Yes, it’s any 2 Soviet cities. Cities are only territories in the shape of a circle (or semi-circle on coastlines). We tried to remove all of the other city names from the V-2 map and replace them with regional names.
Murmansk does not have a circular territory and therefore is not considered a city territory. It exists in the territory of Kola. The only reference I’ve seen for those types of cities like Vladivostock and Murmansk is Red Cities in the Elite of the Soviet Union expansion set. I think they were probably put there for aesthetics.

Conflict and Chaos: Vietnam 1965 is a historical strategic board game designed by James J Campbell and published by I Will Never Grow Up Games.
On 2 March, 1965, following an attack on a US Marine barracks at Pleiku, Operations Flaming Dart, Rolling Thunder and Arc Light commenced. This intense bombing campaign, which ultimately lasted three years, was intended to force North Vietnam to cease its support for the National Front for the Liberation of South Vietnam.

@crsluggo said in Battle of France 1940 (Revised) - Available to order, Print on Demand & Digital Files (PDF):
I like the pieces! Looking forward to you bringing these to market. Thank you again for reprinting this neat little title.
Some of the 3D printed pieces are available individually as we work on getting the rest to print well on the 3D printers.
StuGIII, Panzer III, Sdkfz 251D halftrack, Bren Carrier and Crusader tanks;
I would love to go the route of injection molded for high quantities, but the upfront costs are too high for such a small business right now.
Sorry to reply to such an old topic. I just came across this game the other day for the first time, and wondered if it popped up on the forums anywhere. This is the lone hit haha.
Has anyone played this? I’m very intrigued by it. It looks like the gaming mechanics work really similarly to the Battle Cry Civil War game, which I have and enjoy playing too. I love playing Battle Cry when we want to get a game fix in. Individual battles only take about 45 minutes I think, but you can play whole campaigns if you still want a longer fix too.
Would love to hear if anyone has anything to say about this, and whether it’s worth the buy. I see there’s at least expansions for a French army and one for tanks. Maybe others?
How many of ya’ll play ‘Fortress America?’ I play this game which was released with Axis and Allies in the game master series and is quite popular. It was printed extensively in the 1980’s and reprinted in 2012. If any of you want to see the added section under other games upvote and/or comment, thanks.
Lol. This was way bigger than just the 6th army! Thing is, if he was paying attention, he could have prevented me from cutting him off. All he needed to do was reinforce just one of the spaces I had to attack, and that would have done it.
Regardless, he wasn’t winning anyway.
@DoManMacgee said in Europe Divided:
@Slip-Capone Haven’t played it myself but it looks like it’s worth checking out at least.
Yeah I really like the concept. Thought it would be getting more love considering Twilight Struggle was no.1 on BGG for years.
*Formula De’, along with 20 open wheel and 36 Gt cars. Painted of course.
*Star Trek Starship combat sim.
*Air Force with Dauntless expansion from Avalon Hill. Now using 700 scale miniatures.
*Firefly and Battletech
@Imperious-Leader said in Amerika V2?:
It would be the SAME game. Thats the problem. I got all seasons of MITHC and love the scenes of the Germans plotting Japans demise. I hate the parts with the women partisan and the running around/lovey- dovey.
This might interest you, IL.
Historical Board Gaming (HBG) is now taking preorders on their Amerika pieces for the German player, now in Black (they were originally in grey).
One thing to point out, these Pre-Orders on Black Amerika German Sets include not only the German Set pieces from base game pieces but also the German Set pieces from the Amerika Expansion Set “Bring in the Heavies”. Well worth it if you already have Amerika and the “Bring in the Heavies” expansion and you just want the new pieces, worth it if you already have Amerika and you just want the new pieces, and also worth-while if you just want to equip your late-war Germans in a game of Axis & Allies or Global War '36 or '39 with some awesome new tanks, mechs, self-propelled guns, jet fighters, and jet bombers.
For the visually-inclined, a picture of some of the pieces is available here:
For those that want to know what all you get, here is a listing of what you are pre-ordering for when you put down your $45 ($40 for the pre-order, $5 shipping in the US):
Unit / (grey German Pieces) / (black German Pre-Order Pieces)

HBG recently announced a re-print of their game Amerika. The difference between the first print and the newly-announced second print will be the color of the pieces. To quote HBG: “… new Amerika Game with [T]an Allies, Black Germans, and Yellow-Gold Japanese” (Source)
What I elided out of that quote is that if you have a copy of Amerika and just want the new pieces, HBG will accommodate you, but only for a short while. The full quote goes: “Pre-Orders on Tan Amerika Allies Sets will be available for 4 weeks only (Ends July 16), after that they will only be in the new Amerika Game with [T]an Allies, Black Germans, and Yellow-Gold Japanese.”
So, making the Allies Set in in Tan allows one to get HBG Centurion tanks and Meteor Jet fighters in British Tan. But only for the next 2 to 3 weeks. (Recently, HBG announced that their French Set would be available for pre-orders in a “light blue” or “Free French” color until the 5th of June. Only pre-orders were cancelled before then, and if you were too slow, you missed out.) So, if this sounds like something you would like to have, you will want to move sooner rather than later.
One thing to point out, these Pre-Orders on Tan Amerika Allies Sets include not only the Allies Set pieces from base game pieces but also the Allies Set pieces from the Amerika Expansion Set “Bring in the Heavies”. Well worth it if you already have Amerika and the “Bring in the Heavies” expansion and you just want the new pieces, worth it if you already have Amerika and you just want the new pieces, and also worth-while if you just want to equip your late-war British in a game of Axis & Allies or Global War '36 or '39 with some awesome new tanks, mechs, self-propelled guns, jet fighters, and jet bombers.

