If Larry Harris designs a new A&A game for next year it will likely be a Big Battle game similiar to A&A D-Day, BOTB, and Gaudacanal.
I have but toghether a comprehensive list of WW2 battles suitable for becoming BigBattle A&A games.
These are the major battles of the war on all the different fronts.
I did not include common suggestions for A&A variants like A&A Mediteranean, or A&A Ostfront, or A&A China-Burma-India, or A&A Battle of the Atlantic as the scope of these conflicts extend years and are too large for BigBattle games which are battle/campaign oriented. Those four suggestion I imagine are already covered quite well in regular A&A especailly in the newer editions. However i did include Barbarossa as a possiblity, however I imagine a game of this nature would only cover the eastern front in 1941 and victory would be determined by how much progress the Axis made.
I also only included battles from WW2, as WOTC is cheap and likely will only make two or three new molds per game.
So everyone gets three votes, pick which ones you would like to see the most and then post saying which you picked and why . Battles are listed in cronological order, European theater is on the top, Pacific theater is on the bottom.
I listed these battles based on them being iconic and each side having a clear objective that could be illistrated in a board game.
Personally I am also interested in a board game that simply covers the strategic bombing of either Germany or Japan however i dont think that idea is popular so i didnt list it( ill list it if people like that idea). If anyone else has any other suggestions( or thinks one of the choices should be renamed to better describe the battle or adjust its scope) say so and i’ll add/change it. I want this to be comprehensive so Mr. Harris or WOTC or FMG or World Forge can see what A&A players want.
