In the last scenario two of the weakest empires got savaged in land combat, but, this time there will be no Italy to suffer this fate. Allies British & French Empires & U.S.A., versus, Axis Germany & Ottoman Empires.

Round One: Germany builds fighter, 2 transports, sub., & , Cruiser. As usual forces from Togoland & Kameron take over undefended British Gold Coast & Nigeria. Moves forces to southern Germany for invasion of Northern France, plans are a massive invasion into Lorraine.

Flies fighter from capital to Lorraine, with sending transport from Brest to off Canada, and, BB to off London(does not seek battle).

Ottoman Empire builds fighter & sub. & gun, moves land forces to reinforce western & southern parts of the empire. There is a tipping point where the Ottomans have to decide if they will invade Egypt, or, just stay on the defensive.

Peace breaks out, GE. cannot keep up with the naval war anymore, now especially when the Allies outnumber them on the Western Front. Even Southern GE. will be hard to protect, much less hold, until new land & air units are fed into the pipeline. Gets back a colony for pulling out its lone trooper in Burgundy, free passage for Allied navies through its Home Waters. Of course the Allies can refuse, but, knows it would be a long march to ever get to Berlin.

The Ottoman Empire can go onto probable take out Sudan if it went to Round Seven, but, with additional French & more U.S. & British reinforcements, landings can be made soon into the empire. For a fair swap, they leave Egypt, &, British leave Mesopotamia. Oil leases for everybody, but, a good chunk for Germany. As for the Allies British keep an colony for themselves, give one to France & one to U.S.(who plan to turn it into a new nation).

Losses in IPCs: Troopers Axis 72 & Allies 69, gun/artillery 20 & 17, fighter 7 & 10, transports 3 & 4, subs. 10 & 2, Cruisers 7 & 5, and, BB 5 & 6.

Lost all Allies & Axis AHE transport, and, Ottoman sub. & fighter.

British Empire builds fighter for India, and, C & BB. Transport arrives off S. Africa with trooper & gun board, &, transport leaves Red Sea for India. BB & sub, leaves Wales for Egypt. Fighter flies from London to Paris(while another flies from India to Egypt), while BB from Red Sea enters Ottoman Home Waters. Brits. BB versus damaged AHE BB, losses mine damaged, &, both BBs sunk. Meanwhile 2 C, arrive in Central Med., while BB arrives off Morocco.

Ottoman Empire builds fighter, trooper, &, gun. More land units enter into Jordan.

U.S.A. builds BB & C, moves transport(2 troopers) & sub., to entrance of Med. Sea. BB & C joins Allied Fleet in Central Med. Sea.

Round Three: AHE builds sub., transport, BB, &, fighter. Home Feet stays at anchorage, next round will attempt a breakout to link up with Ottoman Empire, who will be invading Egypt.

France builds C, submarine, &, fighter. Transport leaves Egypt, goes to S. France & returns with trooper & gun(while a transport already at Marseilles does the same). BB escorts both transports to Egypt.

U.S.A. builds transport, sub., &, fighter. Moves sub. & transport off Egypt(2 troopers debark), while fighter flies to Morocco.

Round Four: AHE builds fighter, C, &, BB. The navy knows it is outnumber by no less than 50% off Italy, if the Allies want to prevent a breakout, let them come and get them in their Home Waters(one fleet at a time).

France builds 2 BBs. Fighters fly from capital to Marseilles, two transports go from Egypt to Marseilles, and, back(debark 4 troopers). Fleets from W. & Mid. Med.

Peace breaks out! AHE knows where this is going, their fleet will never get big enough to take on the Allies. If by chance they get naval superiority for one turn, probably Ottoman Empire will be overrun.

The Turks actually have some forces in Egypt, they agree to pull out, and, hand out economic "candy" to the Allies, oil leases(they make sure AHE helps finance their share of the Ottoman leases).

IPCs lost Axis troopers 11, &, Allies trooper 13, fighters 7, &, 3, transport 2, &, 1, subs. 3, &, 4, C 4, &, 5, and, BB five each side.

The Axis needs to keep their land & air forces rolling onto Russia, least amount of spending on naval forces, but, keep their coastal areas well defended.

Round One: AHE builds 2 fighters, submarine, &, 2 troopers. Moves land forces into S. Russia(Trieste garrison is left to guard coastline). Galicia garrison goes into Ukraine, even if contested, &, destroyed on Russia's turn.

Transport lands 2 troopers & retake undefended S. Africa colony, while trooper from Brit. East Africa goes into undefended GE. East Africa & takes colony. While a trooper enter Fr. Eq. Africa & Brit. East Africa from Sudan.

Another transport leaves Marseilles for Canada, while fighter lands in Lorraine, from London. From Marseilles to Burgundy, 4 troopers & 2 guns move there on the way to Lorraine. Sub. joins Fr. transport on Russian run, survives both minefields, sinks GE. transport off Berlin, but, sunk by fighter from Berlin.

Off Canada 2 troopers board a Fr. transport, &, 2 more troopers board a transport, &, debark at Picardy.

U.S.A. builds 3 transports, &, gun. Moves BB to off Scotland, &, from East Coast to off Ireland, 2 transports with 2 troopers & 2 guns. Also flies to Ireland, fighter from East Coast.

C off S. France, enter AHE Home Waters(no mine lost), &, battles BB(both lost). Axis has no naval power left!

Round Three: AHE needs to put some $ into naval purchases, but, at the same time pour as much material towards Moscow. Their Ally German is having trouble on the Western Front, &, will probably add little reinforcements for their Moscow push. It comes to the AHE to get there first, this round will pave the way for the next, either getting into Moscow(taking it or contesting it), or, make peace feelers to the Allies.

AHE builds sub., fighter, 3 troopers, &, gun. Moves a trooper to Trieste, &, trooper & gun to Galicia. Meanwhile Galicia garrison enters Uk., 25 troopers, 6 guns, fighter, versus, Russian trooper, 4 guns, &, fighter. Losses both fighters lost in air duel, Axis losses 3 troopers, &, Allies all, Uk. has fallen!

Russia builds 7 troopers, &, plans to hunker down in Moscow. Sends 2 troopers from Livonia into Moscow. All forces are concentrated in capital, Russians know the Axis will take the shortest way to their capital. The Axis cannot afford to take undefended provinces, that will give time for Russia to build more forces.

GE. has the most IPCs to build for this turn, but, has no navy(needing to build one, so the Allies do not make any landings), and, needs plenty of land units, to stop the Allies from getting into S. Germany. GE. builds 2 troopers, fighter, &, off Kiel a BB, C, &, submarine. Next turn more land forces, less naval units.

Moves forces back into Alsace, in order to save those precious guns. Still 6 guns & a trooper will not stop the Western Allies. Lorraine is abandon!, fighter flies from capital to Kiel(fails to sink Fr. transport off Berlin). Berlin garrison heads for Alsace.

Garrison in Poland(sans trooper & gun to protect coastline), enter & take undefended Belarus. Moscow is caught in the pincer of the Axis Powers!

France builds sub. off Marseilles, fighter, 2 troopers, &, gun. Moves reinforcements from Burgundy & Picardy into Lorraine. Along with 2 troopers into Burgundy from Marseilles. Also Lorraine garrison into Alsace, fighter, 4 guns, &, 2 troopers, versus, GE. trooper & 6 guns. Losses Allies all but trooper, &, Axis 4 guns, Alsace is contested!

Trooper from Togoland enters undefended British Nigeria, and, frees it from Axis. Transport from Marseilles arrives off Egypt, while BB enter AHE Home Waters(damaged by mines), versus, submarine. Losses both sank.

Transport leaves Canada with 2 Canadian troopers, &, arrives off Picardy. Also another transport arrives off Livonia & debarks 2 troopers.

