Discussed with IL and Larry so far:

per their conversation:

1940.... battle of Britain, Sealion, alternative axis movements. yes

I hope you have historical victory conditions this time and that these games can be linked into one huge game ( with optional mid section of map) They can

I hope the map is large enough so people don't have to draw their own. It is

I hope the divebomber is a 3-2 unit costing 8 and you have new pieces for the factory and AA gun 3/3- 11, Combined arms

I hope you include a score sheet on the back of the rules so players can copy it and write down officially the IPC Score sheet?

I hope the dice have symbols on them They don't

I hope you change out some of the artillery sculpts Not happening

I hope that japan gets a new battleship It won't

I hope you include escort carriers (jeep carriers) Nope

I hope you have mechanized infantry and these are no longer considered "technology" Done

I hope the A-bomb can be developed in the game I don't think so

I hope that neutrals have military forces and be swayed to align with one side or the other They do

I hope that Japan and Russia can not be forced into war for either of them to win "forced"?

I hope that you include a deck of cards? No cards

Larry:

Is the movement sequence all axis all allies?

Can you confirm the french pieces? Or do they use the 'neutral armies units'

Do you collect income towards start of turn or end like usual?

Does the game have any new tech pieces (like super subs and jets?)

Will Italy have any new pieces? (like a new cruiser)

What is the Mechanized infantry unit values 2-2-2 cost 4?

Can you invade Sweden?

What is the size of the map?

Are ANZACS in this game?

What color are the neutrals? any change in colors of pieces?

Does france get any national tokens?

( note: this post is not a complaint...so don't bother)

Hi IL,
The movement sequence is the same as usually found in Axis & Allies games… an axis or allied power followed by one of the players from the opposing side (in other words alternating turns). Not all Axis and all Allies as you seem to be suggesting. I like the system you are referring to but frankly this would have really been too radical a change to the more or less established game system.

There will be a dedicated French infantry unit. The rest of the French units will be made up of various existing unit types. All French units will be a different color – probably some kind of blue-ish color.

You collect income at the beginning of your turn… again, this is simply an established A&A system. It works and heck… I like it that way.

The Italians will pretty much be the same as found in Anniversary.

Mechanized infantry (1/2/2 – cost 4) will be represented with half-tracks. Allies M-3’s and Axis powers will use the SdKfz 251. Oh, and Russia has its own half track as well (if I remember correctly). They can blitz with tanks.

You can invade Sweden or any neutral country frankly. There will be three types of neutrals… True neutrals, Pro-Axis and Pro-Allies. Their standing armies will be listed on the map and appear should they be attacked. Invade Sweden, a true neutral, and perhaps all the other True neutrals become pro-something else. Get my drift?

The board(s) will be the biggest maps ever produced. Two words come to mind… “huge” and “amazing”. When combining the two games… because you can, five words come to mind… “huge, huge” and "Amazing, amazing... amazing"…

Yes there will be an ANZAC power – It will/can be, controlled by a dedicated player.

There are no specific neutral pieces. Neutral territories will be represented on the map in one of 3 possible colors. The specific color depends on their neutrality status.

France gets its national tokens… it gets its colonies that are all over Africa in AAE and a couple of places in the AAP game (French Indo-China and New Hebrides) It has its own dedicated colored units. If captured by the initial German blitzkrieg its surviving units are controlled by one of the allied players – probably the British player. If France is liberated it recovers its liberated factories and goes back to war against the axis as any major power would.

The biggest new pieces, in terms of number and game play are what I call Tac-bombers.
At sea they are considered torpedo and/or dive bombers and on land they are strictly dive bombers. A couple of examples of the different aircraft represented… the Stuka (of course), the Japanese Val, the American Avenger, the British Mosquito, and … the Russian IL2. They are expensive (11) but when combined with armor… They attack at 4!, otherwise it has a 3/3 with a range of 4. It’s blitz time. Bye, bye France. At sea, or during sea battles, it selects its target for the first round of battle.

By the way… AAE40 begins shortly after Dunkirk. Germany, on its first turn will probably be launching the Battle of France. Belgium, Holland, Denmark and Norway have just been successfully invaded and are occupied. AAP40 will also begin at around that same period (19 months before Pear Harbor). The Japanese can attack any time, but are they really ready? As the controlling Japanese player you decide when and how.

Australian and New Zealand troops. These were used in Italy and represent the best colonial units available to the British.
