A new player called Michael joined us for two good games of Quartermaster General.
First game: Phil Russia, Mike USA and Bruce UK, played Darryl Japan, Alex Germany and Michael Italy. The two western powers concentrated on Japan leaving Russia to fend for itself. Russia seemed to be doing so well he also helped against Japan and then fell foul of Alex’s blitzkrieg into Moscow! The VP’s kept piling on for the Axis and even with Russia soon back in the game it was too much too late from the Allies. Axis victory at turn 20, well played.
Second game: Alex Russia, Phil USA, Darrl UK, played Michael Japan, Bruce Germany and Mike Italy. This time USA started out strong in Schezuan holding up Japan a little while. Russia held off the Axis Eastern front whilst UK and USA fenced on the Western Front which was then heavily fortified. Eventually the UK got into North Africa thanks to lots of lend lease from the USA. This depleted the USA a fair bit allowing Japan eventually to conquer the seas and create a nice VP empire but US and UK held onto the mainland VPs for most of the game. Eventually USA got into the Mediterranean and invaded Italy; though with a depleted draw pile (lots of lend lease, use of radar and economic warfare took its toll). The VP’s proved to be moving too fast for the Axis once Italy fell and the game ended a little early with an Allied Victory at this point. Well played Allies.
