Just wondering: I didnt think you could put troops on a ship and off load on same turn? Or am I misunderstanding? Or is this a new rule, I have the 2007 version with no cruisers
As far as Germany turn one is concerned, I think a lot of players use the battleship to kill the med destroyer and land 2 units in Egypt with the transport from Italy and kill Egypt turn one with one plane from Balkans and 2 units adjacent to Egypt. The one game I didn’t do this, the allies made short work of me…… the med cruiser can be killed with just planes.
You could always do that.
Tnx for the tips. I have already considering the tech developments. But the other senarios and the national advantages seem great to. Maybe i will try them in the future.
I would not add all of the extras at once. Maybe do tech development for a few games then add in a couple of the National Advantages then later after a few more games add in the National Objectives.
For the NAs we roll a couple of dice and the numbers that come up are the ones we use. If we roll doubles then we just re-roll one of the die to get a different number. Look at this for an idea on how to use the advantages: http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=ah/prod/axis This is the rule book for the Revised version which is the one that 1942 replaced so the NAs are a little different. Look at page # 35 for appendix 3: Option Rules just for some ideas on how to pick which ones to use.
Enjoy AA42. It is a fun game.
I would like to insert the technology research of 2nd edition into Spring 1942.
You’re right about the paper IPC’s - they’re missing from the Spring 1942 edition and I also use the IPC notes from my second edition game.
I don’t recommend using the technological advances from the old game in the 1942 edition. Apart from A&A being better without tech anyway (imho), the second edition advances are really unbalanced and tend to disrupt the natural course of play, to some degree even turning it into a game of chance rather than skill.
I don’t like tech myself either since Classic but I’d say that you if need to have tech on your games then check the AA50 tech chart. It has nearly all of the techs from Classic and 6 new techs.
