Hah! Since tocaff started an AFB thread I thought we JFB should not be outdone whatsoever.

Let the confessions begin...

Five things I've found helpful as an Allied player:

1. Create alternate screen identify "NYGiants" and frequently log on, pretending to "help" John run his economy.
2. "Accidentally" misclick on his AAR and fail to notice until after reading 20 to 22 posts. Rinse. Repeat.
3. Every day, go to Subway for lunch, order foot-long, name it "John III," light three dark candles, and stick toothpicks in sub while crying "Banzai! Banzai! Banzai!"
4. Bribe LaSalle, Colorado, police department to commit acts of sabotage against John: car hits power pole knocking out power; computer crashes; new computer needed; Platte River floods; wife catches virus; John hurts ankle; employees call in sick; boss offers to sell business but then decides at last minute to renegotiate and ask for 5x the price. IE, keep John in turmoil and exhausted.
5. Occasionally accidentally "forget" house rules, using 4EB to bomb huge stacks in open; using 4EB at 2,000 feet against enemy shipping; send restricted units from India all the say to Singapore before remembering they're restricted; remind John of miscellaneous house rules that he's forgotten but that actually never existed, like "Japan has to pay full PP for any unit - including unrestricted units - to move from one hex to another.

Not to be outdone by tocaff. I too have a desire to have a look at what the enemy has under the hood. I know I won't be disappointed at least after the first couple of years.

Have you reached the step where you atone for your sins yet? Sending money to forumites sounds like a good way to do it ...

I never understood my love for the Axis/Confederate side of games. Goes all the way back to Iron Bottom Sound. LOVED that game and still have it as well as Destroyer Captain and the other of that trilogy. My boys are learning how to play it presently.

A good family friend finally cleared up my confusion on the whole good--bad thing. My family is from North Kansas City. Well...come to find out that NORTH Kansas City was actually SOUTHERN during the Civil War. It explains SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO many things in life...

Aye. Start with those that just received their Matrix 15 year anniversary coupon for a free game and then work your way through the bilge that started in 2010+.

Being a true JFB I don't go to that other thread, so I would not see what's there to switch. Not to mention the purpose

The sign reminds me of a certain weekend facility in Saigon, a place that I of high moral standards would never have dreamed of visiting had I had the chance. The "uniform" won't do it either.
