover tank.

Taken Dallas.

U.S.A. counterattacks with 3 troopers & 3 partisans, and, 3 lasers, versus, Southern Invaders 3 troopers, 3 hover copters, &, bomber. Losses U.S.A. partisan & trooper, &, Southern Invader 2 troopers, and, trooper & copter & bomber from lasers.
Also another trooper is lost, taking out a Eastern Invader trooper & hover copter sieging Memphis. Again the Southern Invader is reduce to air units only.

Eastern Invader attacks with theses forces of 5 troopers, mobile unit, 2 copters & one old style hover copter, &, bomber, versus, 2 troopers & partisan, and, mobile unit & 2 hover tanks(all but for a trooper from cards). Losses Easter Invaders a mobile unit & bomber, &, U.S.A. a trooper & hover tank. Also in Southern Front, the defending unit(a partisan) in Memphis is destroyed for no lost. In the south is where all invaders have interacted.

U.S.A. counterattacks with trooper & partisan, mobile unit & hover tank, and, 6 lasers, versus, Eastern Invaders 5 troopers & 3 hover copters(one an old style unit). Losses U.S.A. partisan & mobile unit, &, Eastern Invaders all but for a hover copter & trooper.

Retaken the capital, &, siege of Philly and Memphis is broken.

Invaders control 14 cities(from a high of 15), all of the west(sans 2 territories), half of the Rockies Mountains area(no cites), except for 2 cities & 4 territories all of the south, zero in the plains states, &, 3 cities & 7 territories in the east.


If the game went another round, &, with reinforcements of 7 more partisans from the cards, the invaders would be outnumbered. Also having to face 10 lasers, and, with only one land unit(a trooper) most likely no more cites would fall(it would reverse as U.S. forces would be reoccupying lost cites, letting the lasers take out the remaining invaders).

A major U.S. political victory, as all invaders would leave peacefully(leaving behind their equipment, to be junked later), each side to itself to rebuild(a Marshall Plan for & by the U.S.A. & allies), a resurgent NATO(as the cards state one of the attackers was "Soviet", imagining their was fighting between NATO & Warsaw pact forces ), &, the political association of the invaders to be disbanded. Also with the Lasers to prod the invaders, dampens any urge for them to try to escalate the conflict to any use of N.B.C.

Finally U.S.A. laser system to be expanded, and, to be placed under U.N. control for against any alien/meteor risk from space(to be completed by 2210 A.D.).

Well the plan for a massive armor push, from the west fizzle out. It was not till Round Three that a major breakout began to finally occur, still with plenty of distance to cover. If 3-4 more tanks had survive to Round Six, the cites of Denver(with a Laser) & Colorado Springs would have fallen.

Now if the Southern Invader would have had the forces for a massive armor push & the same house rules:

Set up for the Southern Invaders(rotated a latter game for the Eastern Invaders) the setups are changed to this:
32 Armor(increased by 20, ten from each of the other invaders)
12 Infantry(decrease by 12, six going to each of the other invaders)
03 Mobil Units(decrease by 6, three going to each of the other invaders)
05 Bombers(decrease by 1, going to the Western Invader)
08 Copters(decrease by one, going to the Eastern Invader), -along with the use of four irregular units-,
for a total of 60 regular units.
Could a massive armor push, starting in the South, knock out America faster than normal?*

*Note due to time constraints, only the final results of a massive armor push will be reported by round.

Round One: Losses Invaders 21 troopers, 5 mobile units, 10 tanks(one an old style treaded tank), 8 copters(two are old style copters), 4 bombers(one a old style medium bomber), and, old style mobile missile unit & 4 old style fighter-bombers. U.S.A. losses of 13 troopers and 15 partisans, 1 mobile unit, 6 tanks, 2 copters(one a partisan copter), and, 1 bomber(also a partisan mobile gun, partisan car, and, old style fighter-bomber). More luck of the dice, has allowed U.S.A. forces to cause massive invader losses(nearly wipe the Southern Invader off the board).

Cities taken Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, San Diego, &, Miami. Retaken cities San Francisco, &, San Diego. Total lost cites 03.

