Latest game on Sunday May 7th 2017: Went a solid 3 hours with no checkmate as of yet. Game had to be postponed to be completed due to wives/girlfriends. Germany has all of Africa, but the UK has been a thorn on the coast. Pacific is thinned out and East Russia is not under Japanese control. Not sure...

Re: Balance Issues 1942 2nd Ed. Re-Visited

Allies had some hot dice, Axis was about mean average but cold in a couple critical battles. Allies focused on Atlantic only. Previous 6 games of 42.2 with various Allies' bids have been 5 for the Axis and 1 for the Allies. Definitely makes a difference. Game 2 of 42.2 revised. Axis slaughtered All...

Game 2 of 42.2 revised. Axis slaughtered Allies in a KGF just under 2 hours. Allies rolled cold and didn't have a prayer.

Great site for WWII music

We have listened to this site just about every time we play A&A. Also a good song list to work against for downloading.

Re: Possible counters to a broken(...?) strategy?

Hi I am new to the boards. We ran into this situation in our game yesterday, and when Japan does the unprovoked (successful) invasion of the US (Aleutian Islands & Hawaii) the Allies have a small chance of victory playing against Japan with an experienced player. My buddy and I have only been playin...
