I notice that the new game War of the Ring is a best seller and it retails for $90. It just happens to have lots of nice plastic minis. People will pay for a quality game that has replay value.

$100 for a game with lots of nice plastic minis is a good price target.
Including 3 tiers of rule complexity gives customers three games for the price of one.

GHQ makes metal mini tanks that are the perfect size for axis and allies. perhaps arrangements could be made with them to produce the expansion packs.

Lets not forget that in addition to GHQ, that a cheaper alternative with slightly lessor quality is available from CinC... which is currently running a sale for the 20th Anniversary of Axis & Allies.

"Axis & Allies Tank Set" = Price: $ 30.00 plus shipping. You get

Russia: ten (10) T34/76A. The first T-34 medium tank that surprised the germans. Very effective sloped armour, 76mm gun and robust suspension that has influenced tank design to the present day (R-12).

Thoes426 – I’m glade you brought up card stock… Rest assured the card stock will just fine.

Elbowmaster – decals is a nice touch - Agreed
Honey point the toe to Kazahkstan - man you’re too much (lol)

Lobo – the GHQ stuff is wonderful. That would be impossible to do. What might be interesting is if GHQ provided all the pieces of the game. Maybe we’re talking a volume discount here. I think the game just went to $250.

AxisNDallas - Thanks for the C in C link.

Larry, come talk to me if your interested in making large maps! ;) Or elbowmaster....or both of us! hehe!

I've come across a couple options initiated by a conversation with Imperious Leader. These options make making large maps at reasonable costs a bit more of a reality for an advanced A&A game. I"m thinking this game NEEDS a larger map.

Regarding play pieces, I'd be willing to pay a bit extra to be sure I got enough!

And as for price, well for anyone that's an A&A addict like most of us posting in this forum, well we'd most likely be willing to pay a decent sum of money as long as we could be certain there was everything needed to play the next installment of larry harris's A&A! woot!

Ill throw in my 2 cents. I dont think 100 bucks would be bad at all. I also think plastic playing pieces would be nice. Map must be significantly larger than normal a and a boards. The pieces should also be a little more detailed than the standard plastic miniatures. Oh yeah, the board should also be thick and sturdy.
