70 9/6/2021 1:14:00 PM Fall 1941 Axis Message You have to SR Stalin while you still have a front line; really hard to do so with gaps/holes in the line which panzers can run through. You could have SR'd on R5, putting Pskov SUa to Elets and Kursk SUa to Voronezh (minimum). On T6, could have moved the fronts in Moscow/Tula to cover Gorki-Penza-Saratov, ensuring start of T3 you can SR Stalin to safety.

Alternative, SR on R6 (can SR SUa's to Kuibishev and Ufa, and Stalin to Kuib for 3SRs) and then able to SR again T3R1.
69 9/6/2021 1:10:00 PM Fall 1941 Axis Message just wanted to see what I'd have drawn:
24 3 / German Reinforcements
21 5 / Herkules
18 2 / Devil's Gardens
16 5 / Speer
9 4 / Hitler Takes Command
4 4 / Taifun
10 2 / Desert Fox

yes, sure thing on another.
Typically, I SR Stalin out on R2T2, possibly R3 if I have the chance to play IE on T2. I do it early, bc the Allies can lose just about everything but Blau and still survive, if Stalin is out of the way. In general, I don't find the 1-3 extra RPs in the early turns worth holding onto Moscow. But that's just me. Axis need to be aggressive to win, and if you're playing with ppl who need VPs as the Axis, then I suspect they are not really playing aggressive (more worried about not losing than winning).

would have discarded this (HDW)
66 9/6/2021 11:59:00 AM Fall 1941 Allied Message And btw, is there 'typical' way of SR Stalin out in this game, based on your experience, if yes, how does it work?
65 9/6/2021 11:54:00 AM Fall 1941 Allied Message I'd just fold here - not drawing the 4 Fronts...

That loss hurts, and maybe I should reconsider my actions last round - but usually I won't consider SR Stalin out - don't have 2 turns to waste.

Still interested in another one?

48 9/6/2021 1:20:00 AM Summer 1941 Allied Message Instead, I think Luga's better.
when Pskov Front is distracted, it takes a Panzer 4MP to gain Leningrad instead of 3,and Soviets can reinforce Novgorod from Moskow, maybe also bring some corps to Luga as a threat, which can hold Leningrad longer.
47 9/6/2021 1:17:00 AM Summer 1941 Allied Play Strategy card as Operations #20: 2 / Paradrop

46 9/6/2021 1:17:00 AM Summer 1941 Axis Message AX not likely to go north - but just pointing out why I think Narva is slightly better than Luga
45 9/6/2021 1:16:00 AM Summer 1941 Axis Message AX not likely to go north - but just pointing out why I think Narva is slightly better than Luga
44 9/6/2021 1:14:00 AM Summer 1941 Allied Message think no AX will go north hence the pskov troops will be finally distracted, and AX ops are so precious in the early, leningrad is just 1vp without anything...
43 9/6/2021 1:12:00 AM Summer 1941 Axis Message IMO, Narva slightly better since more rounds needed to get to Leningrad

If AX go north, 1) move is to Tallinn, 2) attack Narva and advance; 3) move to Luga; 4) attack Leningrad

If defend in Luga, 1) move to Narva, 2) attack Luga and advance; 3) attack Leningrad
