Hi guys here is our report about our global war playing by Vassal.
We are playing with all expansions (except Lif and Fif), all optional rules (except tankers and intelligence) and the 2d10 system.
It's our first global ever so don't be shy to give us advices or comments :)
Hope you enjoy it, sorry for the mistakes, my english is pretty bad.
Me - Germany and Italy
Federico - Japan
Alle - Allies
We are looking for another italian guy for the allies, if someone of you know any italian players please write me on bgg.
I stole the ideas of open description from nailsworthnobby and his postcard from the edge, hope he doesn't mind, but I will delete it if he prefers :)
- The beginning of September 1942 was pretty hard, while Italian the surface fleet was harmless their subs were very aggressive. -

Bad weather over the Europe, the German fix their supply lines to Sweden.
The Italian subs launch an hard series of attack, in three different assault the Italian wolfpack find and sink 2 cp, 1 ASW, damage 2 escorting ships and sink a Trs with a plane on it, then disappear under the sea suffering only minor damage (1 sub damaged).
The RN send her surface fleet to attack the RM in the Italian sea, the battle sees the Italian badly surprise, the Littorio, hit several times, burst and sink in 2 hours, other ships are damage while the CW suffer the losses only of few ships.
Italian leave the area.
Master of the sea the RN launch a port attack to La Spezia, the brave Italian pilots with their Macchi fly against the enemy flock, an escroting ftr is shooted down and the other reppelled, the attack fails.
The Red Army push on her offensive, in a big air battle (about 10 airplanes total) a Russina bomber is shooted down, the assault push back the German without losses.
In Asia very few movements due to bad weather, Japanese reinforce their line and IJN subs sinks 2 CW cp.
In the end of October CW and US decides for a combinate action of paradropping, 2 group of Parà approach Le Havre, in a wild air battle the Spitfire protect the important cargo shooting down a Italian aircraft.
Helped from air and sea the Parà take the city without any losses.
Russian 4, Italian 17, CW 23
Why on earth would I object?
Excellent work - and I suspect much easier to follow than my ramblings.
