With all the interest in WWI style A&A games, I am happy to say that the Guild of Blades has been working on the 3rd edition of its WWI variant, The War to End All Wars.
The War to End All Wars was originally released in 1998 and has been the Guild's best selling A&A variant over the years. We've collected a great deal of feedback since that time and have redesigned the game. The War to End All Wars 3rd edition will be releasing in March 06,
The new 3rd edition has an all newly designed map thats 50% larger than the previous edition. You can see a copy of the new game map in the files section of our Empires of History Yahoo Discussion Group.http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/empires-of-history/
The 3rd edition is also moving away from the plastic tokens the previous edition used and will now come with more than 1,100 oversized full color cardboard chit counters.
Anyway, we'll be updating our WWI web pages soon with information on the forthcoming 3rd edition, and making release announcements to our Empires of History Discussion list and elsewhere.
If anyone here had the previous editions, I will be happy to go over what changes have been made to the rules. I can tell you the two biggest changes are how resources are tracked, the addition of colonial cities, dramatic changes in the U-boat rules and the addition of rivers and mountains.
Oh, the 3rd edition will stay at the 2nd edition price of $34.95.
