You could add to the order of play the sequence for amphibious assault.
1. Sea Combat (if necessary)
2. Pre-emptive strike
3. Offshore Bombardment
4. Land Battle

Mines happen during the movement phase, but you could have a reminder to check for mines before any sea combat.

I took a break from A&A, but will use the order of play and IPC chart when I battle my son tomorrow.

Hi everyone...I also made some reference cards and thought I would post them for any to use.  I've attached Austria for now.  The rest later today.  These are simple "Screen Shots" of the cards to cut down on size for the forum...higher quality available if you like.

Enjoy!

Dukla,

Thanks for the positive feedback!  I actually changed out the attachment above...the Amphibious Assault section was still bugging me.  I've based them off the original Europe Cards, I really wish 1914 had come with something similar.  Once I finally decide they are good I plan to get them printed on some thick card stock.

Chacmool,

Thanks a lot!  Hope you enjoy the whole collection  smiley

It made sense to include the USW on the Germany card, and our A&A group kept wanting to give Subs a first strike capability...so I included that as well.

I also wanted to have something about the air supremacy and artillery for defending units.  Since France is 1 of only 2 countries to begin the game with a Fighter, I thought it made sense to include it on the France card.  Also, our group had a disagreement about the strafing run by the fighters, so I got that clarified as well.

It wasn't until the Ottoman Empire was about to capture India, that we realized the British could build in Bombay.  Also, since the British start the game with controlling Egypt, it seemed a good place to identify how the Suez Canal is controlled.

At this point, I decided I wanted a little note/reminder on every card...so for the Ottoman Empire I figured it would have something about the canals.  Since the Dardanelles & Bosphorus are open by default in the game, I went with the Suez Canal.  Plus, I find that grey spot between Egypt and Trans-Jordan to be misleading.

*Though...I'm thinking about a House-Rule for controlling the Turkish Straits through Constantinople.  It's my understanding that they were closed during WWI anyways.

I really like that we have to wait until Round 4 for the US to join the war...so I thought Italy could have something similar.  So on our second game we went with a Round 1 Neutrality for them.

Also...Krieghund was kind enough to correct me on some Sea Combat rules. I thought it went nicely on the Italian card.

And finally the United States.  I had a lot of space left over...and wasn't sure what to do with it.  I realized that the Official FAQ corrected/replaced/clarified entire sentences of the Rulebook.  So, I used the space on the U.S. card to get the official verbiage of US Neutrality from the Rulebook combined with the FAQ.

Overall...I'm really pleased with the cards and think I'll get them printed on card stock here real soon.
I hope you enjoy them and of course anyone else is welcome to enjoy them as well!

Fantastic work! Tanks a lot!

Comes the neutral-Italy-optional-rule from you or is it something official ?

Chacmool,

Nothing official...just something I found odd (Allied Italy) when I first unboxed/played the game. 

Historically, Italy didn't join the war until 1915.

http://www.history.com/this-day-in-history/italy-declares-war-on-austria-hungary

While I understand the need to strike a balance between historical accuracy and a board game, it just felt weird starting with Allied Italy.  Of course, the argument can be made that Italy goes second to last in the game...so maybe it's a moot point.

Then I saw some various discussion of the subject on the boards here...
http://www.axisandallies.org/forums/index.php?topic=30615.0
http://www.axisandallies.org/forums/index.php?topic=29300.0

...so, I hope you enjoy the cards!  If you go with the neutral first round play...let me know how it works for you!