British Empire builds fighter, BB, transport, &, gun. Transport off S. Africa goes to off Kamerun, while in Egypt trooper & gun board Fr. transport. Also trooper from Fr. Eq. Africa, takes over GE. undefended Kamerun. Trooper from S. Africa & GE. East Africa, enter Rhodesia defended by GE. trooper. Losses none, colony is contested.

From Picardy to Lorraine, 5 troopers & gun enter. From Home Waters, fighter, BB, C, &, two transports(from Wales with 2 guns & 2 troopers), enter GE. Home waters off Kiel(no mine losses), versus, GE. fighter(lost in air duel), BB, C, &, submarine. Losses Allies BB damaged, C, &, fighter, &, Axis all.

Finally a landing in Kiel, BB shells & defending gun replies. Both score a hit, Brit. trooper lost & GE. gun lost. In Kiel British trooper & 2 guns, versus, defending GE. trooper. Losses Allies gun & Axis trooper, Kiel falls! Axis fleet destroyed & home port captured!

From Lorraine into GE. Alsace, 4 troopers, 2 guns, &, 2 fighter, versus, GE. trooper & 2 guns. Losses Allies trooper, &, GE. all, Alsace has fallen!

U.S.A. builds C, transport, &, trooper. Two transports(2 troopers & 2 guns), with escort BB arrive off London. Also 3 transports(4 troopers & gun) leave East coast for France. Along with fighter leaves Ireland for Scotland.

Round Four: AHE will probably take or contest Moscow, or, GE. will finish it. Builds mostly naval & air units, her coastline is well defended, as for land forces any new units would take three turns to reach Moscow(by then the war could tilt into the Allies favor).

Builds BB, C, sub., &, trooper. Moves from capital to Galicia 2 troopers & gun and fighter flies to Uk., from Galicia to Uk. a trooper & gun. Finally from Uk. to Moscow, 23 troopers & 6 guns, versus, Russian 16 troopers & gun. Losses Axis 9 troopers, &, Allies 5 troopers, Moscow is contested.

Russia builds 7 troopers(yes I know Moscow is contested, house rule for capitals, forces are still arriving to defend it). Will not attack AHE forces, not enough wins can be gotten to eliminate them, much less oncoming Germans.

Germany build BB, sub., tank, gun, &, 4 troopers. Moves Berlin garrison to retake Kiel, 3 troopers, gun, &, fighter, versus, Brits. trooper & gun. Losses Axis trooper & Allies all, Kiel retaken. Splits Hanover forces(6 troopers & gun) to cover Ruhr & Munich areas. Forces in Belarus enter Moscow, 12 troopers & 2 guns & fighter, versus, Russian 18 troopers & gun. Losses GE. 11 troopers & gun, &, Russian 6 troopers.

Of course if Russia was not allowed to builds reinforcements, the game would be practically over by now.

France builds off Marseilles BB, tank & 3 troopers. Moves trooper in Nigeria to board Brit. transport, while trooper from Alsace enter Munich, versus, GE. 3 troopers(lost Allies none & Axis a trooper, Munich is contested). Also 5 troopers from Lorraine enter Alsace, while 2 troopers from Burgundy enter Lorraine(with a fighter from the capital). Finally the Paris garrison enters Burgundy of 3 troopers & gun. A trooper from Livonia enter Moscow, leaving a trooper to guard the coast.

Transport leaves Egypt with Brit. trooper & gun, &, arrives off Marseilles. While a transport leaves Livonia & arrives(no mine lost) off Kiel. Unfortunately the damaged Allied BB & 2 transports already there are British, so the GE. fleet of a BB & sub. go to the attack. Losses Allies 2 Brits. & 1 Fr. transports, Axis all.

British Empire builds C(one off Wales), 2 transports, 2 guns, &, 2 troopers. Moves trooper in Brits. E. Africa towards Egypt. Two troopers versus GE. trooper in Rhodesia, colony retaken for no lost. While trooper in S. Africa takes over undefended GE. S.W. Africa, another trooper boards a transport off Kameron(heading for France). Off Marseilles trooper & gun debark Fr. transport. Meanwhile a trooper & gun debark off another Fr. transport onto Picardy.

Transport from Wales picks up trooper & gun from London, along with another transport off London picks up same, with a BB & a fighter from London. They join damaged BB off Kiel(no mine lost). Both BB shell & defending gun fire(British BBs destroy trooper & gun, &, GE. gun take out a trooper), in air duel GE. fighter lost. Landed trooper & 2 guns & fighter, face one GE. defending trooper. Kiel falls for such heavy a lost!(GE. has lost 2 troopers, gun, &, fighter for Kiel, better the forces were not defending Kiel).

On Western Front from Alsace forces enter Ruhr with 4 troopers, 2 guns, &, 2 fighters, versus, defending GE. 3 troopers & gun. Losses Allies 3 troopers & Axis all. Ruhr has fallen! Also from Lorraine to Alsace 5 troopers & gun enter.

U.S.A. builds transport, trooper, &, tank. Moves C from East coast to join Fr. fleet off Marseilles. Three transports arrive off London(4 troopers & guns), debark for now.

Fighter flies from Scotland to Prussia. BB(damaged by mines) & 2 transports arrive off Prussia with 2 trooper & 2 guns debark, &, in Prussia are defending GE. trooper & gun. BB shells & defending gun relies(Allies lose a trooper & Axis a gun).

Landed trooper & 2 guns & fighter, versus, GE. trooper. Prussia falls for no Allied lost, first major land action for U.S.A.! While another transport(trooper & gun) leaves East Coast for Picardy.

Round Five: Austro-Hungarian Empire is going to play this round two ways, in regards to Russia. The first if Russia was not allowed to collect 7 troopers as reinforcements for Moscow, due to the fact, the capital is contested. The second is if Russia was allowed to collect those troopers.

AHE builds BB, gun, &, 4 troopers. Moves from Uk. a trooper, gun, &, fighter, into Moscow. Now 14 troopers, 7 guns, &, fighter, versus, defending Russian forces of 5 troopers, gun, &, one Fr. trooper(NOTE: this version is where the Russians due to the capital being contested since last turn, could not purchase seven troopers). Losses Axis 4 troopers & Allies all, Moscow falls!

The Axis win!, in the worst possible way, a true Pyrrhic victory that leaves them in utter defeat! Look at the Allies, Russia has four provinces taken over by the Axis powers, France had Lorraine for a short while taken over by GE., Great Britain had for a while 3 African colonies taken over by GE., while the U.S.A. has had no losses in territory. As for the Axis AHE has never lost any provinces, but, its partner GE. has lost four of its eight home provinces, including the principal naval base Kiel. Along with all of its four African colonies, also the French are contesting & will take over a province that borders AHE.

With more Allied sea landings in Russia, &, the threat of the GE. fading away, can AHE last much longer(the Allies can land & reinforce their holdings in Russia, while AHE needs to pull forces out of Russia to try to help GE., Berlin already has Allies on its border, much less defend itself from a Western Allies invasion).

Already forces have been pulled from coastal province to buff up the western empire. The Allies transport express can make a visit there quite soon.

AHE & GE. can crow about taking over Moscow, but, generous peace overtures will prevent the lost of Berlin(maybe Vienna). Pull out of Russia by the Axis, while the Allies pull out of Germany. Moscow alone is worth a GE. colony returning to Berlin, as for the other three are "sold" to the Allies(everybody saves face).


Ok we will start the round again, as AHE faces a Russia, that even though was contested Moscow last round, still built 7 troopers to protect her capital.

Moves to Bohemia from Galicia 3 troopers & gun, along with a trooper from the capital, with 5 troopers & gun from Trieste to Tyrolia. The Western Allies are on the borders of the empire!

