Â I have the Global 1939 from Historical Boardgaming….was wondering if anyone has come up with a '39 setup for Global 1940
Go to House rule forum and look at the AARHE rules files, its a sticky.
See my thread about balance. Called repect: http://www.axisandallies.org/forums/index.php?topic=20622.0
As for balance, no one can say it is or isn’t so lets to come up with strategies rather than pointing fingers.
As I have explained before, the reason Chinese movement is limited is to reflect the historical fact that China was also embroiled in a civil war (Nationalists versus Communists) at the same time that it was fighting the Japanese invaders. As such, it had little interest in matters outside its own borders (keeping the Burma Road open for Allied aid being an obvious exception). This restriction keeps China from influencing the game outside of its borders without having complicated rules to represent the impact of this conflict.
Don’t forget about the warlord factions!:) Sure they were nominally supportive of Chaing but he had to keep a decent force back just to police his ‘allies’.
The problem with adding units to Russia is that America/England have been made virtually impossible to kill. So we either make the game more fun for Russia AND weaken USA/UK to make it possible to beat them again, or we don’t do anything and leave it a monochromatic game (attack Russia being the only viable strategy.)
I, for one, seriously miss being able to do KEF. I’m not saying it was an “I win” button, because it wasn’t. But I miss the OPTION. At least KCF (Kill Calcutta First) is still very viable.
