Link up A&A Pacific 1940 and Europe 1940, and you've got Axis & Allies Global 1940.

My main point was that the game is great as it sits now. No need for anymore changes. The balance is there and let's get a new print and copy of the set up ;)

Pretty sure they just posted the effects and arguments pro/con the aa gun. Do you even read other posts?

It serves no purpose, why is it there?

Hey, guys!

After a very long time, I tackle again the hard task of seeing where the rules are now. I thought Alpha+3, 11/17, was the last issue, but I now see things have progressed!

But I haven't... It took my group 4 months to complete the last game we started (20 turns... Allied victory, by far the best game we've ever had at this game, for a vast series of reason). However, I've tried to get a hold on this topic, but it's way bigger than me, so I have to ask for your help:

Where are we now? Do we have any official modifications to the rules listed at the beginning of the Alpha+3 thread? Is Krieghund impossibility to modify the post only a technical problem or is it that Larry hasn't endorsed the chenges proposed here?

What are the rules now?

Sorry to jump in here and ask all these questions, but after I rapidly checked several times for any changings, now I really have to figure out what has been going on during the last month at least.

Thank you for your patience! (particularly yours, Krieg!)

Add 1 UK infantry and 1 AA gun to Scotland.
Change 1 French tank and 1 French artillery in France to equivalent UK units.

Change the Soviet "Spread of Communism" NO to "3 IPCs for each original German, Italian, or pro-Axis neutral territory that the Soviet Union controls."
SirEdward, this is the most currant proposed changes to Alpha+3 (from bottom of pg#80). They aren't official at this point, waiting on final word from Larry. Could be a minor tweak, but for now this is what we got. I believe the part in red is a most recent tweak that may be a bit questionable. I've used it, along with many others and the response has been positive. It seems to play out very nice to this point, especially the new naval set around the UK.

I have reviewed the above changes with Larry, and they are now official as written. We've also added 1 AA gun to India, bringing the total there to 3.

Thanks Larry and Krieghund.

This Sea Lion thread has been a pleasure participating in. Superb debating, thanks to all that had imput into this.

I am looking forward to playing a F2F game this weekend.

The added AA in India is a welcome suprise.

The money for the Second Edition is burning a hole in my pocket.
