Axis&Allies Express: EAST AFRICA



  • Sounds good i dont see y not. Is it like a massive board or a campaign styled game like Shanghai?



  • More campaign. Probably this kind of area-(I’m gonna make a better map though)

  • Operation Barbarossa sounds fun to me (German invasion of Russia on western border)

    @Sun_Tzu:

    Operation Barbarossa sounds fun to me (German invasion of Russia on western border)

    Yes, but I wonder if the scale might be a teensy-weensy too big for an express game.



  • Maybe, but not if you use just west border of Russia and East of German Territory… idk



  • Rules are done, just working on profiles. and then change it to a Open office Document as opposed to keynote.
    Considering enlarging map to include all of lake Victoria and even into Rwanda (maybe).
    Either way, this will hopefully be done this weekend. PM me if you would like to be on a play test list. (Cannot guarantee anything)

  • YES! u mean this upcoming weekend right? if so im gonna try to step up Exporter and see if i can get it out within 2 weeks.



  • Croesus did you change your pic?



  • RULES
    http://www.mediafire.com/?jnmrc1glgiclt3d
    Setup is Done, but I am reworking the map and it may change

    @Sun_Tzu:

    Croesus did you change your pic?

    Yes, that is Hailie Selassie, The Ethiopian Leader during this campaign. Also a holy figure in Rastafarian-ism. As a side note, I am not Rastafarian in belief, Selassie was just a Bad Apple (BA)



  • Just a few things for your rulebook:
    1. For setup shouldnt setup be in the title box?
    2. In the Necessary Game Components section the words out of the table are overlapping the table
    3. In 2B+2C the words are really small but there is a lot of space
    4. In a lot of the Unit Profiles, the words don’t fit on the page

    Sorry if I’m being nitpicky  :mrgreen:



  • YES! Im looking at the rules now. But wat Pi**** me off is that i dont have my printer hooked up! :x no gameplay today

    Not Nitpicky at all, It just had a traumatic experience from keynote to powerpoint. I’ll post the new one after dinner



  • I HATE COMPUTERS!!!
    MY APPLE IS A NICE THING BUT NO FORMATS ARE PERMANENT



  • Hey Croesus when will we have the game setup? Are there any optional rules for us players who know how to play?



  • As soon as microsoft stops  trying to assassinate this game

    @Croesus:

    Yes, that is Hailie Selassie, The Ethiopian Leader during this campaign.

    “I must still fight on until my tardy allies appear, and if they never come, I say to you without bitterness, the West will perish.”

  • Nice work Croesus. I cant wait to test it out.



  • Again do you have any NAs?



  • Nice work. Maybe we could combine East Africa Syria/Iraq and El Alamien into a campiagn Such as The Middle Eastern/african campiagn



  • Nice looking rule book Croesus

    I will be happy to play test. But will have to by using the forum dicey



  • @Pvt.Ryan:

    Again do you have any NAs?

    That  is coming, as well as reinforcement charts

    @The:

    Nice work. Maybe we could combine East Africa Syria/Iraq and El Alamien into a campiagn Such as The Middle Eastern/african campiagn

    That might work, but That would
    A) Have to be a monstrous game
    B) no longer really be express
    C) I still love My East Africa campaign and the new proposed game will only be in addition to the games

    How do you use the dicey, I tried to start a game earlier couldn’t figure it out



  • You type in :dice #d#: The first # is how many dice you want to roll and the second # is how many sides the dice has.

    How do you use the dicey, I tried to start a game earlier couldn’t figure it out

    What I meant was that it was like a box set. With three games in it

    So you would buy the AAX African/Middle Eastern campiagn box set and they would get:

    AAX East Africa
    AAX 2nd battle of El Alamien
    AAX Operation Exporter
