Since I've cut my A&A teeth back in '84 with 1st edition, it holds a certain sentimental value to me.  Every other version I've purchased since, I've felt that they have "gone cheap" on the included materials.  Anything cardboard is no longer thicker than a cereal box.  And the graphics on the new stuff?!  They tried too hard in my opinion.

Since my group plays AA50 now (or at least we did until we purchased AAE40 & AAP40), I created a set of Setup Cards that capture that 1st edition feel.  I cut them out (10.5" x 3.75") and mount them on foam board.  Works very well.


(This preview .png kinda cuts off the borders of the card...looks better in .pdf format.)

I'm now ready to share this with the A&A.org community.  I hope you guys like them.

I've also reverse-engineered the Battle Board for those new players among us.

Enjoy!

Nice, but I prefer the newer setup charts. I prefer looking at a list of unis in each territory than a graph where I have to look to the left to see which unit type I need and I could get confused on

The Set-up cards are very cool.  They have that AAA 2nd Ed "vintage" look.

Where could I find free downloads of the setup information, game board, battle board, tokens, and other player aids and charts for the Axis & Allies Anniversary Edition?

How could I download a full copy of the Anniversary Edition map? I've thought I've found a way, but then it always will only print a corner of the map.

@Viracocha: thanks!  Glad you like 'em.

@axis_roll: Nope, sorry.  I only made the cards for the scenario that we tend to play.  ('Course now I need to wait for the Global 1940 startup to be finalized...and I'll do those next)
