Set up- Germany may reposition ground forces to the Western Front. Must leave at least one piece on each territory in the East.
Fall of Paris- For each French piece used to defend Paris, one French piece outside of European France becomes Free French and is controlled by the UK player until Paris is liberated. French controlled territories values are added to the UK total starting on the next UK turn. French pieces in metro France and pieces not covered by this rule become Vichy and are controlled by the Germans.
Vichy pieces may not move out of Vichy territories and German pieces may not enter Vichy territories unless to attack them. Vichy income goes to the Germans as long as they remain neutral. Vichy units defend against Allied attacks normally for one round of combat, then they defect to the Allied side which occupies them.
So, I canÂ’t see the images in the original post. All I see are Photobucket meter images. Apparently the download limit or bandwidth limit or something has been exceeded? Or some other problem? Anyone have an idea what the problem is?
IÂ’m curious as to what the Larry Harris quote is in one of the images. Can someone share the quote?
Photobucket screwed us all by starting to charge about $40 a month to post pictures on 3rd party sites - a service that has been free for years. It’s a shame but I’m not paying for that.
Larry’s quote says something like “I must point out that I encourage the use and implementation of house rules”
Add “1_PU” to USA and UK Purchase Window to keep track of PU levels when upgrading Infantry to Marine/Commando with a Allied Factory. Add “Charles de Gaulle Neutrals Modified” as an option.
It is a rule that we used back in the 90’s - inspired by Gamers Paradise by Phillip Schwartzer.
If we include it, it will be as a part of the Optional Rules in the Axis & Allies Global 1940 House Rules Expansion.
In order to be able to use the Sub Commander rule in conjunction with the Axis & Allies Global 1940 House Rules Expansion a few minor adjustments would be needed concerning Naval Combat that involves Destroyers, Escorts, Transports, Submarines and U-Boats.
@pacifiersboard Italy is only restricted on who it can attack on the turn it declares war. (and Paris is not already in Axis hands)
The restriction is only that it can’t attack territories that have units on that first turn.
Gonna now move 1 German sub from Baltic to sz with 2 German Subs in Atlantic to 3 on setup. Based on time frame if it’s early 42 this gives Germany some decent battle of the Atlantic action.
Also since a plane can scramble with a destroyer present on subs only attacking.
Maybe those 3 subs will just hit convoys and split up and force allies to come and get.
Gives Germany maybe a sub fodder or 2 and plane attacks later. Then maybe not
@franklin_cain yea it’d make sense for it to be Dutch and German controlled. Treat it the same as the Dutch Territories in the Pacific and the Chinese ones controlled by Japan.
You could house rule it. I guess that way Italy could get it if they conquered it after Germany lost it. I’ve never seen Germany build a major there or even a minor : )
Those are the rules though : ) So yea, no erratta
I suppose Poland, Norway and Denmark should be treated as Neutrals though. Vyborg, Baltic States and Bessarabia for USSR too. Maybe Poland Pro-Allies ? Vyborg Pro-Axis ? Hmm … I’d say no to Vyborg.
This guide contains a number of ideas for players to tweak their game in order to make it more fun and more replayable.
A series of successful unit value changes as well as a new set of major overhauls for the existing units.
A series of possible new units to add to the game.
And, for the most dedicated players, a series of 15 scenarios and variants, ranging from game mechanic changes to new starting conditions to geopolitical shifts that depict a series of interesting “what if” scenarios. From simple additions to complex ones, you’ll be guaranteed to find something that tickles your fancy for the next time you decide to square off with your friends in an epic battle for world domination !
Hi @franklin_cain looks as if you’re talking Global 40 game. My observation is that most people don’t like the oob Neutral rules, although I see why they did it that way. Since you’re in House rules, I suggest checking out
After many attempts to launch some custom projects, I have finally solidified my efforts on this, the Axis and Allies World Scenario.
To put bluntly, this is a Game of Thrones, free for all scenario in which any alliances, in any wars, may be fought. Multiple new rules, including resources, trade deals, technology (nuclear weapons??) and much more exist.
This is something that I will be pursuing with full interest, and will be posting updates, pictures, and game rules as frequently as I can. If you’re interested, stay tuned, if you have any suggestions/ideas, please let me know!
Powers on European side: United States, South America, Britain, Italy, France, Germany, Soviet Russia, Eastern Europe
(pieces used for new powers come from the Classic addition)
