Re: Removing Factories: Replacing them with VCs

Building an Industrial complex is indeed an important strategic decision for at least the UK and Japan. Thus any changes deeply affect gameplay. To keep things simple I would suggest a much less complicated scheme. How about two simple rules concerning Industrial complexes: 1. No new factories may b...

Re: Balance Issues in 1942.2

Hi Black Elk, interesting thoughts - especially about the Russian Bomber and the NAP. But I think you get one thing wrong with the NAP: Russia may recapture British territories from Japan if it can afford to do so. The NAP just prohibits Japanese attacks on territories originally controlled by Russi...

Re: Balance Issues?

After several A&A 1941 games with my sons as well as a friend of mine (including the official setup changes and the Non-Aggression pact) I would draw following conclusions: game balance is good; if both sides don't do any serious blunders it will come down to three decisive battles: Can Germany over...

Re: Balance Issues in 1942.2

Hi Krieghund, thanks for your immediate reply. It is good to hear that the online-community doesn't see an urgent need for balancing units. So we will give both scenarios a try (with and without the Non-Aggression Pact). After a closer look to the board and the setup of A&A 1942 SE I can already fig...

Re: Balance Issues in 1942.2

Hi Krieghund, hi Imperious Leader, an old gaming buddy of mine, with whom I used to play A&A Classic in the late 1990s, now passes by every two months for a game. Due to his long pause we started with A&A 1941 and find it quite balanced – of course we include the setup changes and the Soviet-Japanes...

Re: My Impressions

Well, if you would like to play an A&A version with more Victory Cities, you have to go for the Anniversary Edition. I know it is hard to get these days, but it has got 5 more Victory Cities (Ottawa, Warsaw, Stalingrad, Hong Kong and Manila) and is well balanced and features Italy and National Advan...

Re: What is sad to see

The freedom to discuss things and to make them better - this is, what democracy is all about. If someone has the power to say what is right and what is wrong - that is what a dictatorship is all about. Democracy and its never ending discussions can get very frustrating, but a dictatorship is only fu...

Re: Oil Needed for Actions

Hello timeover51, funny, I did my 15 months of mandatory army service in the Bundeswehr (federal army of Western Germany) at the end of the 1980s, just a year before communism collapsed and my country was reunified. And I served most of the time in a supply unit too. Concerning your idea of oil supp...
