A&A Spring 1942 IPC (& More) Log Sheet

  • ever since the beginning back we had gotten a used copy of the original 1986 board… we had to use paper and pen to log in the IPC’s, purchases, tech., saved games, etc.  when we got the revised edition we played maybe 2 games with the paper ipc’s then started writing it down cause it seemed easier and caused fewer arguments.

    as a graphic designer I created a chart for the current Spring 1942 game. It keeps track of IPC’s, Purchases, Advantages (if used), Tech. Development (If Used), Current Round, has a Unit stat chart, A game notes section (for those instances of amazing Di rolls, awesome strategies, jokes, pranks, etc.)

    File is meant to be printed on the back (long edge binding)

  • i’ll use it next game for sure, thanks for that!

    Keredrex  very nice chart. Wonder if somebody can make one for Global 40?

  • @Gen:

    Keredrex  very nice chart. Wonder if somebody can make one for Global 40?

    thanks… the only problem i see with making one for global is space on a standard 8x10 sheet of paper.  in order to add more countries i would probably have to remove the game notes section and purchase units lists, but maybe leave space for writing in the purchases.  …
    ill give it a shot though… but i dont have the global game…
    what would i need to add?

  • 2017 2016 2015 Organizer '14 Customizer '13 '12 '11 '10

    Yes make one for Global 1940.

  • Very nice! In our games, we don’t really keep track of anything else than IPC income, but we play with OOB rules. Looking at your chart, I wonder how you can keep track of all of this if you’re not using said chart!

    If it takes 2 sheets so be it.

  • @Imperious:

    Yes make one for Global 1940.

    dont have the game… ill need the info… any changes to the units and new units, All the countries/powers involved starting income (and if there is some change to there income thru game play… if im correct america starts lower then gets more IPC’s later)…  from what Ive overheard about the global game its “complex” so the sheet may be a bit difficult but ill try.  Off the back im thinking it would work on 11x17 paper that way its on 1 sheet or turn the 8x10 portrait (as opposed to landscape) and only have 3 or 4 rounds per side.

    thank you… we started adding the purchases in the log cause of an argument on what was bought cause they put too many chips down. also an argument of  placing of a complex then trying to move it after 2 countries already went and arguing that it was accidentally knocked to another spot.  now we log everything… especially where complexes are placed.  the cool thing is we keep the sheets and can look back at old games  for bragging rights.

    Refer to the AA50 thread, some people have made these charts but not like yours.

  • Can anyone share a similar log for the 2nd Edition? Thanks!

  • @StormSurge:

    Can anyone share a similar log for the 2nd Edition? Thanks!

    I can make one for that version… its only a matter of deleting some units and changing info from the 42 version

  • @Keredrex:

    That would be sweet!  Thanks!!

  • I like your National Advantages.  How do you determine which ones you are able to use and what does each do for the game?  I like this idea.

  • @docfav7:

    I like your National Advantages.  How do you determine which ones you are able to use and what does each do for the game?  I like this idea.

    we put together a list from the vast amount of house rules and advantages found in the threads and previous games.  the list is still adjusted as we play them, as we try to maintain balance as much as possible.

    Here they are…
    ADVANTAGES Spring 1942
    They are chosen by row (Row A, Row E, etc.) (we roll a Di),  this means if row C is chosen all countries use Row C.  we have not tried to pick out advantages per country (Russia gets A, Germany Gets E, Etc. Etc.) if you try it let me know.

    ****Row B… B1 & B2 this row has problems. there are cool advantages in there but we are not sure if or how to balance them and they feel unbalanced. B2 are the newest additions to try to fix this row and see if we can get 5 that work.

    all other rows have been played at least a few times some more than others.  And both sides axis & allies have won. now this could be due to many factors, strategy, dice, stronger players, and of course the advantages.  Im sure this list will be commented on and criticized, and since this list is a culmination of many other house rules Ive found, its possible there have been changes or playtested corrections Etc. Etc. Etc.   Ultimately, there fun as hell to incorporate and we are now at times playing with 2 advantage rows. We are also attempting to bring in Tech Development to possibly play with an advantage in game. You may notice some advantages are taken from Tech developments, we figure… its an advantage to the player to not have to pay for a tech. that is active from the start of the game.
