@WIldBill said in Grasshopper’s G40 Invitational - Toronto 2021:
Too bad the tournament has been postponed to 2022. I’d like to participate when you finally have it.
Do you have a posted pdf copy of your tournament rules?
Also, do you have any alternate setups for G40?
Postponed to 2022, just means @variance and I are WORLD CHAMPIONS - 5 years in a ROW!
Eat that @Curtmungus
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).
With continuing Covid 19 restrictions some of us decided to play via Zoom using triple a. Of course this was not as much fun as playing face to face, but the four of us who joined in very much enjoyed the day.
Mark (@Credulous) kindly hosted the Zoom session.
We decided to play Anniversary (1942 set up). Mark played Japan and Adam (@Private-Panic) Germany / Italy. Leo (@Wittmann) took USA & Russia and Andrew (@h0lym0nk) GB. The Allies had a bid of 12 which they placed as a GB destroyer off Canada and a R artillery.
The opening moves on the R front favoured R, as G counter attacks all suffered more casualties than they inflicted. GB attempted its Taranto moment and lost heavily, leaving Italy able to capture Egypt. Japan suffered no mishaps, killing the GB fleet of India, the US flotilla at Pearl Harbour and the Chinese fighter.
GB considered its choice of factory locations and decided to opt for South Africa. Fortunately Hirohito spotted the possibility of capturing this and under Japanese orders the Italian navy navigated the Suez Canal and dropped 2 ground units in south east Africa, and these were able to capture the factory the following turn.
The US landed in north Africa, but then lost its 2 transports, defended by a single destroyer, to a G Luftwaffe attack. The US decided to allocate a considerable proportion of its resources towards an Atlantic navy sufficient to allow further landings in north Africa. These pushed towards Egypt.
This allowed J some freedom in the Pacific. J captured India and built a factory there. Briefly this appeared threatened by US pressure on Egypt and a R threat south from the Caucasus, but the prudent deployment of J fighters to India and Egypt stymied any Allied ambitions. Later Australia also had the honour of joining the J empire!
Meanwhile G managed to keep R in check while also combining with I units to deny the Allies the opportunity of gaining the French national objective. As a result the Axis were gaining most of their national objectives, but the Allies few of theirs. This and the collapse of the British Empire gave the Axis an income advantage of around 30 ipcs per turn.
The Allies surrendered, with a G stack before the walls of Moscow and a growing J threat on Caucasus. The US Pacific fleet had captured a couple of islands (while J replaced the naval fighters it had sent to India) but had no opportunity to effect further advances. The US Atlantic fleet had sailed south to defend Brazil from Italy’s South African fleet, robbing north Africa of reinforcements. Perhaps the only bright point for the Allies was GB’s capture of Norway.
The four of us had a chat and decided that the autumn and winter BoB dates should be arranged with the intention of falling back on a virtual event should Coronavirus continue to preclude face to face play.
We have a Bay Area tourney weekend once a year in January. You Sacramento boys are always welcome to join. One of our guys actually comes from Sacramento. The games we usually play are Global, Anniversary, 1942.2 and whatever anyone wants to play. It’s pretty laid back with good laughs and dice rolling
Weekly Axis & Allies Event at The Vault Gaming Room
We host an event every week at the Vault Gaming Room. you can check our Facebook page for upcoming events.
Not sure but the guy said 42.2 is default game if players disagree on game. But if they agree, any AA game can be played but i don’t think Global is played until the final on Sunday. ON Friday The War Game: World War Two is often played or another.
It’s almost that time of year again! Come join us for the third year bay area gathering. Located twenty minutes north of the golden gate bridge in Novato. Three day event and you can come one day or all three days. Please bring AA games if you want them to be played. I will have a BBR game up, 1940 global out, Anniversary, 1914, and hopefully war room. Food takeout places nearby and airbnb and hotels. Lets kick off the new year with some dice rolling! Feel free to ask questions
Its our second year running! We will be playing the Bloodbath ruleset! Catered food, alcohol, and lots of fun! Event is in Laguna Hills, about 7 min south from the John Wayne airport.
Price is 50 per person, this is to mainly cover the food and drinks which is provided Sat/sun… Monday you are on your own for food.
Unfortunately this event sold out super fast via youtube, if you would like to be on standby or I can possibly put you on a 3 player team (we have a few already)… just message me before hand and ill ask around for ya.
Lots of folks coming this year! Some of us will also be attending Disneyland on the 24th and 25th … BOOM!

Oh, forgot to answer the time limit question… It depends on how many people are there. If we have three rounds, yes there’s a time limit on prelim rounds (enforced very softly). Think it was 7 hours last con. It was only enforced once, most games move quickly and are resolved by then. If there are only enough people for 2 rounds, there won’t be a limit.
If you want you can send me a DM with your contact information so I can add you to our A&A whatsapp group witch currently has 31 members
We are in the process of planning the next event in the south of the Netherlands (near Den Bosch). Most likely the next date will be the 21st of September. I will post a new thread on this forum once the date is final.
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.
@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.
@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.
