I am trying to get a group of friends to start playing A&A and I was hoping that someone had created something similar to the old CSub Beginner's Strategy Guides updated/changed to reflect A&A 1941 rules/map.  I just love the simple straightforward way they put everything you needed to know to get going on a single sheet of paper.

Anyone see anything like that or have any interest in helping me, a newbie myself, update the originals?

Here is an example of what I am speaking of:

I for one am unaware of such a guide Mordineus.

Good luck with your friends.

Well, I guess I will start revising these myself.

I would really, REALLY enjoy some suggestions as to some turn one strategies.

Anyone have some suggestions for what everyone's first round purchases should be ?

Guess it depends on the plan, but for me typically:

R nearly always infantry
G generally 1 tank and 2 inv
UK - perhaps 2 inv (always build a unit in India + protect the bomber in the UK from G air attack) and save the rest for a future naval build
J - either a transport if going for the islands or grouhd units to push through China for the Caucasus
US - 2 destroyers

well, here is a first take on Russia.  It was both the first one, and as it has the fewest options, perhaps the simplest one:

We met and played yesterday, with some very incomplete versions of these that I slapped together.

They were appreciated and at least got them thinking in an analytical way about the game.  I also think it helped them to quantify what the variables are to play.

I don't know if they will be of use to anyone else, but here they are:

The game was a hit, so I am hoping to make this a regular event.

Once again, if anyone has any feedback on how to make these better, please let me know.

Thanks.
