Where did everyone get their A&A:R game?  Intrenet, local Game store?  Or did you get it at all?  (and just play via the intrenet maps etc.)

I ordered my Pacific, Revised and D-Day sets thru my Local Comic/Game shop. I picked up a Europe set that had been on the shelf awhile on a recent excursion for a ccg tourney. Not the cheapest way put the shop does provide a place to play when we want it, a way to meet players, is a local business and other intangibles that have values you can't put dollar signs on. Well, that are worth the 10 or 15% you save after what are starting to become huge shipping costs. Rock bottom prices are not always the best determiner of value in my opinion.

I bought my AAR at Toys R Us.  It cost around $40 (about a year ago).

I don't think I could afford all of the different A&A games... I hear A&A Revised is the best tho... and now that I know I have a place to play people, I might go buy it.

Bought AAR from Tory-R-Us around Christmas, after joining this site in November.  My Classic board I bought when I was in college, no longer remember where.

I downloaded a Map program that I use for 2nd Edition but I am very curious to play Revised.  Is there a map tool for it as well that I could download along with a rulebook so I could start playing Revised online?  I don't want to spend the money on the actual board if I'm never gonna play face to face.  My friends say my dice rolls are too lucky, even tho I always bring more than enough pieces into battle to win... oh well.

You can download Abattlemap at

http://www.flames-of-europe.de/modules.php?name=Downloads&d_op=viewdownload&cid=2

When you first launch the program it will display the original, select New from the pull down menu and select Axis & Allies Revised it will switch you to the revised game (it also contains the maps for AA: Europe & AA: Pacific plus a bunch of others.

Larry Harris Tournament Rules (LHTR) can be downloaded at

http://daak.de/regeln/eng/lhtr.pdf

It requires the Adobe Acrobat PDF Reader.

Revised is a great improvement over the original.  If you're use to playing classic be aware there are a lot of rule changes (things you couldn't do in classic but can in revised and vise-versa) plus new units and technology.  I found that I had to throw everything I knew from classic out the window and start from scratch.  If you're interested, the guy who was in charge of redisgning the game wrote a series of articles explaining some of the changes and the reasons behind them.  You can find them at (they're at the bottom of the page):

Toys-R-Us for me too.

IMHO, you lose alot while playing online.

I admit online play is still fun. But it is just not the same feeling as a FTF game. One can take hours to return a PBEM turn. One has to make more "split-second" decisions FTF.

Additionally, tournaments are really fun and you get to meet alot of nice people.

do they still hold tournaments?  a thread I was looking at had a tournament in Sterling, VA (about 1.5 hrs from where I live) but that was some time ago and I hadn't joined this site yet.  I love FTF games but no one ever wants to play me.

im thinkin about lookin around for the actual board game tho, just so i have it.
