Re: Alpha +3

I would like to see the German NO for control of London back. There was, historically, a plan to invade London. Of all the NOs in the game, that one probably made the most sense of all. Besides, with London in German control and American submarines in SZ 109, at least Germany could get 5 IPC out of...

Re: Defending Larry's Alpha +3

Jen, Q isn't saying you should attack Russia w/ Japan. He asked the opposite question, what happens when RUSSIA attacks JAPAN? That causes Japan problems for the reasons you stated, Japan doesn't have enough ground troops to fight Russia, China and India. If Germany goes Sea Lion, then Russia can do...

Re: Alpha +3

Historically speaking, the measily 10 IPCs that the USA gets for going to war is a joke compared to what it actually produced. Giving the USA its combined totals for the two theater level games would still probably be to little. In the real war the USA outproduced all Axis nations combined, produced...

Re: A&A Global re-issue--Revised Rule Book

I would be willing to pay for a copy of the new rule book if it came with stuff like plastic AA guns, more Axis roundels, damage markers, a chart for tracking all the new NO's and some more gray chips.

Re: How to end the debate and move on with A3

I get that you feel you are being treated unfairly on another site. Sure that's frustrating. HOWEVER, what I don't get is why you can't let it go. Right now as I'm writing this there are children dying of cancer, children going to bed hungry, people losing thier homes because they've been out of wor...

Re: Alpha +3

Mexico? Really? They were a puppet of the Americans then? Why is this even an NO? Because the creators were trying to think of ways to boost American income, I'll wager. It's a decent thought, but really, kinda weird if you think about it. The Mexico NO came about because it was a way to split up t...

Re: Convoy Disruptions as of 10/10/11

WB, I like the idea of moving convoy raiding to the start of the victim's turn. At first glance it seems to have the advantages of Larry's first convoy raiding system without the accounting problems. What I liked best in the first system was that you got to raid a lot more before your subs got sunk,...

Q,

Dice are rolled in the victim's Collect Income Phase, not your Combat Phase.
