Alpha+2 Global, Europe and Pacific Setup and NO charts - FINAL.



  • Hey just purchased the global game about 2 months ago and have just managed to play a global game 1 week ago. I have downloaded the Pacific errata and updates and picked bits and pieces up for Europe but im unclear on what this alpha+2 is with extra NO’s and starting positions, and differnet turn sequences. Are these official changes or are these to unofficial as to make the game more balanced. Sorry if this has been explained somewhere else but this seemed like the right thread to ask.

    Cheers



  • Very cool, thank you.

    These charts are proposed changes from Larry Harris and will most likely be in the next prints of Europe and Pacific.

    Here is a link of the “out of the box” version:

    @Rus-T:

    Man, what a great job!  Thanks!

    Is there supposed to be 1 tank in Western USA?

    Nope!  Thanks for letting me know!  I will have make the changes and re-post them on Monday as I don’t have the original files with me.

    Here’s some setup cards I made for the Alpha +2. Not as nice as TwistedAries but it’s my small contribution.

    Sorry to do this, but I just noticed 2 more omissions:
    JAPAN
    Kiangsi = 3 infantry, 1 artillery
    SOVIET UNION
    Ukraine = 3 infantry, 1 minor IC

    I find that last addition very interesting.  Now Russia gets 4 ICs.  On one hand, it will make it a little easier for Russia to get troops to the front.  On the other hand, it could make it easier for Germany or Italy to build up for taking Stalingrad or even Moscow.  Really looking forward to trying this new version out.

    Yes I also found those omissions as well.

    Also something about the wording was wrong regarding the Soviet NO for Berlin.

    Was playing today… a few notes…

    It would be helpful if the rule changes were ALSO in a nice chart 😛

    And if the NO and setup charts for each country were TOGETHER as oppossed to a seperate pieces.  It strange having German and Soviet setups on the same piece of paper 😞

    However, i am impressed you blasted these out!

    These were fantastic, and helped out alot with game setup and play.  ESPECIALLY The NO and Unit Cost charts.

    I fixed the wording on the Soviet NO.

    Yeah it is a little weird to have them on the same sheet but they were intended to be printed out, cut out individually and glued together on a card or laminated so that the setup is on the front and the NO’s is on the back of the card.  Similar to the AA50 cards.

    It’s alot of work but Im sure you will get them finalized.

    Thank you for all your effort!



  • Thanks, very helpful!
    Have printed them out and will use them soon!



  • Thank you very much

    very very handy

    Thank you Twisted!  I think these are great.

    I have posted them (Thanks for your permission) to the FMG website so the greater AAA community out side this forum can be aware of the Alpha changes.



  • Pip Pip! Top Draw old chap!

    these have been very handy


  • Customizer

    Thanks!

    I have put everything in one file and also paired the nation setup with their NO’s together on a single page.

    Looks like they have been removed because of being outdated.
