I'll see what I can do. But really, have you ever tried to tell an art director what you want? That works to a certain point. They seem to think they are in charge of the art direction.

Oh, by the way Adlertag…
You say “
I don’t think they would appreciate a silly war game being dedicated to them, since they hated the war.”
My experience has been that the veterans of this war DO appreciate the recognition and interest demonstrated by the playing of this silly war game. At least their sacrifices and efforts are not forgotten. As we play this silly war game we re-visit the battlefields and think about what took place there. I know too many people that need to be retold this story least they forget.

Very well stated and aggreed-

Just tell the "art" guy that a map that looks like planet earth would be a good start. I think he was up on the JPL site looking at pictures and info of Titan with its black oceans of methane way too long.
We really need an Axis and Allies World War one game so i can play that on August 1st, 2014.

The AH revised game is not good enogh to be dedicated to my worst enemy.



I have looked all over MB box, and rule book, but I was not able to find the name of the artist.

Anyway, mr. x, I love your art.

My next A&A advanced game will perhaps be dedicated to the man himselves, mr. Harris. He just have to make it first.
this same question was asked at the AH site...how nice it was that i found it for you...
Just got word from Mike Gray--the VP of R&D at Milton Bradley, and the guy who wrote the 2nd edition A&A rulebook back in the day--that Mangiat is the name of the artist who did the 2nd edition map. Thanks for bringing this up, DP.

Mike

larry harris, have you considered eliminating these big giants and create a line thats avail on-line only??? youve stated that your games are not by design by committee, but it seems youve contradicted yourself when youve have to accept the desicions of art directors from big companies...perhaps here is your chance to really be in control of your product...id go for it if i had the name and means like you probably have...

its a whole new marketing world here on the internet...big companies??? who needs em...do you??