Also from Uk. into Moscow trooper & gun & fighter, for a total of 14 troopers, 7 guns, &, fighter, versus, Fr. trooper and Russian 12 troopers, &, gun. Losses Axis 7 troopers & Allies Fr. trooper & Russians 11 troopers, Moscow still contested!

In an attempt to help GE., the AHE fleet leaves port, &, attacks the Ally fleet off S. France. BB, C, &, submarine, versus, same as Allies(with a transport, all Fr. but C is U.S.A.). Losses only damaged Fr. BB left.

Russia builds 5 troopers & hunkers down in Moscow.

GE. builds fighter, gun, &, 6 troopers. Pulls forces from Moscow(they will never take it, leave that to AHE), &, invades & takes Livonia(fighter, trooper & gun, versus, Fr. trooper, losses Axis gun & Fr. trooper). Pulls garrison from Belarus of 2 troopers into Poland, then garrison from Poland of trooper & gun into American occupied Prussia(along with 4 troopers & gun, &, tank from Berlin). Battle 5 troopers, 2 guns, &, tank, versus, U.S. trooper, 2 guns, &, fighter. Losses Axis 3 troopers reduced to two due to tank, &, Allies of 2 guns, Prussia contested.

In Munich defending garrison of 2 troopers attack Fr. 2 troopers, losses trooper each side. The extra Russian province will come in handy for peace talks.

Fr. builds off Marseilles transport, fighter, 4 troopers. Two troopers from Lorraine enter Alsace, 3 troopers & gun from Burgundy enter Lorraine, while from Paris 3 troopers & tank enter Burgundy. Four troopers from Alsace joins trooper in contested Munich(fighter flies in from Lorraine), now 5 troopers versus defending GE. trooper(losses all GE., Munich falls!).

Fr. transport with trooper from Brest arrives off Kiel(start to build up naval forces & transports, to land on Trieste). BB leaves Marseilles, with no mine losses, attacks AHE BB in waters off Trieste, losses Allies BB damaged & Axis all.

British Empire builds sub., 2 transports, fighter, tank, gun, 4 troopers. Colonial forces in Africa start to head towards Egypt. From off Wales C sails to Marseille.

Trooper & 2 guns from Ruhr enter undefended Handover(it falls!). Two BB(one already damaged) enters waters off Berlin, along with Kiel garrison of trooper & 2 guns on 2 transports. Along with 2 transports from Brits. Home Islands of 2 troopers & 2 guns(no mine losses). BBs shell & defending gun replies(each side losses a trooper). Dogfight of 2 fighters from Ruhr & one from Kiel battle defending GE. fighter, each side losses a fighter.

Battle 2 fighters, 2 troopers, &, 4 guns, versus, defending GE. 5 troopers & gun. Losses Allies trooper & gun, &, Axis 4 troopers & gun, Berlin is contested.

U.S.A. builds 2 transports, 3 guns, &, trooper. Transport arrives off London with trooper & gun. Also three transports(4 troopers & gun) arrive off Berlin & Prussia from London, no mine lost, lands trooper & gun onto Berlin. Trooper & gun versus defending GE. trooper. Losses U.S. gun, &, GE. trooper, Berlin has fallen!

Meanwhile 2 transports off Prussia leaves for East Coast, two other transports land three troopers as reinforcements. U.S.A. BB shells & defending GE. gun replies, each scores a hit on a trooper. Reinforcements hunker down.

Another transport leaves East Coast with trooper & tank for Marseilles.

Round Six: AHE plays this round, to get as much as possible at the conference table, after this turn, will sue for Peace(knows the Allies are tired of fighting). Builds fighter, BB, sub., &, 4 troopers.

Moves 4 troopers & gun into Silesia Germany, from Vienna(not defended by Allies or occupied by GE. troops, taken over by AHE). Four infantry & gun from Bohemia enter British held Hanover, versus, trooper & 2 guns. Losses only Allies all, Hanover falls! From Tryolia enter Fr. held Munich, 5 troopers, gun, & fighter, versus, Fr. fighter, &, five troopers. Fr. fighter losses air duel, losses Axis 2 troopers, & Allies 2 troopers, Munich contested!

Finally the Battle for Moscow, 8 troopers, 6 guns, fighter, versus, Russian 7 troopers & gun. Losses Allies 6 troopers & Axis 6 troopers & gun.

Peace breaks out!

Even thought AHE forces border Berlin, taking it is hard enough, but, to hold it would be next to impossible(so far for reinforcements to arrive, much less Allies with their transport arrive so easily). Still with a GE. province contested, &, two others taken over, holding them becomes a big problem, much less if you use those forces to try to take Berlin.

The attack on Moscow failed, with Russian reinforcements coming up, &, if it went to another turn, you would need all hits from all AHE forces to take Moscow(most unlikely). Maybe a sudden retreat, just to take a empty Russian province, would work out better for another turn.

AHE beef up their navy, in case of some future Allied landing coming from France, but, could only build 4 troopers(inadequate for a Western, Eastern, &, Coastal front, to the peace table!).

The Axis powers pull completely out of Russia, while the Allies pull out of Germany completely. Alsace is demilitarized & Prussia becomes a country again. GE. losses all its colonies(to be split tween the Allies, Russia takes money for their share), makes it hard for GE. to go onto a offensive. The Allies help Russia rebuilt, while AHE helps Germany. Russia & GE. got ravage, minor physical damage for Fr. & B.E., while A.H.E. & U.S.A. were never invaded.

Finally Allies free passage in Axis Home waters, moderate Allied victory.

IPCs of Units Lost: Troopers Axis 114 and Allies 110, Guns 26 & 28, Fighters six each side, Subs. 9 & 3, Transports 3 & 6, BB 8 & 5, and, C five each side.

Post by pellulo » Mon Jan 25, 2016 12:27 am

Next British & French & Russian & Italian Empires versus AH & German Empires. If you thought U.S.A. was a weak sister, Italy has smaller IPC value, but, much larger unit setup.

The Axis Powers victim is Russia, it can be attacked by both empires at the same time. While doing so holding the line defensively at the Italian & French borders, while juggling enough land forces to be feed for offensive purposes in the Northern Front(& defensively on the Southern Front). Also keep the air & naval arms up to strength.

Finally keep secondary small armies, up north, to google up all those empty Russian provinces for the taking.

The Allied Powers need to get naval superiority to get those transports to Russia(or attack the Axis homelands), and/or, keep the Med. Sea a Allied lake. Also pound away via N. France & Italy to force the Axis Powers to divert resources from the Eastern Front(taking out GE. colonies in Africa will help also).

The danger of transport landings in Axis territories already forces them to try to keep large navies, &, keep their coastlines garrisoned.


Round One: Austro-Hungarian Empire builds, gun, 3 troopers, fighter, &, submarine. Moves Bohemia & Budapest & half of Vienna garrison to Galicia. From Vienna to Trieste & Tyrolia are sent 3 troopers each, while a gun is left in capital(to form a gun park).

Russia builds fighter, sub., &, 4 troopers. Poland is too open for a combined Axis attacks, moves garrison sans a trooper to Livonia, Moscow garrison to Belarus, &, Far East forces to Ukraine.

Germany builds sub. & transport off Kiel, fighter, &, 5 troopers. GE. moves up forces in Prussia & Silesia for next turn invasion of Poland, with Berlin(plus fighter), &, Hanover, &, Kiel garrisons going east(leaving forces to protect the coastlines). Forces from Ruhr & Munich reinforce garrison at Alsace.

In Africa British undefended Gold Coast & Nigeria taken over by troopers from Togoland & Kamerun. SW Africa invades Brits. S. Africa, trooper & gun versus the same. Losses both sides a gun, S. Africa is contested.