Round Two: Losses Invaders 17 troopers, 8 mobile unit, 7 tanks, 4 copters(one a old style copter), 5 bombers, one old style fighter bomber. U.S.A. losses 11 partisans & 7 troopers, 5 mobile units(one a old style APC), 3 tanks, 6 copters(two are old style copters), 3 bombers, &, partisan car and mobile missile unit & old style fighter bomber. Again the Southern Invader nearly wiped out.

Cities taken L.A., San Fransico(again), San Diego, Phoenix, Tampa, &, Wash. D.C. Retaken by U.S. is Phoenix. Total lost cites to Invaders are 08(from a high of 9).

Round Three: Losses Invaders 9 troopers, 5 mobile units, 11 tanks, 4 copters, 5 bombers, &, old style fighter bomber. U.S.A. losses 6 troopers and 13 partisans, 5 mobile units, 2 tanks, 4 copters, 3 bombers(one an old style medium bomber & fighter bomber), &, a laser(due to card action).

Cites taken Las Vegas, Phoenix(again), San Antonio, Philly. Retaken cites by U.S. forces Washington D.C., &, Philly. Total lost cites to Invaders 10(from a high of 12).

Round Four: Losses Invaders 4 troopers, 4 mobile units, 5 tanks, 10 copters, 0 bomber. U.S.A. losses 7 partisans and 7 troopers, 4 mobile units, 3 tanks, 5 copters, 2 bombers, laser(from Colorado Springs).

Cites taken Salt Lake City, Colorado Springs, Houston(it was undefended), Dallas, New Orleans, Washington(again), and Philly(again, it was undefended). Retaken cites by U.S. forces Salt Lake City, San Antonio, Dallas, &, New Orleans. Total lost cites to Invaders 13(from a high of 17).

Round Five:Losses Invaders 2 troopers, mobile unit, 7 tanks, copter, &, 2 bombers. U.S.A.losses 4 partisans and trooper, mobile unit, 3 tanks. This round was hard for the U.S.A. as a Eastern Forces card did not let allolw the use of reinforcement cards for the U.S.(last rounds cards that degraded laser firings & lost of a laser hurt also).

Cities taken Salt Lake City(again), San Antonio(again), New Orleans(again), Atlanta, &, The Bg Apple. Retaken city by U.S.A. Colorado Springs. Total lost to Invaders 17(from a high of 18).

Round Six: Losses Invaders 5 troopers, 2 mobile, 3 tanks, copter, 2 bomber. U.S.A. losses 4 partisans and 2 troopers, 0 mobile, tank, no air.

Cites taken Denver, Dallas(again), Memphis, and, Boston(a high total of 21 cites). Retaken Cites by U.S.A. L.A., San Francisco, Los Angeles, Denver, Dallas, Miami, Atlanta, D.C., &, Boston. The use of reinforcement cards saved the U.S.A.

Total Lost to Invaders 12(from a high of 21 cities).

Western Invader controls the west(sans 3 cities & a territory) & 5 territories in the Rockies, has 10 troopers left. The Southern control 5 cities & 5 territories in the south, has 2 troopers left, &, Eastern controls 3 cities & 3 territories. Has 4 troopers & a copter cut off from supply lines & copter in Philly.

U.S.A. has 17 partisans, 3 tanks, &, 2 copters(8 lasers), the bulk of these new forces have never been in combat.

U.S.A. wins but at great cost, same political agreement as the last game, but, a greater lost of damage to the country as compared to the last game(oh well those lasers could burn up the garbage left over from the war).

Well the plan for a massive armor push, from the south nearly worked(if there was no reinforcement cards for the last round, the U.S. would have fallen). Even with the catastrophic losses in the first two rounds, the Southern Invader bounce back and made headway in the final round. The price was heavy, the game ended with the near extinction of all Southern forces. After all the cites high point for the game was 21(with the U.S. taking back nine cities in the same round).

Now if the Eastern Invader would have had the forces for a massive armor push & the same house rules:

Set up for the Eastern Invader is changed to this:
32 Armor(increased by 20, ten from each of the other invaders)
12 Infantry(decrease by 12, six going to each of the other invaders)
03 Mobil Units(decrease by 6, three going to each of the other invaders)
05 Bombers(decrease by 1, going to the Western Invader)
08 Copters(decrease by one, going to the Southern Invader), -along with the use of four irregular units-,
for a total of 60 regular units.
Could a massive armor push, starting in the East, knock out America faster than normal?*
