Re: Now that we have colored AAA guns, what can we do w/AA g

The older Table Tactics supplement plastic parts has a nice double rocket mold that we use as the V rocket unit in the game we play.

Re: Official Rules Clarifications

Thanks for the reminder.

Just out of practice with this rule set so I need to probably limit my "help". Tough habit to break though.

Re: Official Rules Clarifications

It's been awhile since we have played so I was hesitant to respond.

Just seems a bit off though. The ability to ignore the subs when coming into a seazone for an amphib isn't reciprocated in this situation of the response.

Re: Official Rules Clarifications

No.

The subs are a separate battle that the planes can only react to if the attacker chooses to create it.

The planes only would be reacting to the amphib.

Re: Victory Territories

thanks Yope. The labels on the vc's just show why they were important, so for instance, Malta was important because it was a key Allied island. All of the vc's are targets and count for both Axis and Allied totals. When I listed the four cities together (Oslo, Stockholm, Helsinki, Glasgow) I was ju...

On the other hand, there are no "can opener" situations to exploit (which personally doesn't bother me) an...
