Re: American Insignia

I researched the United States Army Air Corps insignia and found out that the current insignia used in Axis & Allies was replaced in May 1942 because the red dot in the center of the star kept being mistaken for the Japanese rising sun because of its resemblance to that very symbol. Axis & Allies t...

Re: Alternate 1941 setup for Global

Yeah, actually, the more I think about it a 42 setup would be better than a 41 setup, although I still would love both. 41 and 40 have a lot in common, but 42 would be "more different." The level of change would be sufficient to warrant the product. A LH-produced 42 setup for the Global game would s...

Re: Alternate 1941 setup for Global

The 1940 game does allow pearl to not be attacked, even more so than the AA50 1941 setup. But it does force Japan to go to war with the US, and it will force Germany and the USSR into war. So how open things really are is a bit open to interpretation. And '41 has plenty of bloodshed, think of the Ge...

Re: Alternate 1941 setup for Global

In the sake of playing devil's advocate, the 1941 setup for AA50 is pretty determined too. Japan has to take the Indies and Philippines, Italy always either goes after Gibraltar or Egypt, and Germany always goes after the Royal Navy and does a massive land attack on Russia. Every time. There are a c...

Re: Alternate 1941 setup for Global

Why a 1941 setup? Why not a 1942 setup? Why not both? Design both scenarios and then charge $30 for them along with something physical. Perhaps add another unit and the extra setup expansion comes with them for all the nations. Or maybe the extra setups come in a deluxe box designed to hold all the...

Re: European Map Design

You use Google translator. They are correct translations, I'll call it White Russia. You can call it Moscow or Orel or Kursk territory, I will be sure to pass the modern based translator to the makers of every map including ones published in 1939-42. Your defining truth based on what the internet s...

Re: Criticism of the Map of Manchuria

There is no such territory as Amur. It's called Primorskiy Krai. Primorskiy after Primorskiy Krai, the farthest east territory in Russia. There is no such territory as Buryatia SSR. If Buryatia was an SSR, there would 16 republics, instead of 15. It's inaccurate to call it Buryatia SSR, when it sho...

Re: Russia's war aims...

It true that the Western Allies and the USSR in WWII were shoulder to shoulder looking over each other's shoulder. :lol: But seriously, what mechanic could we use to represent this? Even by 1940 its true that the USSR's fate in the war was far from decided. I think, though, that's it going to be lik...
