Some folks asking questions on BGG about the ‘Italian mess’, the ahistorical invasion of Italy and subsequent collapse. Here are some more details for you and a few comments.
This was all 3 months ago or there abouts. I believe we played correctly, and I also do not personally have an issue with how this unfolds in the game.
Some criticism about Corps being landed with no air support and no this and no that….Well ok. You work with the system and the rules as they are. If it buggers your view of history, ya need to move on or house rule.
In this instance it would make sense to see some sort of house rule on how invasions may be conducted or how the Collapse rules work for a given country. I can see what happened in my minds eye. Just as I can see the absolute ass kicking the Allies took D-Day in a recent game of MMP’s The Mighty Endeavour.
Sit about and monday morning QB’ing saying a game is broken is weak sport. Just because the railroad history you prefer does not come about EVERY time.
Any way we sunk that bloody fleet.
Then the unopposed landings. This activates the collapse. Italy is out of the war for the Axis. Subsequent shipping pressed units into Trieste and other locals.
