2nd edition set up

Post by marten » Sun Oct 28, 2012 11:58 am

I received my 2nd edition of A&A Europe a couple of weeks ago. I've never owned the 1st edition so do not know how it compares. All in all, I am very pleased with the game. However, a couple of things struck my as odd:

1. French units in the UK: I know the French infantry are just evacuated from Dunkirk, but these left behind all their equipment. Besides, a french fighter in the UK??? Very odd to me.

2. The high number of German submarines: there were not that many submarines yet in 1940. Now, it seems they are capable of wiping the British Home Fleet out.

3. German tanks already in the east: France is not defeated yet. However, half of the German panzers are alreacy deployed against the Balkan.

4. Hungary and Romania are already German.

But what struck me most of all is the starting point of the game: after Dunkirk. Why was this moment chosen? Why not start before the German attack in the West? It seems the Germans do not have a real option in the 1st turn: they have to defeat France.
