We rolled out the classic again this Sunday with a couple twists. In the first game we used the tech houses. 10 IPC's bought you a black Monopoly house which you could place in any of your territories. At the beginning of every round you get to try for a 6 for every lab you own. It's a bit cost restrictive and only Japan and USA got them in the first game.
USA did pretty good with it Japan not so much.
Soviets took Berlin
In game two we decided to use cards, which are an enhancement Ray came up with long ago, you buy cards 2 for 5 IPC's or 1 for 3. these cards will tell you to deploy a free Bomber, for yourself or the enemy, which you would do right away. Other cards might be kept to play at a strategic moment. Anyway it makes an old game new again and is fun once in a while.
Soviets almost take Berlin before the white flag is dropped