P.S. Edit to correct spelling.
This is a game that i redid the map, and we played it.
2.0 ideas at this point include some new rules ideas and subs ate now attacking at 5 (D12)
More videos coming and content
Had a friend spark an idea for hex based Stratego. On top of that, I decided we should have terrain modifiers and historical maps. I think there are lots of potential with making an old game a bit more fun while staying simple.
Of course! Who doesn’t like trains?
This is a true, simple Eurogame. A small amount of screw your neighbor, some planning, and some luck (but not too much).
I think this is a good game for 1) new players to your group 2) or to introduce gaming or Eurogaming 3) and/or for people who really like trains/geography
However, its a pretty simplistic game and the only thing that shakes it up are the maps. I’d say the same thing about Funkenschlag (Power Grid), the game seems richer than it is, and the (wise) choices are fairly limited. This is a great game to play at the beginning of a session to warm up, or when time is short. It is a GREAT game for enjoying the feeling of “just playing and relaxing and gaming socially” without being heavy or though-intensive at all. But, it is not really of interest in the long term, as it lacks depth and rich choices.
I looked that game up on HBG’s site and I noticed something that I had ignored on something else I bought - it may be what you need. In the description of the game, in the first paragraph, is a critical sentence: “Game rules and setup charts will be provided by a download link after purchase.”
Assuming you created an HBG account before you bought the game, your account on HBG has a link to download the game rules on your account page. Login to your account and go to the order you placed to get the game. Take a look on the order form. The line for your game should include a line that says: “Spanish Civil War Game Click Here to Download”. If you click on the “Click Here to Download” you will get one of two response: either a download of the pdf with the game rules, etc… or notice that says: “Download Expired”. If you get download expired, open a trouble ticket and ask for a new download link. You will have to wait for Doug, et al., to come back from the holidays, but they are attentive and helped me out (gave me another copy of my download) when I complained about my problem.
I hope the above helps you get your rules.
@Imperious-Leader said in Axis & Brollies : Action Cards and Event Cards:
you should set it up with card decks made at “Artscow” or something like it in terms of name. They are sold as long as you set up account and you will earn a bit of change
www.makeplayingcards.com was recently (2019) used successfully by siredblood to produce his “Blood Bath” A&A version card deck - at a resulting fair price for consumers
drivethrucards.com was recently (2018) used successfully by Young Grasshopper to produce his co-deck “Omaha” and “Utah” cards for A&A G’40 - at an absolute steal of a deal for consumers
If you have not already done so, please consider selling your deck(s) at either or both sites - I would love to see you get paid for your work.
@SS-GEN said in The new forum has been a lot of work and it's not done yet:
I know it’s getting better but I posted a reply for my game report in house rules and with the changes the stuff just gets buried. Somebody post another tread reply and such now you have to go threw every topic to find it. Just sayin.
If I’m understanding correctly, there’s no difference between the old forum and the new forum for this situation. If you post a topic, and a bunch of folks post different topics, your topic will eventually end up on another page unless somebody replies. On forums, “stuff gets buried” all the time.
Also, you absolutely do not have to go through every topic to find your topic. This has come up multiple times, there are tips and tricks that cover this, I added helpers in the navigation bar. Not to be harsh but I’m just not sure what else we’re supposed to do.
Here’s a recap of your options:
Notifications: there is a bell near your avatar on the toolbar. When somebody replies, there will be a red number. Click that and you’ll get all of your notifications.
Replies to your Posts: I literally added this to the toolbar because people were complaining about finding their stuff. It’s the double-left arrow in the nav bar. It’s literally the same as clicking Notifications followed by “See all Notifications”
Recent Topics: Click the clock in the nav bar. Where it says “All Topics” select “Watched Topics” instead. You can even select a category to further narrow it down.
Recent Watched Topics: Click the eye in the nav bar. That will give you “recent” watched topics, including any topic you made or any topic you replied to. (I think I’ll change this to the next one)
All of Your Watched Topics: Go to your profile. Click the 3 dots. Click Watched.
Your Topics: Go to your profile. Click the 3 dots. Click Topics.
Bookmarks: If a particular topic is super important, then click the three dots on a topic, the one next to Reply, Quite, <heart>, < 3 dots> and click Bookmark. To find your bookmarks: Go to your profile. Click the 3 dots. Click Bookmarks.
That 6 ways to find your stuff. The old forums had a stupid icon that was hard to see and made no sense, I think it was a face or something. The replies to your posts was nice but we have that and more.
Note: there’s a bug with your watched topics if you have infinite scrolling turned on. I’ll file it later.
