Uhm, this is normal.
During the olympic hostages Pres. Carter hummed and hawed and wondered what to do. Russia found the brother of the terrorist leader and mailed him a testicle with a little note saying “more to follow.”
They got their athletes back next day WITH a televised apology. America got theirs back after a major financial transaction and many weeks without an apology….
Guess who has problems with terrorists today and who doesnt?
In order to use World at war you will need the original or Pacific. I think the best game is a combination of Europe and Pacific on the World at War Map. Although I think Europe and Pacific did the oceans much better. Maybe I need to make my own map!
SUD: the difference is im not attacking a poster as you do. That post is in a thread called basically “the french suck”. Your rhetoric over Jens gaff was a series of posts over many days. Anything else you took out of context is of no material issue> its totally ubsurb to take a point about a portion of a sentence ( e.g. “you such and such after a period of months”) and can even come up with any possible angle to assume that was the main point when it was only a small part of the sentence. But your the master of pulling things out of context.
You have too many issues that will not allow you to post a thoughtful post because you dont seem to understand that this forum is not gladiator combat with words… Its a pleasant exchange of ideas with others and you have turned things into life and death. This is why you dont belong here IMO. If you continue to behave this way you will have to find another place to do what you do.
Depending on where you live you shouldn’t have too much trouble finding a comic book shop or card shop or dedicated game shop that would have a copy of something on the shelf. There isn’t really a national game store franchise. It is mostly just some guy with a store or maybe a regional concern with four or five shops.
My local shop usually gets one copy for anyone who’s a regular who asks and one for the shelf when a new version comes out. Typically though he doesn’t replace that till Christmas shopping season but will order one for you with a small deposit. The markup on these games isn’t very high so you probably aren’t going to go to one shop and find a copy of everything.
Toys R’ Us probably has copies of ‘42 and maybe a decent chance of Guadalcanal or a less decent chance of BOTB. I’d think it pretty slim to find a copy of Pacific or Europe at Toy R’ Us given the price point.
Try your yellow pages under hobby, or games, or comics. Also you might try something like www.comicshoplocator.com and give your closest shop a call. You might also try something like this Days of Wonder Store Locator. Someplace that sells games like that is likely to have a copy or two of Axis and Allies.
Something like this might help.
Maybe the producers are making political points ?
The 2nd URL link points out that the book is written in 1996, and the producers related their show to US presidential administrations that did not yet exist at publishing time.
