Re: Strategic Movements Mechanic

Hi Larry end fellow gamers, This idea sounds like fun. I think our group will give it a try. That being said, we are all going "ape" over A&A14 just as it is. We love it! We are having a blast. The game feels so entirely different from the WWII versions. At the risk of being labeled a "fan boy", I j...

Re: Balance Issues?

Whoot!!!

We will definitely give this a try.

Thanks for the update. I really love the '41 edition. It is so tight and we can play in 1-2 hours. The balance seems to be getting much better with these additions.

Thanks for all your efforts guys. Great job!

Re: Designer Notes.

Hi Larry, Just a quick note to say thank you for this game. It is perfect to introduce my kids to the game and WWII and it is great for us older gamers that just cannot invest the 10 hours to play a global game anymore. I love it. I did go to Historical Board Gaming and get Japanese, American, and B...

Re: Balance Issues?

We have played it a few times with the extra US destroyer and 2 Russian troops and every time, the Russians get squeezed by turn 3 and are done. We tried it with the destroyer and 3 Russian troops and that seems to be the right balance. The allies finally broke their 7 game losing streak and squeake...

Re: Balance Issues?

I have only managed one game with the suggested balance fix, but we were not able to finish. That being said, there appeared to be a much better balance to the game but still leaning toward an Axis victory. I think it would help to put another allied infantry in China. But, I will try to play it aga...
