Board Game Night: Axis & Allies Pt I
Rainy day at the Trailer. After a couple rounds of Connect4 and Othello w/ the various 'Powers, I broke out my old Axis & Allies game to teach them.
Boys vs Girls
4thPower Alpha (boy): Russia (by request)
4thPower Bravo (girl): Germany (by request) & Japan (by default)
5thPower (boy): USA.
CinC chose not to play.
Set up and gave them a rundown of the rules. They're still figuring things out but they all have an obsession w/ hoarding their money and buying Industrial Complexes. Lots of combat over Manchuria, Australia, and N. Africa. Germany's AA is frighteningly accurate having shot down two of my bombers in subsequent turns. Russia is wide open but is planning on a massive armor purchase next turn.
After two rounds before we paused for the evening:
Alpha left himself open for attack and Bravo took advantage of it.