At Sea 2 subs. from Sea Zone #7 attack & sink Canadian C & transport off Canada, for no lost. Two subs. from SZ#5 joins fleet off Kiel.

France builds fighter, sub. off Brest, &, 4 troopers. In Africa trooper in Morocco reinforces trooper in Fr. W. Africa, while troopers from North Africa pick up by transport & land in Marseilles. BB & C leave Marseilles & joins Italian fleet off Rome, while a transport arrives off Egypt.

Africa, battle 2 troopers versus, invading GE. trooper, losses all Axis! The colony is uncontested. Trooper from E. Africa, &, Indian transport of trooper & gun land in GE. East Africa. Battle 2 troopers & gun versus defending GE. trooper, colony falls! Losses a trooper each side. Also trooper from Sudan enters Fr. Eq. Africa, heading for GE. Kamerun.

Russia builds 8 troopers. Moves from capital, one trooper into Uk., &, moves trooper & gun from Uk., back into Sevastopol. From capital moves 3 troopers & gun, into Belarus. Troopers from Finland & Karelia move into Livonia, while fleet stays in home waters. With capital, Livonia, &, Belarus garrison, it will allow a major counterattack, into Poland or only Uk. when the time comes.

GE. builds BB(off Berlin), fighter, &, 7 troopers. In Africa trooper in Nigeria goes to Kamerun. Forces from Prussia & Silesia invade Poland. Trooper & gun left to guard coastline of Prussia, &, same to follow up as a backup army to take out undefended Russian provinces, while fighter flies from Berlin to Munich. Trooper & 3 guns go from Hanover to Munich, also 5 troopers from Berlin go to Hanover.

Battle 29 troopers, 7 guns, &, fighter, versus, defending Russian trooper. The losses trooper each side, Poland has fallen!

Home Waters(no mine lost), versus, GE. BB, 2 C, 3 subs., &, transport. Losses Allies all & Axis transport(Axis fleets are only defending so transports chosen as lost).

Fr. naval losses are high, but, weaken Axis fleets, for more naval Allied raids. Finally land forces enter Alsace from Lorraine. Seventeen troopers, 6 guns, &, fighter, versus, GE. 26 troopers, & 9 guns. Losses Allies all but a trooper, &, Axis 12 troopers. Alsace is contested.

Two transports go from Marseilles to off Egypt, while a transport arrives off S. France from Egypt(with 2 Brits. troopers).

From Marseilles 2 troopers, and, trooper & gun from Picardy enters Lorraine. Off London trooper & gun debark Fr. transport onto Picardy, two more troopers debark Fr. transport onto Marseilles.

Finally from Egypt, to AHE Home Waters, 2 C, and, BB(damaged by mines), versus, AHE damaged BB, C, &, 2 submarines. Losses Allies all, &, Axis C & 2 subs.

From off London, British fleet enter GE. Home Waters off Kiel, BB, 2C, transport(no mine lost), &, 2 fighters. Losses only damaged British BB left(a fighter flew back to London).

Italy builds gun & 4 troopers. Trooper arrives in Egypt from East Africa. Fleet enters AHE Home Waters of BB, C, &, transport(BB damaged by mine), versus, damaged AHE BB. Losses Allies C, &, Axis BB. From Tuscany 6 troopers & 2 guns, and, from Piedmont a trooper & gun, enter Venice. Also from Rome a trooper moves to Tuscany.

Forces in Venice enter Trieste with fighter from Rome. Battle fighter by air, by land 13 troopers & 4 guns, by sea BB shells & two defending guns fire(each side destroys an infantry), transport lands a trooper(from Rome), versus, AHE 8 troopers & 2 guns. Losses Allies 6 troopers, &, Axis all, Trieste falls!

Round Three: Italy is the brightest highlights for the Allies, but, it could be too little, too late!

AHE builds no naval units, it has lost its port, needs lots of land units to take it back. Land/air forces build gun, 5 troopers, fighter. Also forces in Russia will have to try to reach the capital, with little or no reinforcements for now.

Tries to retake Trieste, from capital 2 fighters, 3 troopers, &, gun, &, from Tyrolia 8 troopers, &, 2 guns, versus, Italian fighter, 4 guns, &, 7 infantry. In air duel, each side losses a fighter, losses Axis 5 troopers, &, Allies 3 troopers. Losses are heavy, but, the capital & Hungary are right next door, Trieste is contested.

In Uk. 19 troopers, 4 guns, &, fighter, take out defending trooper(for no lost), Uk. has fallen!

Russia should they attack, or, trade more space for time, builds 6 troopers, &, fighter. Fighter from Belarus dogfights AHE fighter over Uk., Axis fighter downed, Allied fighter returns to Moscow. Belarus garrison, sans a trooper, retreats to Moscow(4 guns, &, 14 troopers). Also sans a trooper, Livonia garrison retreats to Moscow(3 guns, &, 4 troopers).

At sea BB leaves Home Port, attacks GE. BB off Berlin(no mine lost), both BBs are lost. Sub. remains behind to guard coastal waters. At this time, the Allies rule the waves, there is no Axis naval forces on the board.

GE. builds BB off Berlin, and, BB & sub. & transport, off Kiel. Moves into Livonia 26 troopers, 6 guns, &, a fighter(leaving in Poland 2 troopers & gun, to guard the coastline), versus, defending trooper. Losses Axis none, &, Allies all, Livonia has fallen!

Moves Munich garrison to Tyrolia, of trooper, 3 guns, &, fighter to cover undefended AHE state(as the original AHE forces were used to try to take back Trieste).

Also 5 trooper move from Hanover to Munich, from capital 4 troopers move into Hanover, while 3 troopers head east, by going into Silesia. Forces in Alsace, 14 troopers & seven guns, versus, Fr. trooper. Losses a trooper each side, Alsace is uncontested!

Fr. builds 2 guns & 5 troopers. Moves trooper into undefended Togoland, from Gold Coast, GE. colony falls! Submarine off London, enters GE. Home Waters(no mine lost), arrives off Berlin submerged. BB leaves Marseilles & heads for London.

One transport from Egypt arrive off Trieste with British trooper & gun, while another transport goes to Egypt(from Marseilles). Also transport leaves Brest & London heading for Canada.

Trooper from Picardy and 6 troopers from Burgundy move to Lorraine, while 2 troopers go from Paris to Burgundy(build up for another invasion of S. GE.).

British Empire builds BB, fighter, 2 guns, & 2 troopers. Transport from Egypt goes to Trieste drops off 2 troopers, &, from Fr. transport trooper & gun debark, along with fighter flying in from Egypt. This will allow the Italians to attack on their turn, while the Brits. build up their forces.

From Brits. E. Africa, trooper & gun, move into Sudan. Troopers from Nigeria & Kamerun board transport, &, one trooper debarks & takes over undefended GE. S. Africa!

In Canada trooper & gun board Fr. transport. Also from Picardy to Lorraine trooper & gun enter, and, from Marseilles to Burgundy 2 troopers move there.

Trooper from Wales goes on transport, ship moves off London, another trooper boards, &, both debark onto Picardy. Another 2 troopers from Yorkshire board transport, it goes to off London, both debark onto Picardy. While a third transport, leaves Wales, does the same with a trooper & gun from London.

From Rome 2 troopers & gun move to Tuscany, while trooper from Tuscany moves to Venice. Also from Venice 7 troopers & 3 guns enter Trieste as reinforcements. Now 14 troopers, &, 7 guns, versus, AHE 7 troopers, 3 guns, &, fighter. Losses Allies 6 troopers & all Axis, Trieste is held again by Italy(while leaving Venice held by only a trooper).

Pressure is on the Axis, thy must take out Russia next turn, &, hold their southern fronts.

