Hopefully a spin off of the Axis & Allies 1914 game is in the works. I vote for a Mid-East version with Lawerence in it, an sea version of the Battle of Jutland, Eastern Front, Southern Front, or, even a The War of the Worlds version.

One last note:For game purposes, this world view of battle is too generic, to give any special abilities to any player for combat. For real time the Germans were masters of defense, it could give them an additional one for defense, much less for the first two turns an additional point for attack(at the same time giving an point for defense for France, for the first two turns).

For a specific battle like the Battle for Verdun, theses factors could be worked into the game.

Until then I close this thread of RoundRobin, thanks, Pellulo

Fin, keep safe in theses trying times!!!

I notice on AMC they have a new The War of the Worlds T.V. Show. It is not like the eighties tv 📺 show,

This one appears to take place, more with the Well’s book, sometime in the late nineteen century or early twentieth century. I have not seen it, maybe more with the original Tri-pods & Martians from the book.

It is up to show number three, interesting tie in to the 1917 game, enjoy, Pellulo

P.S. Who knows, Maybe Thunder-Child might make a guest appearance! 🚢 👽

Well we are in a new year, January 7, 2021 is right around the corner. Hopefully we avoid another 6.4 quake for that date and for this new year( it was a seven in 1918, along with a Tsunami hitting Mayagüez).

If so will break out parts from my old “Buck Rogers in the 25th. Century” & “Fortress America I & II” games. Along with the fabulous minis from the 1980s Kenner’s Vrocs and Triaxs military sets.

Once done will begin to set up to play an unofficial “Axis and Allies War of the Worlds” game. No 🧟‍♀️ Zombies allowed in the game play!

Getting the parts, setting up the board, deciding on the rules for the units and upgraded units will take longer, than playing a actual game.

The game I will start is in a linear form, going up in time, using first the Axis & Allies 19...

...14 game. Taking an average of both world wars of ten years divided by two giving me five years. The game will be played at six months at a turn, giving me ten turns for the game.

Going by the BBC special on The War of the Worlds happening during about the first year of W.W.I, the units from Kenner die casts & Fortress America and Buck Rodger games, give the Martians that futuristic look to them.

For the first round Entent and Central Powers due to the surprise Martian invasion, function -1 for attack and defense(no less than one). This will not apply to naval units, as the Martians even in coastal waters, find themselves over their heads, facing surface ships, much less submarines. So on a map, thin dotted lines, to facilitate coastal waters. Thus adding more spaces for movement for sea battles...

Unless your going to make your own 2-D cardboard cut outs of the more sophisticated Martian weapons/units. Then the plastic units and Kenner’s die cast can fit the bill...

The Kenner parts are self propelled missile launchers, same for cannon, tank, hover copter, and, Jets(fighter and fighter bombers). While the Buck Rodgers parts are transports, and, those nifty biological creatures armed with weapons(skipping the space version of fighters and bombers, who would they fight in space, in the year 1917?).

Now the Fortress America parts would be...
