This is the new base game like Revised was. This game replaces Revised which is now out of print.pellulo wrote:

I like the game play of 1942. It uses the AA50 rules and adds the cruiser which Revised did not have.pellulo wrote:One final question which is considered better, the original, revised, or, 1942 game(for game play, not bigger board/better plastic units, etc.), Thanks, Pellulo

I also added blockhouses, Marines, convoy routes and Kamikaze makers from AAP40. This is a great game and these additions make it even better. I only wish that these things were official and included in AA42.
I use house rules for Mech Inf (any Inf starting w/tank can ride one for one), airborne (Inf starting w/bomber can ride - no bombing & subject to AA), directed Arty (designate before battle - no Inf bonus, hit 1-2 but select target on 1), armed transports (transport alone defends at 1 first round only), and combined arms bonus (aircraft attacking w/tanks attack at 4).
I've been thinking of adding "Atlantic Wall" for France as part of "Fortress Europe". The block house would cost 15 IPCs, could be taken as a loss in battle, and would fire against all amphibious attacking units like an AA gun does for A/C, but hitting on a 1 or 2. It would only get to do this once during an amphibious invasion, but would happen before the attacker's dice rolls and eliminations wouldn't be able to attack - like ground attack AA guns.