Round Four: AHE builds 2 guns, &, 6 troopers. Moves a secondary army, that has yet to enter Russia, to Budapest from Galicia. Also 2 troopers from capital are moved to Budapest.

Leaving behind 2 troopers in Uk., forces enter Moscow, do or die, these troops can never make it back to help in the southern front. Twenty-one troopers & 7 guns, versus, Russian 2 fighters, 7 guns, &, 39 troopers. Losses Axis all but for one trooper, &, Allies 11 troopers.

AHE has its foot in the door, it is up to GE. to finish kicking it in.

Russia builds 6 troopers. Submarine joins Fr. submarine off Berlin(no mine lost), stays submerged, does not engage GE. BB. Trooper from Tatarstan , &, trooper & gun from Sevastopol, enter Uk. defended by 2 AHE troopers. Battle Allies lose one trooper, &, Axis all, Uk. is freed. In Moscow the garrison, versus, lone invading AHE trooper, no Allied lost, trooper destroyed, capital is Axis freed!

So far AHE Grand Army has done what France did a century earlier, left its army bones rotting in Moscow, will GE. do the same.

GE. builds C off Berlin, fighter, tank, &, 6 troopers. Moves Tyrolia garrison of fighter, trooper, &, 3 guns into Venice, defended by one Italian trooper. Losses Axis a gun & Allies a trooper, Venice has fallen, hopefully takes pressure off AHE. Fighter flies back to Tyrolia, &, 5 troopers from Munich enters Tyrolia. Also another fighter from Kiel flies to Alsace(while another fighter flies from Berlin to Kiel). Along with 4 troopers from Hanover enters Munich.

From Silesia 3 troopers enter Poland, &, 2 troopers & gun from Poland enter Belarus. Battle 2 troopers & gun, versus, defending Russian trooper, losses a trooper each side, Belarus has fallen.

Forces in Livonia, except for 2 troopers, enter Moscow. Battle fighter, 6 guns, &, 25 troopers, versus, Russian 2 fighters, 7 guns, &, 34 troopers. In air duel Axis fighter lost. Losses Axis 24 troopers & a gun, &, Allies 13 troopers. Moscow is contested again, even if allowed no builds for Russia because the capital was contested earlier by a lone AHE trooper, Axis losses would have been 23 troopers.

The Axis do not have in the near future, any forces in the pipeline, to try to take Moscow(even thought GE. is worth 38 IPCs).

France builds fighter, tank, 4 troopers. In Africa trooper leaves Togoland and heads for N. Africa, while transport off Egypt heads for Red Sea. Another transport arrives off Canada, and, one leaves Canada with Brit. trooper & gun, for Picardy. Finally another transport leaves Trieste for Egypt, &, BB arrives off London.

Five troopers & gun from capital enters Burgundy, &, enters Lorraine from Burgundy two troopers. Forces leave Lorraine & enter GE. Alsace, 15 troopers & 2 guns, versus, GE. fighter, 7 guns, &, 13 troopers. Losses Allies 10 troopers, &, Axis 7 troopers, Alsace is contested.

British Empire builds fighter, trooper, gun, BB, &, submarine. Canadian trooper & gun board Fr. transport. In Sudan trooper & gun, and, Egypt trooper board Fr. transports. Also off GE. S. Africa trooper boards transport, heading for Trieste.

Five troopers & gun in Picardy, &, 2 troopers in Marseilles, enter Lorraine. Along with off London, 4 troopers & 2 guns board & debark three transports, onto Picardy. Also trooper & gun, debark onto Picardy, from a Fr. transport.

Battle from Lorraine to contested Alsace, 2 fighters, 2 guns, and, 4 troopers, versus, GE. 9 guns, &, 6 troopers. Losses Allies all & Axis 5 troopers & gun. For the Allies it has become a war of attrition, GE. cannot sent to Alsace forces to equal the Allies, already the precious GE. guns outnumber the infantry. So the losses are just able to the British.

Transport leaves waters off Trieste and heads for India. Forces in Trieste enter Venice, fighter, gun, &, 3 troopers, versus, GE. trooper & 2 guns. Losses Allies a trooper, &, Axis 2 guns, still contested.

At sea the fleet off London, enter GE. Home Waters, 2 BBs(one suffered mine damage), C, &, 2 fighters, versus, GE. BB, sub., transport, &, fighter. GE. fighter wins air duel, losses all are lost, both sides. The threat of any naval landings on British Home Islands are eliminated(as London was the only sector, with forces in it).

Italy builds gun, &, 4 troopers. BB goes back to Trieste, from off Rome, to protect transport. From Tuscany to Venice, enter 2 troopers & gun, versus, defending GE. trooper. Losses trooper each side, Venice is freed!

From Rome 2 troopers move to Tuscany, &, 2 troopers are move by transport to Trieste. Finally from Trieste 7 guns, &, 7 troopers, enter Vienna, versus, AHE 9 troopers, 3 guns, &, a fighter. With a fighter from Rome, it was lost in air duel, losses Allies 5 troopers, &, Axis 8 troopers & a gun. The capital is contested!, the Italians could have taken Budapest, but, contesting the capital puts a lot pressure on the Axis.

Peace breaks out! For GE. Alsace is a bleeding ulcer, hard to get forces down there, also the need for a navy(to prevent Allied landings, sucks up allot of funds), plus in all of Russia there is only 6 troopers! The 5 guns & trooper, in Moscow will never take it(especially with Russian 26 troopers, 7 guns, &, 2 fighter defending it)! Along with a new front in Italy to help the AHE. Finally the only naval Axis units of a BB & C, are hard press to hold out against Allies 3 BBs, 3 sub., &, 10 transports.

AHE has no forces in Russia, needs its Budapest garrison to go to Vienna, to get Italy out of there, but, will not be able to prevent Russia from seizing Galicia. Both Axis powers face a resurgent Moscow that will go on the offensive, when their armies are already stretched to the limit in S. & W. Europe.

The Allies like the British have retaken back their lost colonies, Fr. is still contesting Alsace, Italy got back Venice, &, Russia took back Uk.

A moderate victory for the Allies(a full military one would take a few more turns), the Axis pull out of Moscow, the Allies out of Vienna. GE. pulls out of three Russian provinces, and, the Allies pull out of Alsace. In return the Allies keep two of the GE. colonies(as always Russia sells her share).

Finally the Axis navies are restricted to their Home Waters, free passage for the Allies, &, Prussia is made a independent nation again. The Allies help Russia rebuild, the Axis help each other.

Losses of units in IPCs: Axis troopers 105 & Allies troopers 91, guns 17 & 13, fighters 5 & 7, transports 3 each side, subs 9 only Axis, Cruisers 3 & 8, BBs 3 & 5,

Actual IPCs in cost: Land Axis 383 & Allies 325, Air 30 & 42, Sea 129 & 150.

Next Russian & French & Italian Empires and U.S., versus, AH & German Empire. Here the Americans are taking the place of the B.E., too far to help Russia, &, East Coast of Africa. Shuttling troops & ships to Brest & off Rome is the best for now(winning the Battle of Atlantic will allow transports to get there to Europe).

Post by pellulo » Sat Apr 09, 2016 1:53 am

Next British & Russian & Italian Empires & U.S.A., versus, AH & German Empires. Russia is the Axis goal, hold in the south and control the North Sea. It is hard for any direct U. S. aid, British Empire needs complete naval control of the North Sea, &, Italian forces even with Allied help, will find it hard to break into Southern AHE.

Round One: A.H.E. builds manpower, to protect its coast from landing, and, any push into the southern empire(naval takes a back seat). Finally fighters, guns, &, troopers for the big push into Moscow. Builds 4 troopers, fighter, &, submarine. Moves land forces to Galicia & reinforces Trieste & Tyrolia, the latter to protect from Allied southern incursions, into the empire.

