Re: USA economy

The question is, can just Japan or just Germany win against both the US and britain? (conisidering Japan makes 100 ipcs a turn in itself) IE: If USA goes kill germany/italy first, then russia will fall around the same time Germany/italy are neutered(either conquered or turtling in their capital). Ev...

Gameplay mechanics: Defensive reinforcements, capital loss

Axis and Allies has come a long way since classic, but there are still some "gamey" tactics still alive that bug me, as they neither represent reality at all nor do they add to the fun factor of the game. These can be traced to two sources, one game mechanic that needs modification, and another that...

Re: AAE40: my take

Historical accuracy is nice and all, but since we are trying to talk about balancing a game lets look at this from a balance standpoint. Ahistorical as it might be, the English navy has always been designed to die for the sake of balance. The problem dealing with Italy is this: -Italy is an Axis pla...

Re: Italy crush

But is it one point for good game balance? We will have to see with repeated games whether or not italy can recover from this opening move that the play testers may or may not have anticipated. For those not in the know, the exact move is this: Tactical bomber and destroyer off of spain hit the west...

Re: Balancing Pacific 1940

I just want to summarize some of the points made by everyone to make clear what the problems are/aren't, why they are problems, and how we are trying to fix these problems. OOB J1 attack/J3 india crush is overpowered OOB J2/J3 attack seems fairly balanced. Two issues that are interconnected are 1. I...

To my Grandfathers

Both my Grandfathers were members of the Canadian army during WWII. The one on my Mother's side was a Staff Sergeant which performed clerical work, a seemingly unheroic role, but without an efficient support system an army simply can not function. The one on my Fathers side was a gunner of an M-10 "...

Re: Can it work? I hope so! But...

forget pictures if the game is done, why not release it already? why torture us for another two months? It takes time to market, mass produce, and distribute games to retailers. Wizard may also have marketing reasons to hold it back as well. I'm excited for this game, looking forwards to a marathon...
