1) Axis must win by turn 5. After that the Allies become too strong.
2) The German bomber needs to stay in Germany. In Ukraine it is only bait for the Russians.
3) The game is very even. Very little should be given to either side for a bid.
We won the first game as the Axis (barely).
We played the Allies the following 3 rounds with bids of 7, 6, and 3. All units going into the Caucasus.
In the final game the British attack on the East Indies SZ failed miserably (losing 2 ftrs, ss, 2 CA, AC including 2 fully loaded transports) but we overcame that by the end of the game with the Allies gaining ground against Germany and Japan.
Overall the game is fairly even with the new setup and all of the games were very enjoyable. The opponents we played against were fun to play with and I look forward to playing against them again in the future.
