58 6/17/2018 8:21:00 AM Summer 1941 Axis Message I agree with your assesment on the timing for reinforcements. If in the early stages Russia looses too many units it has no means to delay the Axis.

Remember though that I bidded one VP so for Auto-win I would need 21.

Having said that, you need to protect: Stalingrad, Saratov, Gorki and to a lesser extent even Maikop. I wouldn't bother with Sevastopol.

Not having Stalin cripples replacements and some yellow cards.

If you feel the game is too compromised we can start a new one, no problem.
