Post by stjeand »

The is a game between myself and ComadrejaKorp to show how bad it is for the Axis with an Allied all in France.
PLEASE feel free to comment/ask questions. I will try to take my time to explain my process...and may even change it if suggestions are good.

It Begins

Post by stjeand »

It is September 1, 1939…
The German people are readying for Octoberfest. They decide that it would be best to invite their neighbors the Polish people. The Polish government declines the invite as they will be too busy delivering their paczkis to the French festival of Septemberfest. Now there will be no paczkis at Octoberfest. This infuriates the German government and they declare war.
To the west the French Empire and United Kingdom learn of this, and now know that all roads to France will be blocked and no paczkis will make it there. So they declare war on German.

And with that…we begin.
The Germans start with some rail movement readying for their invasion of Denmark on turn 2.

1 of my ancestors, Captain Gardiner, was allegedly the only surviving officer from the charge of the light brigade and my family still has his stuff. Sadly my father wasn't the eldest son so I did't inherit it. I'm sure he would have appreciated what you are doing.

Reality check - more recent research has shown that he wasn't the only surviving officer.

To strat bomb or not to strat bomb...that is the question.
On one hand you hit French production. On the other hand you take air losses IF it is being defended.

I decided to hit Lille...
The bombing of Lille ensues...before the crazy Allies can relocate their AA
No air on defense...12 hits to production. I can see he removed his AA from Paris and elsewhere and they will be in Lille next turn. That may change things.
But 12 damage will last a little while.
Use my fighters to strat bomb...and do gain 1 on one of them.
Bombers gain 4 total, 2 on 1, 1 on 2.exp

Denmark falls.

Stukas bomb for free experience. One gains 2 the other 1...so good result.

Sorry but I am reluctant to show my method for taking Denmark not using armor and not using landing craft in 1 turn.
Have to keep one secret.
Not seen anyone use it yet...but I suspect someone else has figured it out by now.


Garrison all units I can so that I can get some PP for early armor...

Able to build 2 Armor this turn.

Research for Breakthrough going well..already gained a month.

All the others just moving s l o w l y