Russia builds fighter, sub., 4 troopers. Keeping a trooper in Karelia, moves forces into Belarus & Uk.(leaving a trooper in Poland). Russian will trade territory, &, avoid combat, to build up her land forces.

Italy's fighter wins air duel with AHE fighter, 2 troopers, &, 6 guns, versus, defending AHE 4 troopers, tank, &, gun. Italy losses trooper & 3 guns, &, AHE all(tank also absorbed a hit). Vienna has fallen!

From Venice 4 troopers enter Tyrolia defended by GE. 5 troopers. This is too hopefully contest that AHE province, so GE. forces cannot go directly to Vienna, or, if the Italians are wiped out, cannot threaten Venice(protected by Brits. 2 troopers and so to arrive U.S. forces). Losses 2 troopers each side, Tyrolia is contested. Most of Italy's original land units have been destroyed, while a good bulk of GE. forces/Grand Army are still intact, &, a fair share of AHE/not so Grand Army in Moscow.

U.S.A. builds tank, gun, trooper, &, 2 transports. Fighter flies from Scotland to Kiel, while C & transport(trooper & gun) leaves East Coast for Kiel. Also 2 troopers board It. transport off East Coast.

Two transports leave Italy for East Coast, &, another transport arrives with sub., that debarks trooper & gun onto Piedmont. Also entering Venice from Piedmont are 3 troopers & gun.

I will end this game, as usual when a capital falls, it is barley making it to a moderate Allied win. AHE gets back Vienna, Russia gets two Axis armies out of Moscow, Allies leave contested Tryolia, Trieste, &, Kiel, and, Russia gets back Poland, Belarus, &, Ukraine. GE. keeps Togoland and the Allies get the other three colonies(Russia sells her part, &, U.S. makes a new country).

Afterwards I will play one more round to see if the Axis could have taken Moscow. The bulk of all land forces are on the Eastern Front, Russia has 13 guns, &, 28 troopers. The Axis attack separately, AHE has only 7 troopers & 7 guns with a fighter, not enough to take out Russia, but, maybe enough to weaken it for Germany's 2 fighters, 21 troopers, &, 15 guns. Also 7 troopers & five guns in Uk., Poland, &, Prussia.

The Southern Front the Axis have 3 troopers(with also 3 troopers & 2 guns in Hanover) & Allies have 2 fighter, 16 troopers, &, 13 guns(also 3 more troopers on transports, &, 11 troopers & 3 guns in Africa & Asia) .

The Western Front Axis have 4 guns, 6 troopers, fighter & tank, in Kiel and Berlin, and, the Allies in Kiel trooper, gun, &, fighter. With also the Brits. Home Islands & Canada & East Coast, 16 troopers and 4 guns and a tank.

The Axis still has a large presence in the East, less in the West, but, most of it is in mainland Europe, &, in the south practically no forces. As for the navy, the Axis have a C waiting to be destroyed, while the Allies have 4 BB, 2 C, 3 submarines, &, 13 mighty transports.

IPCs lost units, Air: Axis 4 & Allies 5 fighters, Navy: BB 6 and 5, C 5 and 6, Submarine 10 and 2, Transport 2 each side, Tanks one only Axis, Guns 6 and 4, Troopers 86 & 56( actual face value of purchase units: Air Axis 24 & Allies 30, Naval Axis 189 & Allies 138, &, Land Axis 288 & Allies 184).

The What IF Round #5, cause the Axis did not want to lose,

Round Five: AHE builds zero units, retreats trooper from Trieste to Budapest, a trooper goes from Uk. into Moscow and another goes back to Galicia, while a third trooper just stays in Uk. Finally battle for Moscow, AHE forces can only hope to weaken Russia, to let GE. finish the job. Eight troopers, 7 guns, &, 1 fighter, versus, Russian 28 troopers & 13 guns. Losses AHE all, &, Russians 9 troopers.

Russia builds 6 troopers, moves in trooper from Karelia & Livonia, has fleet of BB & sub. enter GE. Home Waters(BB suffers damage), versus, GE. Cruiser. Losses Russian sub. & GE. Cruiser.

GE. builds fighter, 3 troopers, gun, sub., &, BB. Hanover Garrison crosses over to Bohemia, while the 3 troopers in contested Tyrolia pass on attacking 2 invading Italian troopers(this will help prop up the AHE for a while). Polish Garrison enters Belarus, Prussian Garrison enters Poland, while garrison from capital splits up sending units to Prussia & Kiel.

In Kiel 2 troopers, 3 guns, tank, &, fighter, versus, U.S. fighter & Bits. trooper & gun. In dogfight Allies win, on land Axis lost absorbed by tank, &, all Allies wiped out. Kiel is freed! Meanwhile in Moscow, 2 fighters, 21 troopers, &, 15 guns, versus, Russian 27 troopers & 13 guns. Losses GE. 20 troopers & a gun, &, Russians 23 troopers.

British build fighter, tank, 2 guns, &, 2 transports. From Wales 2 troopers go to London. Moves trooper & gun from Togoland to Gold Coast, from Trieste into Budapest 2 troopers & 4 guns, versus, AHE trooper. Losses a trooper each side, Budapest falls! Three transports off Trieste go to Egypt & bring back 4 troopers & a gun, while another transport outside Med. Sea brings a trooper(also C leaves Trieste for Kiel).

BB off Kiel , &, sub. & C off London, go to off GE. Home Waters off Berlin(no mine lost), versus, GE. BB & sub. Losses British a sub, &, GE. all. Two transports off Kiel go back to British Home Islands & pick up 3 troopers & gun. BB that stayed, off Kiel shells & 3 guns defending fire back, each side losses a trooper. British 2 troopers & gun, versus, on land GE. trooper, tank, &, 3 guns. Land losses Allies trooper & gun, &, Axis 2 guns(tank took a hit), Kiel is contested. Also BB arrives off London.

Italy builds(with also IPCs that were in Vienna when it was captured)fighter, C, sub., gun, &, 7 troopers. Fighter flies from Rome to Vienna, also 3 troopers & gun go into Tuscany from Rome. From Venice garrison reinforces units in Tryolia, 6 troopers & gun, versus, GE. 3 troopers. Losses It. a trooper & GE. all, Tryolia falls! Transport leaves East Coast with U.S. 2 troopers for Kiel.

U.S.A. builds transport, &, 4 troopers. Two transports leave for Kiel with 2 troopers, tank, &, gun. Also 2 transports arrive East Coast, &, another transport(trooper & gun) & escorting C arrive off London. Along with sub. off Rome heading for London, &, transport off Rome heading for India. From Venice 3 troopers & gun enter Tyrolia.

Here I will leave this setup, could another round, GE. finally take Moscow, much less get Vienna back. To do the former is possible, 2 fighters, 17 guns, & 2 troopers, versus, Russian 13 guns, &, 10 troopers(six are new builds). Also to do the latter using units from Poland & Bohemia 6 troopers & 4 guns, versus, It. trooper, 3 guns, &, 2 fighters in Vienna. Even if GE. got Vienna back, would it last the round from British, Italian, &, U.S. counterattacks, all looking to claim Vienna. Would GE. declare peace, to get a better deal, who knows, there is no six round(I will never tell).

Next the last Round Robin using this format.

#60. British & French & Italian Empires & U.S.A., versus, AH & German Empires. Here the Axis can aim for one/two Allied capitals at the same time(Paris and Rome), while U.S. & British Empire need to send land forces to help the Fr. & It.(using there most valuable asset the transport). Also control the seas, especially any W.W.I Sea Lion plans Germany may have, which normally leads to a Jutland type sea battle.

The Axis learned that Italy is not the soft underbelly of Europe, perhaps AHE can cut across Northern Italy to attack France from the south. Here it might lead to the AHE navy to be the aggressor, in this game variation.

