Re: Alpha+.1 Theorycrafting

"2 fighters against an 18 battleship?" I know! The Ion Cannon will protect you! 18 Battleships are nuts... We used to use cheap battleships in some variants we played, they have a painful exponential factor when merged together, and you end up getting these strafing navies that are absolutely brutal...

Re: Will Global ever be sold in one box?

You could do it through a series of pre-order marketting. Committ to buying a copy, deposit down. Once they have 2500 orders or whatever, it ships out. You would see it happen. The fans would get what they wanted, and WOTC would make a killing on the profit per sale. You'd get the fans out there mar...

Re: Alpha+.1

Also, I think the rule regarding the USA being able to declare war if London or a North American territory is captured by the axis should be revised. It would be more condusive if it read: 10. The United States may declare war on the Axis if London and/or any territory in North America is "attacked"...

Re: Alpha+.1

Ultimate Game Balancer, that is a fix to bad dice, unequal experience, and so on. Seperate Victory Conditions for Russia, and perhaps China! (Lol I know right?) Russian Victory Conditions make the game ALOT of fun, sometimes I've allowed Mongolia to be pro-comintern, makes it interesting, and I've m...

Re: Will Global ever be sold in one box?

I could make it fit. Call it Axis and Allies UNLIMITED. $400, tons of extra pieces, all the lessons learned, and erratta updated, in a BIG ammo crate with handles on either side. ability to play Euro/Pac/1940 and add anniversary (Just add the rule book and the map). Give each country a national box,...

Re: Allies winning all the time?

I've played 5 games of Global, all with Alpha rules, and all as the German Player. Axis have yet to lose, however, it's the steepest climb to economic parity I've ever seen for an A&A game. And I see the balance in favour of the Allies. I think the key point I've noted over and over, is that Experie...

Re: Alpha + // Play test version

What's it going to take to make Argentina Pro-Axis? I've used this rule in a few games, it certainly makes for some interesting moments. And finally brings South America into the game of Axis and Allies. Setting an objective there for the Axis, provides alot of options later. Alpha+ rules look excel...
