I am looking for experienced Japan player for scn1.
HRs open to discussion.
Variable game pace. Obviously, first few turns will take longer. Usually I can do one turn a day, sometimes more but most of the weekends I am out of home.

It's more and more difficult to find a decent jap on the market nowadays😄

I would say there always have been abundant players willing to play Allies but no so many Japan.

I have already played IJ side 2x in grand campaign("AI") and playing right now in a PBM. Otherwise I would be open to a game (also IJ side is more time consuming).

But I would play Allies, have them played only 2x("AI") and not PBM only a small scen I guess I could put out turns also much faster as Allies (I am normally very slow PBM player)

You also have "Alfa" in your name, so we should match up

I am an experienced Japanese player but for me now as good as the game is the Allies can just sit back and do very little and just wait until there unstoppable then go at it! Not enough pressure by the game is put on the Allies to defend things, should be more points VP for places on the map! So japan has a chance to win in 43 as I feel the balance is not right!

Passive allied play is boring for both sides. So would you be up for a game?

a good japanese player does not need any advantage (HR or scenario) to put up a fierce and long resistance to the allied powers. and I know at least two.

I am an average Jap player but there is no way I can do a turn per day early on in the war.

Hi there. I might be interested in a game. I've played Japan exclusively since the old WitP back in 2003.

I'm one of the old farts, but took close to a year off and just came back. The itch is back. One thing I tried but do not like is multi-day turns. If you want to do that, then I'm sorry but I can't play. Other than that, I'm ok with most house rules. Do you have any thoughts on house rules? I'll look up the house rules I used in my years long game that unfortunately ended in Jan 44.

I'm not the type to abuse the engine to my advantage. Ask any of the old timers about me.

I have also WitE2 on my hands so definitely won't be able to do multiple turns per day as well. Regarding HRs if you have some list, please share, at least I don't have to compile one. Other option is no HRs but most things that can be abused by empire can Allies do much better later.
I am also not the type who is abusing the game or doing unjustified gambles.

Now that's an opponent. Mike may 'not abuse the engine', but I don't think that applies to his adversaries.

He knows the game well and should be a tough player.

Good to see you back.

P.S. I learned a lot from him.

Its your game, and this is just my .02, but IMHO this just simply leads to the 'Battle of India' as Japan rolls right through China from Manchukuo. Then its on to India through Burma. Unless that's the kind of game you want.

BTW this should lead to a Japanese win through VP at the end of '43.

Not really. If the Japanese invade in force from Manchukuo, the the Chinese roll into India via Burma. It will be hard to take India with 30,000+ Chinese AV backed by Indian and British INF and ART.

Who said anything about taking India. Japan will simply win by points with what she may do without an HR.

Some do, some don't. I will prefer HR's too, if I ever free enough time to do a PBEM game.

Final word, you are wrong about this. I have done it and still won the game. There are not enough base points available in China to give Japan an AV.

Indeed he is wrong. In worst case scenario all the WC, South Pacific, Gulf of Aden/Arabian Sea bases(x10-20(Caledonia x50) VPs) can be build up.
I might be wrong, but if two competent players have a game, there is no way Japan can win on victory points. WitP is about the journey, not victory screen.

Hi Guys,

I'm a play tester for a board war-game company (since 2015) and still do that to this day. It's The Gamers (part of Multi-Man Publishing) if anyone is interested. I'm doing quite a bit of play testing right now. I also retired at the beginning of the year but am traveling quite a bit with my wife. I seem to be busier now than when I was working. I really want to start a new game but need a day or two to commit. So, I will make a decision this week.

House rules I like:

Pay PPs to allow units to move across a national border. That seems obvious to me to prevent some of the things you guys were discussing above. The only exception I recall is allowing the Thai units to move 4 hexes across their borders.

I'm not for any restrictions on max height for planes. The plane types account for that pretty nicely.

4E bombing below 10k? Even though the morale drops pretty quickly, it can be rather devastating. I'd rather not allow that.

Off the top of my head, I can't think of anything else. It's been awhile though....

Edit: Sorry for the delay, but I was on the road all day yesterday.

I would add the classic T1 HRs

- No CV hunting
- Allies can't issue any orders with exception of TFs already at sea and the Chinese
- And maybe some limits how far the magic invasion TFs can teleport(?)
