  • Solo Victory Conditions

    Quote from Devious Rancor: “51% of all VP's needed at day-change to trigger a solo victory ” I have only done this a couple of times, but 51% looks good for a solo victory. If it looks paltry to you is probably because you are either a top gun player or you had not had to fight it off with any top gun players (e.g. rated 100) like I had in my last game, where I finished second to one. By the way, solo victories in the tutorial board may look easy for a strong player with weak opposition. But it …

    In some instances some players, like myself, would rather wait for a few days before joining an alliance (e.g. tutorial game, 39 historical map, etc.). The only exception for me so far is my first Endgame 1944 scenario, where I chose country at random and find myself fighting as German Army Group Center- allied automatically with German Army Group West and German Army Group South. The nine countries (3 Western Allies, 3 German groups, and 3 Russian fronts) seemed balanced compared to the 39 hist…

  • In my last game I played South Africa in the 39 Historical Map. I had played 6 games in this map and I don't recall anybody ever playing South Africa! But I recalled that the World Herald always placed South Africa among the top nations in terms of economic leadership. So, I gave it a try. By its isolation, I knew that I would not get wiped out by a super-power early in the game. As a matter of fact, I took over Portugal's and Belgium's neighboring colonies early in the game- Zaire (old Belgian …

    Quote from EZ Dolittle: “in the USA the first thing that runs out is Toilet Paper ” A former co-worker in NASA told me the the main provider of the inner cardboard cylinder of toilet paper rolls is from China. I guess there's a fear that there may be a temporary shortage of such item. Personally, I've been using paper towels. Other people have recommended napkins ... As for the run on water, I have not heard any good reason for such a thing ...

  • Never under-rate a country in the 39 map. Player quality is important. It's map conducive to coalition wins. In my first game as Brazil, I won in coalition with Turkey and Manchuria- the latter not a popular pick. In my current game- I'm South Africa. That's not a popular pick either. But in coalition with the US and Germany, we are 2-3 days short of victory ...

    Quote from BMfox: “all others are laying back complaining about the fact that they have too much time on their hands. ” I know that many restaurants in the US are only doing drive thru & take out. Dine in was 'outlawed' by the Florida governor a few hours ago. I suspect that some lay offs are on the way ...

    Yep ... All thanks to recent changes in the 'Elite AI' software! Apparently you have low popularity because you have attacked without provocation a few AI managed countries ... Should you continue on your aggressive path, they'll declare war on you! This happened to me in the last game, where I had Turkey in the 39 map and was playing rather aggressively ... At one point I was at war with 8 countries- 6 of them AI managed and they all declared war on me! ... I had 2 nights of nearly sleepless ni…
