Some thoughts on a new Pacific:

"China" as a single power seems unwieldy; it was a country split into factions, which is partly why it was so ineffective in war. I prefer a US controlled KMT, and a Soviet backed CCP which are as hostile to each other as to the Japanese...

ANZACS as a power?
This hardly seems historical, as these countries were under UK control until spring '42 and then under the command of MacArthur's SWPC. (In standard A&A they should be under US control).

Netherlands as a power? They certainly had more territory and income from Asia than France.

Oil - the Japanese strategy was based largely on the determination to grab raw materials that were being denied to them by Allied blockade, hence the grab for the East Indies and Burma. Some kind of supply rules for Japan seems appropriate, even if the Allies were never likely to go short.

I remain unconvinced by the link-up idea, why not just have a bigger board with the whole world on it?

On neutral forces, is there really a need to have neutral pieces as such? Divide the neutrals into spheres of influence, so that when each is attacked the opposite alliance player into whose sphere it falls immediately gets control, and places it's own pieces on the board to represent the neutral's forces. The country is then treated as part of that player's territory for the rest of the game.

Finally, I am colour-blind. Please have fewer browns/reds/tans/beiges/yellows as these are hard to tell apart for me. Japan would be lovely in purest white.

Long time since I asked Larry questions. Way back when Don's forum was still around.

Where can I petition to have the Italians have theri own fleet sculpts, and to give the British the KGV battleship sculpt?

And why start in the middle of the conquest of France? Why not just go back 1 more turn and start in 1939?

Is ANZAC controlled by UK like China is controlled by US?

Since ANZAC is in there, was Canada considered at one point as well?

Will Japan outnumber everybody in fighter 2 to 1 when the games are combined?

Spheres of Influence table: Allies - Axis

Also, how are neutral USA and Russia treated. Can they buy or move while not at war?

Is there a convoy system? Is it like the previous games?

Larry-
Thanks for these two new games! I look forward to playing them when they come out. From what i've read so far you have truely been " noting our comments" and have figured out how to put all the "notes" together to make two great games (AAE&AAP) even better and to be able to combined them even! DUDE!!!
If you make them, I'll buy them!
take care,

Yea how do you sway them to either axis or allies?

I hope spain and Turkey are worth the most. Germany needs more partners in crime!
We really need an Axis and Allies World War one game so i can play that on August 1st, 2014.

I got you talking now, why waste a good spy??? :wink:

WE wouldn't need spies if the chimps at WOTC would give us some pics and articles weeks ahead of time like they did back in the the day- like Revised- remember??? :)

Times are tough, especially here in Michigan, so people "gotta do what they gotta do" to get by you know. I consider this payment for that AA50 Reprint coming. So your books are clear with me Larry. :wink:

Answers for the questions were great. Thanks for being so open about these new games. Couple more for the road... :?:

Any convoy route stuff???

Any CAP rules (I hope not)???

If ANZAC gets there own Income, why not Canada?

What countries will have their own sculpts? (Sorry if you answered this already)

P.S.
Sweden's space on the board should just be for placing the cheese- that's all. :)

The first strategy for this game will be how to invade and take over Sweden on turn 1.

1) Ignore France and build all transports and men.

2) attack Sweden will all forces on G1, then launch a killer attack on G2

3) promptly surrender as the Axis by turn 4 because you ignored France and Russia.
