932 7/31/2020 1:47:00 PM Spring 1945 Axis Message I think it probably makes sense to switch sides and play another learning game from the Allied side.

This way you can help me through the first few turns so I can avoid being overun.

Does that makes sense?
931 7/31/2020 12:21:00 PM Spring 1945 Allied Message I'm OK either way. Maybe roll a die?
930 7/31/2020 12:11:00 PM Spring 1945 Axis Message So same sides or should we do another learning game with switching sides?
929 7/31/2020 12:07:00 PM Spring 1945 Allied Message Love to play, as BtoB is one of my favorite games.

Start us up!
928 7/31/2020 11:39:00 AM Spring 1945 Axis Message The beauty of CDG's is the opportunity for Al history. The old Avalon Hill games were great for their day but they were more like puzzles. Once you figured out how to play them there wasn't much re-playability in them.

What I also liked that even as the Axis go on the defensive for the second half of the game there are opportunities for some well timed counter offensives that it makes it interesting and keeps the Allies on their toes.

Its amazing how overpowering the Russians eventually become.

------------------------------------------

Also, as you said I can see how some strategically placed well timed trenches in RU would be helpful.

I'd be happy to play again if you are interested.

926 7/31/2020 11:16:00 AM Spring 1945 Allied Message I have always like BtoB. It's critics always complain about Events being dependent on certain pre-req's, and if you don't draw out your cards just right, then you are screwed. That's true, but the randomness of the cards is what makes the game replayable. You have to constantly adjust your strategy based on the cards you are dealt.

It also allows for a lot of alt-history. I have seen the Germans invade Sweden after CASABLANCA to grab the 1VP. I have never seen anyone invade Turkey. It is just too difficult to capture. But I have seen the Axis sweep through Egypt and into Syria. As the Allied Player, I was had to enter US Armies in Basra, and fight back into North Africa, because TORCH was buried in the deck.
925 7/31/2020 11:08:00 AM Spring 1945 Allied Message I agree, not getting the PzAA on the map made it easier for the Allies to sweep North Africa, and probably started the Italian Campaign earlier than the Axis were ready for. And the fact that all your reinforcement cards were buried at the bottom of the deck didn't help.

Also, I seen the EAST WALL event played often. Having three trenches placed in strategic choke points goes a long way to slowing down the Soviet steamroller. It is also good for the Romanian and Hungarian Allies to die in the Soviet Union, rather than their home turf. Anything to keep the Soviets out of Germany for a few more Action Rounds.
924 7/31/2020 11:04:00 AM Spring 1945 Allied Message More VP victories, although it comes down to battling for different cities in Germany that are both a VP space and a Supply Source. That's why THE BUNKER or the NATIONAL REDOUBT usually get played as Events. It makes the Supply Center Victory more difficult. Plus, there are enough VP spaces and event cards that provide VP's to allow the Allied Player to get a VP Victory. It doesn't seem like it at the time when TOTALER KRIEG puts the VP Level to something like 36 or 37, but it's doable.
923 7/30/2020 11:10:00 PM Spring 1945 Axis Message ith that, the dam breaks.

I was hoping to hold out until the last turn but I had two 3 Op cards and 3 two Op cards so I didnt have enough flexibility with movement.

A fun game, I enjoyed it.

You weren't kidding when you said a rookie would struggle against an experienced player. Certainly the Allies need to be careful early in the game.

I liked how the Axis have a legitimate chance to win the game early. Both sides get their chance to go from offensive to defensive.

A few thoughts:

It was probably a mistake not to hold on to Panzer Africa card. Even if you dont play it in the first 13 action rounds, it's good to play it to make the Allies at least work for North Africa.

I should have pulled back into defensive position on the Eastern front sooner.

I guess it would be nice to have units on the beach for Overlord if you can spare the units and Ops.

I can see why you said to try to keep your RPs up as the Axis. Later in the game it would have been nice to have some of those corps and panzer corps available.

I can see the challenge for the Allies later in the game how to use their OPs. They can attack anywhere they want, they just cant attack everywhere.

With Allied wins, do you see more Vp wins or supply center wins?

841 7/26/2020 4:34:00 PM Winter 1945 Allied Message There is no issue with rebuilding the GE (8th) in Breslau, so I will put it there.

You still have 2 AX RP to spend. 1RP should be used to build a HUc into the RB [2.0].

I don't see much of use for the other 1RP, unless you are planning to re-conquer Romania or Bulgaria.