Round One: AHE builds 2 BBs, to get Fr. & It. in some sort of naval arms race. After all It. & Fr. has 2 provinces that are manned by one trooper, both nations have also undefended islands, much less weakly defended colonies. If the AHE navy breaks out, with its transport(s), definitely could be allot of trouble, for the Allies.

On land taking Venice & Piedmont(forget about Rome) is the half way point for a link up with Germany in France. GE. needs to take Lorraine & Burgundy, after that if the Axis can hold their linkup, Paris is next. Moves all land forces towards Venice, after all Russia and the Balkans are neutral, and, to the west Germany is an ally.

Garrisons from Tryolia & Trieste enter Venice, 12 troopers & 4 guns, versus, It. 6 troopers & 2 guns. Losses Axis 4 troopers & Allies all, Venice has fallen! AHE fleet is so large now, that a attack from Italy or Fr. would probably only damage the BBs(much less if they survive the mine filed).

GE. builds fighter, transport, BB, &, C. Moving all land forces to France(fighter flies from capital to Munich), leaving coastal areas secured(in case of any allies landings). Again Russia is no threat, &, to the east is its ally AHE. Lorraine is invaded from Alsace, 7 troopers & 3 guns, versus, defending Fr. 6 troopers & 2 guns. Losses Axis 2 troopers & Allies 3 troopers, Lorraine is contested!

In Africa troopers from Kamerun & Togoland take undefended British Gold Coast & Nigeria. Trooper & gun from S.W. Africa enters Union of S. Africa & contest it, defended by Brits. trooper & gun(both sides lose a gun). Trooper from GE. E. Africa invades Rhodesia and defeats defending British trooper, colony falls!

At sea with no mine lost, from Kiel BB & 2 C, &, from Sea Zone #5 two subs., &, from S.Z.# 7(going through two sets of minefields) two sub. arrive off London. Versus British Empire BB, 2 C, &, transport, losses Axis damaged BB and 2 subs., &, Allies all.

Now four sets of Allies go, France builds sub.(at Brest), gun, &, 4 troopers. Burgundy garrison reinforces Italians in Piedmont, while Picardy garrison (sans trooper & 2 guns) joins forces in Lorraine. Here 9 troopers, 4 guns, &, fighter from capital, versus, GE. 5 troopers & 3 guns. Losses Allies 6 troopers & Axis all, Lorraine is freed! Paris & Bordeaux garrison move to Burgundy, &, Brest trooper moves to Paris.

In Africa, trooper from Fr. W. Africa enters Gold Coast, versus, defending GE. trooper(both are lost). Algerian trooper moves to Morocco, while trooper from later moves to Fr. W. Africa. Transport off Marseilles picks up trooper from Tunisia and debarks S. France.

Also BB & C & 2 transports off S. France, joins It. navy off in Central Med. Sea. Off Brest BB & transport leave & station themselves off Picardy.

British Empire builds fighter, transport, BB, & submarine(transport off Wales). Repositioning of land forces on islands, in case of Axis landings, &, 2 troopers from Wales board a Fr. transport. Also from Canada C & transport arrive off Scotland & debark trooper & gun.

In Africa trooper from B.E. Africa enters & takes undefended GE. East Africa. Trooper in Union of S.A. attacks invading trooper(both lost), colony still contested. From Sudan a trooper enter Fr. Eq. Africa, while a transport from Egypt lands in Piedmont 2 troopers. Also from Egypt 3 troopers & gun board Fr. 2 transports.

From India transport arrives off East Africa with trooper & gun, while BB & C head for Allied fleet off Rome.

Italy builds fighter, &, 2 troopers. Trooper from Somalia enters British E. Africa, while Roman garrison enters Tuscany. Also Naples trooper enters Rome, &, transport carries trooper & gun to Tuscany from Libya.

U.S.A. builds fighter & 2 transports. From East Coast BB heads for Italy , &, C for Wales.

Round Two: AHE builds 2 trooper, gun, 2 fighters, &, submarine. Moves Venice garrison to Piedmont(even though Tuscany looks like a better choice). Also reinforce Venice with forces from southern AHE. The need to take Piedmont, or, contest it is more important than Tuscany.

Battle 8 troopers & 4 guns, versus, It. 7 troopers & 3 guns, and, British Empire 2 troopers, and, Fr. 6 troopers & 2 guns. Losses
Axis 7 troopers & a gun, &, Allies all 2 troopers each(six troopers total, Piedmont is contested).

At sea the waters off Italy have become transport rich, the AHE fleet leaves home waters, and, enters It. home waters. Three BBs(one damaged by mines), C, &, transport, versus, Allies fleet of It. BB, C, fighter, &, transport, and, Fr. BB, C, & 2 transports, and, British Empire a C & transport. Losses all Axis, &, Allies Fr. & It. BBs are damaged, &, C from Fr. & It. & BE are lost.

GE. builds fighter, transport, trooper, gun, sub., &, BB. Trooper in Nigeria goes back to Kamerun, trooper in Rhodesia moves & takes undefended contested Union of S. Africa. Forces again invade Lorraine from Alsace, of 14 troopers, 6 guns, &, fighter from Munich, versus, Fr. 3 troopers, 4 guns, &, fighter(Allies win air duel). Losses Axis 4 troopers, &, Allies 2 troopers & 4 guns, Lorraine is contested. Also more land units in Germany heading for Lorraine(fighter flies from capital to Munich). .

At sea fleets off London & from Kiel travel to off Wales. Fleet from off London of damaged BB, 2 C, &, 2 submarines(no mine damaged), fleet from off Kiel of BB, C, &, transport has too travel two minefields(C is lost, &, BB damaged). Fighter in London passes on an air attack on fleets.

Off Wales the GE. now combine fleets, versus, Allies British BB, C, sub., &, 2 transports, and, Fr. BB, &, transport, and, U.S.N. Cruiser.
Losses only Fr. transport, &, Brits. damaged BB & transport are left.

Fr. builds 8 troopers. In Africa trooper from Fr. W. Africa, enters & frees undefended British Gold Coast, while trooper from Morocco enters West Africa. BB(already damaged) off Rome goes back to Marseilles for repairs, followed by 2 transports. Also sub. leaves Brest & goes off London.

Trooper from Marseilles & Paris garrison, and, fighter from Lorraine, go to Burgundy. Along with 4 troopers & 2 guns, in Piedmont, counterattack AHE trooper & 3 guns. Losses Allies 3 troopers, &, Axis 3 guns, Piedmont still contested.

British Empire builds fighter, transport(off Wales), BB, &, gun. In Africa trooper from taken GE. E. Africa, enters undefended Rhodesia and frees colony. Indian transport arrives off Union of S. Africa, debarks trooper & gun, versus, defending GE. trooper. Losses Allies a gun, &, Axis all, Union is freed! Also trooper & gun, go from Egypt via transport to Marseilles(from 2 Fr. transports 3 troopers & gun, debark there too).

BB goes from Red Sea to off Italy, while C goes from off Egypt to AHE home waters(no mine lost), versus, submarine(both are lost). Off Picardy from Fr., &, British transport, three troopers & gun land there. Also fighter flies from London to Burgundy, while damaged BB goes from Wales to London.

U.S.A. builds 2 transports, &, submarine. BB arrives off Italy, two transports leave East Coast for Italy(with 3 troopers & gun), &, also fighter flies to Morocco.

Round Three: AHE builds BB, sub., transport, &, trooper. Land forces still heading for southern part of empire, to attack northern Italy.

