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!!!
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!
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...
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...
Now the Fortress America parts would be...
