I’m about to arrange an A&A 2 vs 2 tournament via PBF.
Hereby searching for participants (we have at todays date 5 applicants).
If interested, please notify me by writing in this thread (follow the link).
I have had the board game for pushing two months. I played 4 games on it. I just aborted and then started my first game online.
My head is wayyyyy up my behind, so I’m looking for a fellow fresh off the boat newbie to learn with.
Out of the box rules, no bid. Pick your side and I will play the other.
If you are an experienced 1940 player, pick on someone your own size. (unless you want to do a tutorial type of game and show me the ropes)
Hello, looking for very fast games of Anniversary Edition on play by forum, with a bid for the Allies and national objectives on. I’d like to get through at least 2 full rounds per week, ideally more than that. Otherwise flexible on the options – will play 1941, 1942, low luck/full luck, tech, no tech, etc.
I’m not very good at sharing, but I’d be happy to play against you and your friend 2v1! I’m looking for a game of Anniversary. Pretty flexible on the options, as long as there’s a bid and national objectives are on.

@CWO-Marc As for what we did and did not have back in 2000, I made a small chart
Great chart, Midnight Reaper; it brings back lots of memories. A further point to note is that, in Classic, only the infantry sculpt was nation-specific and was based on authentic WWII designs; the equipment sculpts started following the same design principle with Europe / Pacific / Revised, though it took a long while to achieve (by combining E1940.2, P1940.2 and 1941) a full array for everyone except France. We were also treated to some neat special-category sculpts: the German blockhouses in D-Day, the American and German trucks in Bulge, and the entirely-other-war sculpt set of 1914. Another nice development in the official games has been the addition of China, Italy, ANZAC and France to the original five powers (US, UK, USSR, Germany and Japan). And in the early days, people who wanted extra types of units (or extra colours to represent other countries) had to make do with third-party products like the Xeno and Table Tactics ones or the Enemy on the Horizon expansion set, the quality of which was uneven and the availability of which wasn’t always great. Things certainly have changed.
Oh, one more thing. The huge Japanese battleship was called Yamato. Yamamoto was the name of Japan’s most famous admiral. Maybe the arrival of Admiral Yamamoto would indeed correspond to having an extra battleship, but I’m not sure that’s what you intended.
