Re: ORIGINS game report

I watched Questioneers game, but don't think they were playing the rules as intended. Their interpretation of the rules determined that any territory controlled by the enemy, but without troops was not a “hostile” territory. As such, they were allowing units to move 2 territories and capture these “...

Re: Potential 1914 TOURNAMENT RULES

So are we talking here about a simple majority of total IPC incomes at the end of the last round, regardless of how many each side started with (rather than net gain?) In the games we've played so far the side that was ahead in IPCs was winning on the game board. How many rounds would it take for t...

Re: Potential 1914 TOURNAMENT RULES

I'll be at Orgins in Columbus this weekend so I hope to observe some games in progress there and see what kind of feedback I can gather from those playing 1914. One thing about this game, and all the franchise A&A games is that victory conditions aside, our group pretty much knows when the games hav...

Re: Potential 1914 TOURNAMENT RULES

My question to you.... Would another round of two have pushed the point system towards an allied point victory, as I suspect it would have, or is the point system totally undependable as a means of measuring victories? Larry, Ok, counting contested and looking down the road as to what would “likely...

Re: USW and Sub survivability

They should represent all the ASW capable ships. Which would be at the beginning of the war would be nothing: In 1914 the U-boat's chief advantage was to submerge; surface ships had no means to detect a submarine underwater, and no means to attack even if they could, while in the torpedo the U-boat...

Thanks Bill. We're still playing the Tournament rules as Larry wrote them to provide feedback for now, but we may give that a try here in the future.

Re: USW and Sub survivability

Hi Bill, Just want to point out that your still trying to make something that was not the case in WWI. Destroyers in this time period were not used for anti-sub warfare to any effect. In fact they were really torpedo boats and their roll was to screen the main battlefleet of capital ships, put out s...

Re: Potential 1914 TOURNAMENT RULES

I suspect you're doing this wrong. With the allies controlling Alsace and Mesopotamia, alone, they have 6 points. How are you getting 8 and 5? Germany controlled Ukraine, Belarus and Poland. 8 points Allies had Mesopotamia and Smyrna only. 5 points Alsace was only contested, so no point awarded cor...
