ElvisJJonesRambo (Allies) gets win over ThunderLizard2 (Axis).
Summary: Finally snapped ThunderLizard2 win streak over me. Was a complete grind, a Turkey grind for sure. Lizardman loves his diplomacy, he converted Turkey, Sweden, Vichy France. This game, I didn't bother to use the pen, stuck with the sword. Tired of Turkey joining his Axis every game, sent all Allies to the Middle East. Was bogged down for 2+ years. Fought in Persia, Iraq, Syria, Turkey, name it. He held Libya until the end of the game. Russia was on the ropes, Panzers touched the Ural Mountains, and South Western gates of Moscow.
Sent enough firepower to Turkey, to get Gerry's attention from Russia, that was a must, at a minimum. Supply sux there for Allies, lucky to get anything > 5. Also, a long sail from New York Harbor. Built half dozen forts in Syria to hold off his early Holy Lands invasion.
In the Pacific, was able to nickel & dime my way through the dangerous waters early on. Picked off a Carrier in Truk, he backed off. Tojo was more concerned with the Chinese Hoard. The future Commies mixed with Chang High Check's Army to kill Japanese on the ground, they were the real heroes. The Yanks were pleased with their partners making it across Manachuria and clearing the 38th parallel of Korea. Japs ate a nuke, but the glory goes to China.
Another reason I decided to go "hyper-Turkey", last game I lose to Lizard, I was complaining of the rain in England/France. Not much liquid air in Turkey/Syria/Iraq.
