Map dim. 28x46
A roll up map with a felt like backing.
Africa, Canada, China and Russia will have additional territories
There will be new territories presented so that movement (direction) options are increased.
Considering cutting the map some ware in the Pacific Ocean and no longer cutting the US in half.
Impassable terrains to remain and possibly some more added. For example winter movement rules (soviet winter modifier) for Europe and parts of Asia. I’m not sure about this but exploring the possibility.
do you envision different set ups and "time" factor games? similar to eagle, basic, intermediate, advanced play options???

Elbow – different set ups and time… perhaps.
Yeah, maybe it should look like that famous German gasmask canister.
Krieg – again you sway me! It was just a wild thought I had.
Actually it was me reacting to a few comments I heard over the years. I did not agree with them then and I still don’t. I just wanted to throw it out there and see who saluted it.
It got the “finger” instead.
The basic concept of dividing the USA will remain.

A round canister is a strange packageing idea. Id like it look like a military footlocker, except the top would be made stronger so it can double as a dice roller box. It would be padded so sounds of rolling dice would be quiet in home games (wakes up babies). Make sure you have a nice big picture on the back of the box with a awesome picture of the pieces set up and people sitting around the game dressed in ww2 uniforms in a war room with sticks pointing at their latest exploits. That would be a hoot.
I have a 28 by 48 map. It certainly could be 30 x50. This is really the best size I’ve found (subjective opinion ) Bigger is not much better and actually can become a problem.
As for packaging, this is just thinking out load and believe me… it’s WAY to early to be discussing this. But map size … it’s not too early.
my vote is for a 5 mil laminate board...10 mil would be out of the question, but 5 should work, it would be durable and able to withstand many hours of gaming...thats one thing i dont like about the standard paper boards, especially the latest ones made by avalon hill, easy to tear, thin new milenium paper by product...
how about that 1939 board on the back!!! two boards in one, now thats ADVANCED
and get this, selling in tubes is a great idea...just think, youd find advanced axis & allies next to the doodle art
I LOVE IT !!!
