This was a two player game.
1939
The Germans opened up with the historic moves against Poland and also declared war on the Netherlands.They were successful in capturing both by the end of 1939.
the french started their build up. The British saved money. Since one can build all at once saving money in those turns can certainly add fog of war and keep the German guessing.

1940
the germans invaded belgium and france. They Put up a good fight causing the loss of 4 panzer corps and three infantry corps but in the end Vichy was established on turn 18. Churchill ignored the cries for aid in france and built up his air force. Italy began moves in north africa having received mobilization from the germans they pushed toward Cairo. these moves were countered by the british by building up their armies to defend in cairo and Alexandria. The war at sea started with the 3 uboats sinking 30 msp on their first roll. The british gave up the Mediterranean and placed all three fleets in the north atlantic. The Germans went after crippling the royal navy placing 2 fleets and three uboats in the area. I british style they sunk one fleet and sent the other packing with no losses. The turned on the uboats sinking one and watched the german retreat-- truly their finest hour.

diplomacy-- germans gained romania and hungary as allies. British gained iran as an ally and moved the turks to the allied 2 box. Note keeping the germans out of turkey we feel is necessary not only from a msp perspective but also to keep the russain alive in 1941.

1941

The geramns invaded yugoslavia and captured it on turn 14 for the loss of two infantry steps and one panzer step.

North africa saw bloody fighting for Cairo both sides losing armor steps. The british have just enough to hold and a stalemate occurred. The german/italian had two panzer armies and two inf armies the british -- most of their force pool leaving three infantry corps to defend england. Normay fell on turn 13. The british. Planning an invasion of tobruk to cut the german supply in north africa, were foiled as the german sniffed out the invasion and pulled back from cairo.

The attack on russia began on turn 16 one turn earlier than history and this would prove to be decisive. The Russians bled Infantry corps to save their factories. (The strategy of bleeding small units for space and time does not work for the russians as they will need those msp and units to defend more important area late). the germans attacking on 7+ table quickly eliminated 14 infantry corps in the first two turns. the russians fled building forts in Leningrad and moscow. The germans poured into russia and finaly ran into still resistance around moscow and leningrad. Comiiting two tank armies and the finns they took leningrad on turn 19-- just before the mud. Forts were built in rostov and staligrad and the russians built an excellent defense line around moscow and the Don river line. With only one tank army in the south the germans finally took rostov and held up for winter.

The Turks joined the british as an ally and invaded byulgaria. the response was quick with three german armies shutting down taking bulgaria. the british failed miserably on 4 roll of trying to move the greek government to ally. The germans were more successful Spain joined thier side and with the help of germans surrounded gibraltar. The british again had just enough to hold against the attacks as the german air was in russia the RAF was able to cause losses on the Spanish losing 4 steps to one. The geramns halted the attacks at the end of 41.

1942

Help was on the way as the siberians showed up in force. the russains 15 infantry in the winter and counterattacked around kursk and kharkov killing a Hungarian army and 2 Romanian infantry corps for the loss of one. The spring came and an allout push surrounded moscow. and it fell on turn 26. the russains were battered on all fronts as the germans pushed toward stanlingrad. The sued for peace on turn 30. The turks felt the wrath of the german army and were defeated on turn 26. the german pushhed 3 panzer corps and one infantry army towards baku. Russians had to strip off need armies to hold in the mountains. The british and americans had to help. They invaded spain on trun 27 taking barcelona and corunna cutting the german supply. Partisans in france stopped any reinforcements from arriving quickly. The germans and spanish were eliminated on turn 29 and Spain was conquered. the germans built a defense line in the south of France.The Italians retreated out of africa to defend their home country of invasion. with the apprearance of the german air force and reserves form russia the aliies called the game. the germans owned 14 victory hexes. and had 325 msp per turn.

thoughts

The russian has a tough time holding the key spaces in russia. Previous games rewarded throwing in small units to slow the german player down as they could be rebuilt easily. this is not the case with this game. the soviet has 155 msp and can only build 4 infantry steps per turn. They can obviously not get ahead of the loss rate by losing 5 or more. We are open to soviet strategies!! The germans teched up their tanks to level 5 this allows them to take the fortified cities. 2 6 factor tanks plus a three headquarters + tech = 18 strength points plus any flank support. the best the russian can do is a fort + 4 infantry army + 2 corps + 3 HQ city for 16. With 2 air the Germans will win the attrition battle. Overall this game allows one to explore an infinite number of strategies on both sides and no two games will be alike-- lots of play. We also played that the parent player gets the MSP of minors if war is declared on them.
