The Long Game: G40+2 Report

Just finished our first global complete game of Alpha +2, definitely like the changes.

Re: Tanks in AA1940

Very rarely do you run tanks in without support on near-equal stacks of infantry; you only do so if you're desperate or greatly outnumber the defenders.

Re: Has Tech slipped through Alpha's Cracks?

My group came up independently with the Research Points (RP) method, which from reading these posts seems to bare a resemblance to the AA50 rules.
