Re: Three territory Japan

In a way America's ignorance of other minor cultural differences across the globe is a beautiful thing. Makes them Europeans look silly for fighting amongst themselves. Now if only we could look past the skin color issues over here.....Seriously, I don't care if you call the state I was born in Miss...

Re: SCENARIO ALPHA PACIFIC 40

Larry, I was just thinking last night that you must have spent years balancing Sea Lion perfectly in the Global game w/erratica set up. Yes Germany can do it maybe on round three. Probably on round four, but if Germany takes England on round four then an awake Russian player takes an empty Poland in...

Re: SCENARIO ALPHA PACIFIC 40

I think Global is pretty balanced. The attacker always needs a certain understanding advantage to win though. As I get more comfortable with the Axis I try the riskier strategies which lead them to victory. *********** Sea Lion is cool but really weakens Germany, agreed. In real life the Germans fel...

Re: A Polite Request for an "official" 1941 or 1942 Global S

Hello and thanks for a good game already. In my opinion a 42 start would make for the quickest, most different game so it would be most desirable. Seems it would take four turns off game play. Four turns I love of course, the 40 start is SOOO flexible. I realize this is was easy task. Coming up with...

Re: Play online

I'm new so perhaps this is taboo here, but the computer player is the only difficult thing about programming an online Axis & Allies game. This is essentially the same program which was made 10(?) years ago. I'd put up with a couple low bandwidth ads and a $.99 app fee (maybe more, shucks). So yes, ...

A Polite Request for an "official" 1941 or 1942 Global Start

I love Global 40. It is a big long game that even with the most dedicated opponent takes two or more nights to finish. For that reason I still have my home made 50th Anniversary game. Any rumors of alternate Larry Harris set ups to start Global "more into the war"? An early 41 start would have the p...