Fighters fly in from capital, to Trieste, &, Venice. Tuscany looks tempting, if the link up with GE. fails to take Paris, then a possibility of a southern thrust to Rome may take place. Venice garrison moves to Piedmont, AHE 17 troopers & 5 guns versus Fr. trooper & 2 guns(Italians volunteering abandon their province, in order to help the Fr. in Burgundy). Losses Axis 2 troopers & Allies all, Piedmont has fallen! Earlier Tyrolia garrison moved into Venice.

GE. Empire builds gun, 5 troopers, BB, &, Cruiser. Fighter flies from Berlin to seaport of Kiel, while garrison goes from Alsace into Lorraine, &, while more land forces from Southern Germany arrive into Alsace. Battle 21 troopers & 13 guns(with a fighter from Munich), versus, Fr. trooper in Lorraine. Losses a trooper each side, Lorraine falls!

Eq. Africa(defending GE. trooper was eliminated).

Air duel fighter from London, goes to Kiel defended by one fighter, both lost.

Should GE. holds her fleet in port. Like AHE in the Med. Sea, not overwhelming to take out the Allies in the Med. Sea, but, too strong for any one of the Allies to enter its Home Waters.

From Burgundy 6 troopers & gun enter Lorraine, versus, GE. 3 troopers, tank, &, 3 guns. Losses Allies 2 troopers, &, Axis 1 trooper(one hit absorb by tank) & 3 guns, Lorraine is contested!

From Yorkshire trooper & gun enter Scotland, versus, defending GE. trooper & gun. No losses both sides.

Italy builds trooper & submarine. Sends trooper from Tuscany to reinforce Allies in Venice, while Rome a trooper moves to Tuscany. Sub. enters AHE Home Waters(no mine lost), versus, AHE BB, sub., 2 fighters(in Venice), &, transport. Losses Italy submarine & AHE BB damaged, with transport from East Coast arriving off Piedmont.

U.S. builds fighter, 3 troopers, &, gun. In Canada 2 troopers board a Fr. transport, &, in East Coast 2 troopers board a British transport. Also It. transport off Piedmont a trooper & gun debark. Along with fighter from East Coast flies to Ireland.

From Piedmont 2 troopers go to Venice to reinforce U.S. forces there, 3 troopers, 2 guns, &, tank, versus, Axis forces of AHE trooper, 2 guns, tank, &, 2 fighters, and, GE. trooper. Losses Allies U.S. all but tank, &, Axis GE. trooper(tank absorbed a hit) &, 2 guns.

Cruiser off S. France & transport off Piedmont, enters AHE Waters(no mine lost), versus, damaged BB, sub., transport, & 2 fighters(in Venice). Losses U.S. all & AHE fighter & submarine. BB joins British fleet off London.

Peace breaks out, after 8 rounds, the Axis powers find themselves barley holding onto Venice, Lorraine, &, Scotland. True they might get in a better situation if there was a Round Nine naval wise, but, that seems pretty hard in the North Atlantic(more evenly match in the Med. Sea). Even still both empires have long since used up their original land forces, for the GE. it takes rounds for forces to reach France. For the Allies to invade the Axis, especially if the latter buy lots of cheap infantry for defense, would take a long time to get to Berlin/Vienna(also the Allies need to have complete sea dominance, for any sea landings).

This game goes over from a tie to a most minor of Allies victory. To leave contested Scotland, Lorraine, &, Venice, Germany gets back three colonies. The fourth one goes to the Allies.

Losses IPCs Air Fighters Axis 72 and Air Allies 78, tanks none, land forces troopers & guns Axis 532 and Allies 559, Sea Axis 243 & Allies 315.

Re: Axis and Allies 1914 RoundRobin

Hi, the above game ends this sequence of Round Robin, on top of page 12 you can see who won(basically the winner, no notice of say who has a minor/medium type victory).

The next two sets of R.R. are only 2 games each, &, are explained on page 12 also.

But first a quick dissertation of the powers involved: Austro-Hungarian(& a chunk of what would be Yugoslavian) Empire. Starts out with a high IPC value, &, loaded with troops & guns. For defense if her navy stays in port, much less adds a ship per turn, it is hard to make any sea landings. Italy even with the Allies help would still find in hard to break into Trieste. Also Vienna is not far from the borders of the empire.

Why hunker down her naval & armed forces on the Southern Front?, it can participate in a gamble with a other Axis power upon Russia(usually Germany). In regards to Turkey they have to send forces, for an attack for Egypt.

Germany is the heavyweight of the Axis Powers, with a larger land forces of the above, but, also has a large navy. Of course Russia is the best bet to take out first, but, France always seems to be too big a temptation for the Germans. As long as she keeps the land & air units moving into Lorraine, Paris is a possibility! Unfortunately getting involved in sea dominance battles, has a tendency to keep that flow of units going towards Paris endangered.

Ottomans is the weak sister of the Axis Triad. Works best with AHE, as both empires can actually link up, and, help each other out physically. The only empire that in turn one, can be invaded by British on western & eastern portions of the empire, at the same time!


Russia constantly the attention of Axis powers, even when assaulted by two like AHE & GE., three conditions has save them, time and time again. One hunker down in the capital, while building up your land units with plenty of cheap troopers(fighters to keep that gun advantage, &, subs. to help your Home Fleet stop any sea landings), two trade territories for time but keep an trooper in each province to avoid a uncontested conquest, and, three the lack of an unified command structure makes the Axis attack piecemeal.

A few times Moscow has had one of the greatest concentration of Axis and Allies land and air units of the whole game. AHE goes first and kicks the door into Moscow, looses are heavy, but, GE. should finish the job. Russia goes cannot replace all her losses on her turn, but, gets allot of troopers to fill in the ranks. GE. goes and the same happens when AHE had gone before. If the Axis had a unified command setup, even for one turn, Moscow would have fallen.

France always with the Allied armies on the Western Front to help her survive, or, rare times helping Italy from getting overrun by AHE. Still force to build up her forces, until the long awaited counterattack to drive the Germans back into Germany. Here the Allies could use a unified field command option. The first Allied power(sans Russia) to start taking over German colonies, &, after Britain that has a large navy(with those ever so important three transports). France is the glue that holds the Allied cause together.

Great Britain has a large land forces, but, always are located the farthest of where you need them(for example need them in France or Scotland, but, they are located in Canada). Great if you need troops for supporting Italy, but, still having them in India takes a while for them to arrive. Oh well that problem bedevil the British even in W.W.II.

Again and again, the fleet saves the day from German Navy breaking out of the North Sea. Those transports send the forces, that help France/Italy from collapsing.

Italy has the lowest IPCs of any of the Allies, but, yet has a decent land forces and navy at game start. Time and again, playing these variations, her land forces have helped France from being overrun by Germany. As for an invasion by AHE, sea powers like Britain and U.S. start those transport runs, that bring those badly needed reinforcements.

U.S.A. has a IPC level higher than Italy or Ottoman Empire, but, has the lowest land forces setup available at start of the game. It would take several rounds just to purchase the equal of land forces that has Italy/Ottoman forces. Much less the transports to move them there, &, naval escorts for them.

The U.S. truly becomes the arsenal of democracy, naval units to help the Brits. win the Battle of the Atlantic, units to help the French & Italians in Europe, keeping the Axis navy in Med. Sea penned up, taking out GE. colonies in Africa, transporting the Allies where needed, &, so forth. In some scenarios the Axis sue for Peace cause U.S. forces have finally arrived, they cannot compensate for the American forces.

The next set of Round robin is only two games. All Axis versus all Allies, with no minor allies for both sides. Since the Axis powers usually start the game with the most forces, they the Axis will not be on the defensive, just hunkering down inside their empires. All three will try to take out a Allied capital, eliminating London & Washington, as these require constant naval battles. The first game will be taking out Moscow, as all three Axis powers border Russia, the second game will be Rome as being the weakest Allied power on mainline Europe.
